    My little girl turned five this past week.  Five!  In the midst of extensive Christmas baking, I took a break from all this green and red and peppermint and made a perfectly perfect girly girl cake.

    With Audrey’s help of course!  The last couple years I have let her “design” her cake;  she tells me what colors and themes she wants and I do my best to make it happen.

    Like this Rose Cake.  And this Neapolitan Cake.

     Her requests were pretty simple:

    1. Lots of flowers

    2. Every color in the rainbow.

    3. Lots of frosting. (but no chocolate cake because her brother doesn’t like chocolate and she is very thoughtful like that)

    I even let her pick the cake stand, which just happens to be one of my all time favorites.  I found it in a specialty shop near our new home.  The owner of the shop did not want to let it go!  Even though there was a price tag on it, they had been using it for display for so long it had become part of the ambiance.  I tried so hard to not show my desperation, but in my head I was screaming, “I HAVE TO HAVE THAT CAKE STAND!”

    I think her soul heard my souls cries.

    Do you think I am being too dramatic?  Let’s see… what do most women love?

    Ah yes.  Shoes.  Pretend I was talking about a pair of Jimmy Choo’s.

    Back to the cake.  Audrey did request a Rosette Cake, but… and this is hard for me to admit… sometimes I get tired of making that cake!  So I asked her if it would be ok to change things up a little tiny bit.

    She refused.

    I asked sweetly.  She said no.  She crossed her arms and stood up tall and looked me in the eye.

    “I promise I will still try to make it pretty!” I pleaded.

    “Oh sure mom!  Whatever you want.” And she happily flounced away in her princess dress.

    So this is my “compromise”.  I didn’t make the full on rosette shape, but still tried to make it “flowery”.  And it has every color in the rainbow.  Except Indigo.

    Cause like, I prefer my rainbows with six colors ok?

     Audrey loved her cake and loved being a princess for a whole day.

    She loved the attention and the gifts.

    But most of all, I hope she loved the love.
