For her birthday celebration, we had a simple dinner together with our immediate family members last night.
I prepared 2 items - birthday cake and jelly.
Erin's birthday cake - Japanese Strawberry Shortcake
Just like for Elyssa's cake, plenty of drama involved and halfway thru, I was thinking why didn't I just BUY a cake instead of having self-inflicted stress ;-)
3-coloured jelly with fruits
Pretty simple to prepare
I also made Erin's name in jelly for the cake, but forgot to use it.

Princess treatment for the birthday girl!
Can spot hubby in the pool?
We went earlier to have a quick swim before dinner. Elyssa had a good time swimming with her cousins. No photos of that since I was in the pool with them. :)

Some of the food
Poor Sis and SIL got very lost so the food got cold. Blame the GPS!

Birthday Song and Cake Cutting Time
Close Up Shot of the Cake since I slaved for hours over this ;)
Yes, very uneven. Yes, I was aiming for the "rustic look". He hee.
Will I bake again for the girls? Yes, despite my comment on the first photo.
