Dr Seuss Double Birthday!

Yum
I had so much fun doing this party! I LOVE Dr Seuss, and to re create my favorite childhood books into sweet treats was really fun. My fabulous friend Kendra had a joint birthday party for her son and daughter and really outdid herself with the decorations.
I don't think there is anything better than when a child gets the first glimpse at their cake
For this cutie I did the front cover design from "Oh The Places You'll Go" in a smash cake
The cake was White Butter cake with Vanilla Icing

For the other smash cake I did "The Cat In The Hat" made of Chocolate cake with Raspberry Almond Cream Cheese Icing

For the cupcake tower I did Chocolate cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting and White Butter Cupcakes with Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting. For the toppers I did "Green Eggs and Ham", "One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish" and "Cat In The Hat" figures in fondant and chocolate.
I love the whimsical signs in "Oh the Places You'll Go"
Thing 1 and Thing 2 cupcakes and trees from "Oh the Places You'll Go"
"Green Eggs and Ham"

a couple extra green eggs

Roasted Red Bell Pepper Gazpacho with Garlic Tuna, Bacon and Avocado

Have you ever tried gazpacho before? It's one of my favorite things to make when the days start to get hotter especially when those...
