Well after three attempts and one breakdown moment were I even went to a bakery determined to give over the title of mommy cake maker, I think I have finally resolved my problem. I have created a cupcake cake that I think will serve as my daughter's very first birthday cake! I so wanted to be the maker of this special cake.
Instead of attempting to ice the bottom, I cleverly did my research and discovered a way to use melted chocolate candies. What do you think?
So now it's off to the store to buy the perfect sprinkles and the right size cake decorating bag!
This event takes place exactly one month from today! So sad to think the first year is almost over, but we will have one fabulous cupcake party to celebrate. Maybe that will help keep mom's sad tears away. Where did my little baby girl go?

We framed these pictures in a three section frame and wrapped it up all pretty for Daddy. Along with this, we decorated a photo box with important pictures. We tried to include all of Daddy's favorite moments with Mollye. Daddy- we realized you need to be in the picture more:) Don't be camera shy! Then it was off to wrap that one up all nice and pretty. As you can tell, our Daddy is ok with simple and sweet. We love that about him! We would love to buy him a flat screen tv or a new truck, but let's face it financially that day is way down the road. So glad dad is easy going and loving.
The presents remain hid until the fabulous morning of Father's Day! Mollye and I anxiously await his arrival out of bed. We wait and we wait and we wait... Hmm... Mollye, I'm not sure he is getting up. I know- we'll make him breakfast in bed and WAKE HIM UP!! So we leave the presents and head for the kitchen.
Dad is finally ready to open those presents. Of course he gets a little help from his sidekick- aka Mollye Bear! He loves them! I think he is realizing that his little girl is growing up fast. His first Father's Day is here, and he has one of the best relationships in the world- the love of a father/daughter relationship. Go ahead Mollye- smile and ask for anything you want. The world is yours in his eyes.
The day continued with a fabulous lunch and lots of playtime, but most importantly this picture was captured:
To me it says:
I don't need anyone to tell me about Heaven,
I look at my daughter and I believe.
