Pottery Painting Birthday Party

IMG_1146e Saturday afternoon after TOPs practice and that little party, Maisie had her pottery painting birthday party with her girlfriends that aren’t on team, TOPs or in school with her. 

IMG_1088eIt was a small and simple party with just cake, chips & salsa, some little candies.

IMG_1090eMaisie asked for a zebra cake with pink Cream Cheese Frosting so that’s exactly what she got.  Who can tell me though, what’s wrong with Maisie’s cake?  No one who attended the party may answer that question.

IMG_1153eHappy Birthday my sweet Maisie Miao Miao!

IMG_1158eI had tried to make the interior look like zebra stripes too but my layers were too thin so it ended up more marbled looking..  Oh well, lesson learned for next time.  Even though it didn’t look exactly as I had wanted, it was still delicious and everyone enjoyed it.  

The cake was a big hit with everyone but my Cream Cheese Frosting recipe was a huge hit so I’ve posted the recipe over on Cook Lisa Cook.  Just click on the picture below of Maisie’s cake and you’ll be taken to the recipe.IMG_1091e

  1. Looks like so much fun! Oh how I wish we could get Maisie, Briana, and Liliana together someday to play... someday! Hope you are all well.

  2. What a fun afternoon! Beautiful birthday girl and beautiful party! Bri had a wonderful time. I can't believe Maisie is six! Time sure flies - sigh...

  3. Oops! Looks like at first Miss Maisie only had 5 candles on her awesome cake even though she was turning 6. Is that it?

    What a great place to celebrate a birthday! wow...3 wonderful parties with 3 great groups of friends! Maisie, you are an awesome friend to many!

    Hi, Lisa. April had a great time at Maisie's party. Could not agree more with you about wishing our little girls could stay little a bit longer...but what a joy watching them grow and develop. What a great idea for a party and what fun we had. Thanks again! Give Maisie a birthday hug from us tomorrow.

    Ilene, Michael and April

  5. What a pretty cake! Looks like the perfect party for a six year old, although in some pictures, there were only five candles. ;)

  6. Happy birthday! Looks like you had a blast. Love the cake! It is 100% Maise. So cool.

  7. It was a great party. Thanks for having us. Chani had a blast. Can't believe that Maisie is 6 already.
