Where the fairies live

And it's got a door, too. (Of course it does, how else would they get in?)
.
The party was a smashing success, the birthday girl was thrilled, but I'm utterly shattered and still have a late night conference call with California to get through so the cake will have to do it for tonight. I'm not even looking at the actual party photos until tomorrow. (Excuse the shiny flash reflection, all the natural lighting shots came out strangely discolored. I think all the beige in my kitchen was throwing off the white balance or something but I was too busy to take the time to sort it out.)

Have a great rest of the day everyone. I'll be by to visit tomorrow.

Robin, great "Windows" post but I'm worried why you're "shattered." I hope things are all right...

Awesome cake! And I know Miss Mouse must've loved it.

Get a power nap, some strong coffee, and a Tranzene and you'll be sound as a shekel. Or something. I hope. Like Mary, I hope you don't mean "shattered" in ... some of the ways you could mean it.

Scribbit said...

Okay that is amazingly cute--I didn't know you were such a master!

Robin said...

Not to worry, I'm simply exhausted from being run off of my feet from 6:30 in the morning until now - 11:30pm (even with a professional entertainer hosting a party for forty (yes, 40) kindergarteners is a huge amount of work, and physical work too given the utterly revolting state I found the party room in yesterday evening), but now I've just finished my conference call and plan a nice relaxing soak in the jacuzzi and then off to bed :).

What a lovely and very creative cake. And where did you find those cute little fairies? Such a special treat for the birthday girl.

I do hope your life calms down real soon!

Amazing cake! We're actually celebrating my youngest's birthday tomorrow afternoon - but we've only invited 20 girls, not 40 *gasp* Thanks for making me feel like I got off easy!

Perfect home for fairies! I hope you didn't eat it. I mean, where would the fairies go if you ate their house?

I want one of those for my birthday.

Maria Berg said...

Perfect! Good on you and 40 kids!!! It is hard doing a party for so many kids, last year I had 20 and this year I told my dotter only to invite the girls so 10 this year.

And I hope you did have a good time in the jacuzzi after so long work, have a nice weekend,
