Cake and cookies

On Monday it was a day of baking around our house. In the morning Abby asked what we were doing and when I told her baking cookies and a cake she asked "because it's my birthday" in such an excited voice. 

I started with making the cookie dough so it could chill in the fridge for a while. I used this recipe and it's ever so tasty. Then in the afternoon I rolled them out cut out lots and lots of circles (both little - for the cake and sibling gift bags, and big for the individual cookies for the table and favor buckets) I then made lots of icing for piping and the four different colors I chose to ice the cookies in. 
While the cookie dough was chilling I made the cake. I used this recipe for the cake and this {amazing!] butter cream for the frosting. I'm in love with the butter cream frosting - oh so tasty and totally the reason I am hitting the gym hard again today. The cake was good not as moist as box cakes but it tasted pretty good though it might could have used a little more flavor according to Beau. 

My inspiration came from here. I just loved the polka dots and it went well with the bright colors of the buckets that I was using as favors. Baking too all day with the breaks I took with little ones underfoot - especially Micah who doesn't particularly like it when I spend a lot of time in the kitchen. Everything turned out well though in my opinion. I'm no professional but with practice my decorating skills are getting better!
