Sofia is 3!



Yep, she's 3. We had a "birthday brunch" for Sofia today. Fritatas, challah (pretty multicultural breakfast, actually), fruit and stuff. Here's Sofia and her friend Pippa enjoying some juice:



Of course, there was cake as well - Sofia had requested a "rainbow cake", and this is what I came up with:



Sofia got to lick one of the candles:



And here she is enjoying (?) the cake itself...



I got to sneak her aside for a daddy/daughter self-portrait a few minutes later:



Here's a couple of present-opening pics:





This rubbery "piggy bank" had to be the hit gift - it oinked when you put a coin in it, and the girls filled it up, then dumped it out over and over again...



And of course, there was some outside playing time after:



All in all, a pretty fun birthday - thanks to everyone involved...

That's quite the fancy cake! How many pieces did it take to make it the rainbow shape? And I take it you colored your own frosting, of course- This must have taken some time! It's beautiful~ :)

Just one piece for the rainbow - it's a half circle, I just made one big 14" cake,, cut a circle out of the middle (that became the sun) and still have one rainbow shape left. Not sure what to do with that... Frosting was kind of a pain, but not too bad, plus it was fun.

Didn't you have a rainbow shaped/colored birthday cake once? At a mini-golf course by Hwy 10 in the North Twin Cities? Must check the photo record.
