Actually, these ARE birthday cake. Well, birthday parfait anyway. Fudge brownie, french vanilla icecream, a gummie worm, crushed Oreo cookies, and a mint sprig from the garden make a perfect garden party parfait. They were yummy, included all of the necessary birthday cake things (like cake and icecream) and were just a heck of a lot of fun.
Food table... there was this and chicken, garden burgers and hamburgers from the grill. Simple, but wonderful backyard food. The punch is raspberry lemonade with 7-up, mint leaves and frozen blueberries. Birthday kids "cakes"... A large star brownie, topped with a scoop of icecream, a mint sprig, an Oreo and the oh so necessary candle. Birthday girl, swinging with her friends. Alex laughing and having a great time with his friends.
