one MORE year!


I was Thrilled about today's challenge word! We threw Ava's 2nd Birthday Pool Party Bonanza today and I was SURE it would be full of MORE, MORE, MORE situations.... and I was right! More ice cream, More cupcakes, More presents, More FUN- I was in "MORE-Utopia"!!!

But this was the picture I decided on... just the simple cake shot (with WAY MORE candles than a two year old requires). This little personal cake for Ava-Lou was "more" than she wanted, only a couple of dainty-ish bites taken out- but then again, she was probably full from the three candles she ate. Completely. Gobbled. Down.

I love it! I love the colors, and the haywire manner in which the candles are all askew. It's very fun, and looks quite fitting for a two year old. Today was my husband's birthday, but his cake wasn't nearly as effective.

That is the perfect cake for a two-year-old! I also really like your striped plate, and the candles lying on the side.

Happy birthday to Ava! You've got a lot of "more" in there... I love it!

Awesome story--why are kids so into eating things we silly adults consider inedible? I love the shot, too--the colors are striking and the off kilter candles make it look like a child's cake. Beautiful!

This is so gorgeous with all those bright, vivid colors!! I love how the candles are everywhere and all the tons of sprinkles. This is such an excellent shot! I also love how you framed the shot... you know.. not including the whole cake, but getting just half of it in there.

Excellent job!!!

That is awesome! I love that she gobbled down her candles! What a great child!

I can just hear all the rowdy kids running around, see the balloons and streamers... this is totally a party cake!

Great job Katy!
Happy Birthday to your sweet Ava.
