Another year has come and gone! This year has blessed our family with a beautiful little girl in February and my son couldn't be happier to be a BIG brother!

So I, like many other parents, blinked and a entire year flew by!!!! My lil'guy turned 3 years old!!!! Party planning was made extra easy this year with the help of Pinterest. I just can't get ENOUGH of this site - so many ideas - it is my newest obsession!!!

In August, I began to peruse many pins of boys birthday parties and wanted to make this birthday extra special! My top 3 picks were a Lego party, a Pirate Party and a Construction theme party. Wanna know what I picked???

Pirate Birthday Cake

This cake turned out even better than I could have ever imagined!

Everyone at the party asked "how do you do this with 2 small kids?" my reply was "an entire afternoon of baking (2 failed vanilla cake recipes) and 9hours with an amazing co-decorator, my cousin Donna, who is an amazing talent and helped make this all possible! you can visit her facebook page here.

The bottom tier is a rich chocolate cake with a chocolate fudge buttercream. Both the middle and top tiers are Vanilla cake recipe with whipped vanilla bean frosting.

A HUGE thanks to all those cake decorators out there that gave me LOADS of inspiration for this cake!

Now the pressure and countdown is on for my lil' sweet girls 1st Birthday!!!!!
only 45 days to go!!!!!!

I cannot BELIEVE that it has been almost 6 months since my last blog post - I am sooooo VERY sorry and miss you all!

The reasoning for my lack of blogging isn't because I am no longer baking cupcakes, it is because I have been busy baking the most delicious lil'cupcake in my belly!

Baby S was born on February 7th, 2012 and we couldn't be happier! Now that we are a family of 4, I will do my best to find my rhythm of balancing mommy duties and getting back to creating and baking some delicious cupcakes!

I do have a few blog posts partially completed - look out for them to be posted in the upcoming weeks!
