The Gherkin turned three, surrounded by all her grandparents, a big party and two birthday cakes. We had an year's worth of milestones and accomplishments to celebrate - greater independence, expanded vocabulary and new friends. For the party at home, the Boy wanted a Pineapple Upside Down cake. So Pineapple Upside Down Cake it was.
For the big party, the Gherkin wanted a white cake with pink and purple flowers. This was settled after perusing the cake aisles of several grocery stores during the previous month. She had a sudden change of heart on the night before and wanted a rainbow cake instead...but it was too late. The white cake with pink and purple flowers was already ordered and so a white cake with pink and purple flowers it was.
