Birthday Sweets

Some of you may already  know this, but...My two girls share birthdays with the Christmas holiday. One birthday is on December 24th, and the other is on December 25th. As you might think, it's pretty tough to celebrate their birthdays! I thought I'd share their birthday sweets with you. No matter what, we always have special birthday sweets for their special days. And they are never holiday themed.

My oldest turned 17, and we had cheesecake (yes, it was goooood stuff).

My youngest turned 3-years-old on Christmas Day, and she (along with big sis) chose a Hello Kitty theme at the last minute. We made Hello Kitty cupcakes, with pink & purple swirled frosting. 

Final touches included pink and purple sprinkles (all of my kids love sprinkles on anything they can add sprinkles to) and Hello Kitty cupcake toppers.

Big Sis didn't get to blow any candles out on her cheesecake, so we sang and had both girls blow candles on the cupcakes. Birthday sweets are always awesome!

I usually post something about our Christmas holiday celebration, but I wanted to share something a little different this time. We have family staying with us for the whole week, so I definitely do have some great holiday moments to share (soon). =0) Besides, last year, it took me three whole months to post about my girls and their birthday cupcakes. I didn't want to take that long to share them this time. 

What is your favorite birthday sweet treat?

Those cupcakes are so cute! The holidays must be doubly big in your house with the birthdays. As you know it was my birthday on Dec 24th as well :) I had a great time and I hope your kids did as well. My sister made me cupcakes too! You can see them in my birthday post.

Absolutely busy time of year for you but extra special too. Yummy pretty cupcakes but, like your older daughter, I'm in love with cheesecake. Have a great weekend!

Happy belated birthday to both of your daughters! How wonderful it is that you make sure to celebrate Christmas separately to their birthdays. My birthday is on the 28th and often gets left on the backburner because of the Christmas festivities. Your daughters are very lucky and you are obviously a lovely caring mum. :) Take care x
