I had a grand golden birthday celebration yesterday. It was more low key because I’m not a wild pup anymore, but it was me and it was fun. I also got to go to my nose work class which I love!
One of my biggest worries was my cake. Mom and I picked out party supplies I liked so that was in order, but what would my sisters do for a cake since they don’t really bake? Fortunately, they know I absolutely love pumpkin and they managed to order a pumpkin cake mix for me! Being sisters of a canine Julia Childs put a lot of pressure on them to do well!
The two of them divided up the work with Bailie doing the mixing of the cake and Madison putting the cupcake liners in the pan. There were some issues with counting the liners as Madison is still learning her numbers but Bailie helped her get it right.
One thing they did learn from me is to taste your batter before baking it. I think I’m lucky there were any cupcakes as they sure went to town on the batter!
This fashion hound wanted to go all out on the glam factor! I chose gold glitter hats, sun glasses, gold polka dot plates, and a tiara to add to my gold glitter hat and my pretty boa! Everything a girl needs for a golden birthday celebration! Mom says we look like three aliens, I say we look like a group of fashion hounds. What do you think?
The cupcakes smelled fabulous. I elected to get started eating before anyone decided to drool. Sometimes Bailie will drool if she has to wait too long to eat.
Hard to believe, but the cupcakes were heavenly! We all absolutely loved them. I think our photos speak volumes about the taste!
Madison took her sweet time eating her cupcake, but she did eventually finish it. She might be the slowest eating dog on the planet earth! Meanwhile, Bailie and I were thinking a second cupcake would be mighty nice!
Of course, little Madison had to try to get on Bailie’s nerves by making a silly comment about her party hat. You know she is young because she obviously forgot she was wearing the very same hat, LOL!
I opened up my gifts first thing in the morning. Waiting is something I’m not real good at! You know, Bailie gave me her spot in the elements trial Sunday which is like the best gift ever! Mom bought me a case of my favorite Alpine Rabbit Stew. Silly Madison got me this squirrel photo holder, not sure what she was thinking but she found it pretty funny! It is cute. My Gramma found me the perfect card, Fashion Diva, that is totally me! What great presents for turning eleven! Thank you to everyone for all the pawsome birthday wishes too! Time to start paw padding it forward to twelve!
