Birthday Cake Wishes and Swimming Pool Dreams

IMG_0814This summer we threw a surprise birthday pool party for my friend Katie’s awesome little sister Niamh (pronounced ‘Neeve’ — it’s Irish and beautiful, get used to it). It was a blast, even if it did make me feel old because these 10-year-olds are way hipper than I have ever been.

To celebrate, I made a massive and decadent chocolate layer cake complete with a handmade Happy Birthday flag banner. We served it with little plastic cups of vanilla ice cream — the perfect poolside treat!
