My beloved little niece Kensie turned 1! No longer a baby!! My sis Shelley threw a fun Miga-themed party for her little cutie's birthday at Vancouver's Mount Pleasant Community Centre... and old Coco Cake sole proprietor L.K.Sung had just flown in from Germany about 12 hours before party prep began!

I was in charge of making 2 giant Migas- my sis dropped of a bag containing rolls of different colored felt, so I freestyle drew what I thought was Miga's body shape, complete with her little swirlie-do pompadour hairstyle! My other sis Leanne made a really cute Happy Birthday banner and made little lootbag tags for Kensie.

I also made raspberry jam filled vanilla buttermilk cupcakes with pink vanilla buttercream topped with rosette swirls, and mini versions for the babies! And, for my little cutie Kensie, a 7 inch cutting cake with a mini fondant Miga on top.

The party was a total blast - a frenetic and energy filled 2 hours of open-gym time complete with bouncy castle, gymnastics, basketball... then upstairs to the party room for snacks, a cute Kensie video by Cinemama, and of course cake and cupcakes by Coco Cake, also known as Auntie Lyndsay! :)

Happy Happy Birthday my cute little Kensie! Love you lots! :)
