Phoebe's 9th Birthday

Phoebe turned 9 today! Only 1 year left of single digits. She has been so excited for her birthday to come this year. Phoebe wanted a sleepover so I decided on just a small group of friends this year so I wouldn't stress about so many kids. Since Phoebe is all about cooking and baking we decided to have a cooking party. It started a few days ago where Aunt Tina took Phoebe down to The Cake Stand and let Phoebe make a cake all on her own with their excellent supplies. Phoebe spent a lot of time sketching and planning exactly what she wanted. She made it come to life and it looked AMAZING! She pretty much did all of this cake by herself. The only part Tina did was to write her name. The rest of the construction was all Phoebe with some coaching from Tina. I am pretty sure my girl has a gift because this cake was perfect (and super cute) even the layers inside were all perfectly straight! Yummy white cake with chocolate butter-cream frosting in-between the layers and vanilla butter-cream for the rest. My only concern is that she is already enjoying 3 layers of cake for a birthday cake, how many layers do you think her wedding cake will need to be?The party started off with the girls decorating aprons and then wearing them while making individual pizzas. They all loved rolling out the dough and spreading on the toppings. It was a really fun time and all the girls were excited to see and taste how their creations came out.
