Smurf Hat

Love how cyclical trends are! A little friend of ours wanted a smurf birthday … she didn’t want smurfette, she wanted a smurf, but she wanted pinks and flowers and dstuff (she’s 4, and you can’t argue with a 4-year-old! 😉 ). So this is what I came up with! LOVE the carved novelty stuff!

Eric Anthony’s cake (and party) was a hit! Bottom tier: Hot Chocolate cake (cocoa cake) with dark chocolate ganache and chocolate chip cookie dough filling.
