I sure you have all been sitting on the edge of your seats just waiting to see what happened during Cassi’s Big Birthday Adventure in Croatia and Venice. I will let the photos that were posted on facebook explain it, or at least show what happened…..
I still need some clarification on what exactly happened. But we will start with the only boat photo…..
Okay, it’s not an actual photo of the boat ride, I guess there weren’t any taken??? Who knows…..
They got Cassi a cake for her birthday and sang Happy Birthday!!! They must not have known what happens if you sing to her in public…..she starts to cry!
Oh, notice her blue tongue! I have photos to explain that one…..
and a nice framed one as well…..
and she definitely has some explaining to do with this one…..
Same pink panther shirt…same night! Maybe I don’t want to know 🙂
She loved Croatia, thought it was beautiful, but would like to go back again during the summer when it is warmer…..
For a girl raised in Iowa to complain about how cold it was, it must have been really cold!
It looks beautiful in the photos…..
It looks like a birthday party that she will never forget! I am really glad to see that she had such an amazing time with all of her new friends…..
I am even more happy that she made it back to Belgium, in one piece 🙂
As you have probably guessed by the title, this cake is inspired by the Blue Kamikaze Shots they were drinking the night of her party. Now we can all feel like we were there with her, or not!
I am not exactly sure why the glaze separated, notice the white crackling in the glaze? Oh well, it still tastes amazing…..Enjoy!
