Girl. Inspired.

It all started before the little one was born. No, it was when my husband was a little boy. His mom would bake and decorate a special birthday cake for him every year. My husband has such happy memories of this growing up. He has mentioned oh so subtlety how he would love for me to do the same when we had a family of our own.
See, I am not a cake decorating kind of girl. Cooking and baking does not make me happy like some people. So for four years now, without my hubby's blessing, the little ones birthday cake has been bakery made.

But today, I am inspired!

The talented and sweet Stef from Girl. Inspired made these adorable cupcakes and mini cake for her daughters first birthday. They are so cute I can't stand it!

And she sews!

I think I may surprise everyone with a homemade cake next year...
