Kelli-Lou, Happy Birthday To You!






It's a true joy in my Coco Cakey heart when I get to make some special delights for the wonderful people in my life! Kelli-Lou is the awesome mom to my dear friend Sharon and her two sisters Kim and Jillian... the three of 'em are ahhhdorable in every way and they remind me of me and my two sisters and how much we love each other and like hanging out while still getting annoyed with each other sometimes but we're sisters so that's that.

Kelli hit the big 'n beautiful 60 this past weekend and Sharon asked me to make some pretty floral cupcakes for her mum! I also found this awesome vintage wrapping paper in the bottom of my craft paper box (I forgot I bought it off Ebay a few years ago when I had what I like to call my "Ebay problem") so I made some darn-tootin'-cute flags out of it! Sharon and her lovely sisters are all vegan, so the cupcakes were deliciously vegan! Egg and dairy free! I made vanilla cupcakes with vanilla buttercream in two styles: yellow roses and pink rosettes!

I was told there was a wicked young people vs. older people Charades game played at the party, as well as birthday cheer, laughs galore and plenty of glasses of wine down the hatch! Sounds like a truly fun birthday bash.

Happy happy birthday dear Kelli!

Great post! I’m looking to make some changes in my own eating habits, so I appreciate your insight a lot! Thank you. I recently stumbled upon this blog like I did yours and I thought your readers may appreciate it: http://burisonthecouch.wordpress.com/2010/11/04/food-for-thought/

I’ve started to look for their stuff more regularly and I think I’m going to add your blog to my list as well. Thanks for the post!
