Kyra's 4th Birthday Party

Okay, WARNING! Plenty of photos ahead.....(I love blogs with plenty of photos, don't ya?) :D

It all started with this! Rich chocolate cupcakes made with lots and lots of melted chocolate......
FOURTY, yes, 4.0. birthday cupcakes decorated in PINK coz Kyra requested for PINK HELLO KITTY theme! There's PINK GEL, PINK SUGAR, PINK FONDANT ALPHABETS, PINK CANDIES on top of the chocolate ganache here!!!!!!!
Just for fun....I 'studded' the otherwise ordinary baby pink alphabets with 'black diamonds' (metaphorically speaking of course)........using black edible gel for that funky un-baby-ish look! She's 4 years old already, funky is legit for this age, no? :D

A Hello Kitty who wore pink polkadot jumper and pink flower on her head!
Holding red heart-shaped balloons, which is actually the exact balloon shape that we used for her party really.....coincidence!
And here's the recipes for the cake + chocolate frosting!
and I won't forget to add that it's very you should try this recipe some day!
And this is US. Too bad we didn't have more snapshots! But the bday girl was very happy that night.....VERY VERY happy.....even my Godma noticed!
SEE? She's fact, even before the day of the party actually!!!
This is birthday babe with her fave aunt (sis#2) and all the presents she got!
All the presents are great and the babes love it, thank you very much relatives 'sekalian'! :D
So great they could not help but start a band right away! LOL! Here Maia is playing the drum while Kyra's on maracas shakin' away! It was a lot of fun when they opened the presents....a lot of laughters.....
You see how matchy matchy the presents are????
It's as though they knew her mummy's makin her a play kitchen and they coordinated!
Perfect coordination, I'd say!
Water pot, fridge, bday cake, stainless steel pots n pan.....perfect for her new kitchen!
The ultra inexpensive birthday banner in PINKs and HELLO KITTY.....something simpler coz I was really rushing her birthday present the past few days before the party by the way...(the kitchen).

The morning after! :)
Their fave aunt came and they 'officiated' all the presents!

Oh dear! Kyra looked like a butcher in the market in this shot! HEHE!
That's a dress I made for her a few months ago but it was a little too long then.....
The red piece is a play apron I made for them, each babe has one.
Little sis just lovesssss the drum super duper much! Isn't she a cute little drummer girl in pink here!? She's pink from dress to drum, gosh!
The two sisters sharing their happy moments......

All I can say is, a smaller intimate birthday party like this is wayyyyy better than a big grand one.
I get to enjoy every single minute without having to worry if I left out a guest on the deck or something........and things are more casual and fun too! Even the birthday babe approved!!!

And if birthday babe can read this many years down the road,
mummy would like to wish you
HAPPY BIRTHDAY (of course!)
a lot a lot of joys in your life
and hope that you'll always be in the pink of health!
And you truly are a great and understanding kid!
AMEN to that!

You're NOT an Ordinary Stay-at-Home Mum!
You're a Multi-talented Mum!
How lucky to have a mum who can both Sew and Bake!
I've been to sewing classes before but I've returned everything I learnt to my teacher until I saw your masterpieces which makes me feel like joining the class again!
Hey, where did you learn your skill from?
Besides, are those fondant recipe from wilton as well?

Hello again Myra,
ur compliment made my day....(no, week! LOL!)...tqvm :D

I have always wanted to go for proper sewing lessons, u know....the REAL classes where u learn how to sew zippers, pockets, collars, draft patterns and such?...but well, I am tied. my two babes. Maybe I will go when they are slightly older then......

The only lessons in sewing I got was during secondary school Living Skills class....but those are merely super basic how to get ur sewing machine to sew a super simple ultra plain apron (that's the max), but I know I love sewing since I was 9 or 10!

Yes, the fondant I used is based on Wilton's rolled fondant recipe as well :D

Lemme know after you've tried it ya...

Good day!!!
