Oh the dreaded day...Emily Grace turned 2 :( I really enjoy making my children's birthday cakes every year. Each cake is specifically "designed" based upon their personality, their interests or just something cute that reminds me of them. This year since my sweet baby girl is such a climber, what would be more appropriate then a monkey cake. The day before her birthday we were hit with a snow storm and pretty much stuck indoors. I went through the cabinets and was thrilled that i had all of the ingredients for my girl's monkey cake. She giggled with delight when she saw the finished product and it made me smile--she's such a sweetheart and I cannot wait to see what this year brings...my final year of changing diapers!
