She’s 2. My girl is TWO! I still am not sure how this came to be but the time is here. And as I cry writing this, I am sad that she’s getting older but I am also crying because I am so happy that I was blessed to be this little girl’s mom. I love her beyond words. I waited so long for her and I truly believe God was just molding my special girl to be perfect for her dad and me. She seriously makes each and every day fun. She’s such an awesome kid!
We celebrated her birthday with a gift and some cake. I didn’t want a traditional cake but wanted to incorporate what seems like her favorite food; STRAWBERRIES. So, I made her a strawberry and cream poke struesel cake. This cake was DELICIOUS and so creamy. It was just the perfect cake for my little girl.
We gave her a piece of cake and she said “thank you much”. That’s her new saying.
For the cake, I just used a basic white boxed cake mix. When the cake came out of the oven, I allowed for it to cool then using the end of a wooden spoon or straw, poked holes into the cake. I refrigerated the cake for about 4 hours then topped with whipped cream and folded in small chunks of fresh strawberries and then added more strawberries on top. I put in the refrigerator and let it sit overnight then the next morning added a struesel topping.
Chase is my reason that I cook with help. She’s my reason why the kitchen is messier when she’s in there. She’s my reason why sometimes the food has a missing bite or two. But she’s my reason why I love being a Mom.
Happy Birthday sweet girl! We are celebrating with our family this weekend and going bowling. Yay!
