How time flies so quickly, my little girl just turned 5 years old last November 6. We just had simple celebrations at school and home. But even though our celebrations were really simple, I could not stop myself thinking of a nice theme for her birthday.

For this year’s theme, I chose Maleficent, but I decided to go for the cartoon one to make it a little charming despite of her villain image. I designed the invitation, cake toppers and her T-shirts.

I decided to order cupcakes instead of a fondant cake or typical birthday cake for a change. I learned that the aunt of my friend is now into baking and accepting orders for customized cakes. I asked her to bake 24 pieces of purple cupcakes ala Maleficent. Each cupcake without a topper cost 35 pesos, and it tastes good with just enough sweetness. I also paid 300 for the cupcake tower, but it is reusable.

We prepared typical Pinoy’s party food like pansit bihon, sweet spaghetti, puto, lumpiang shanghai among others.Andi at 5

We love to celebrate life and we are very grateful to God for giving her another year. Until her next birthday!
