One of our favorite birthday traditions? Homemade ice cream. So, what better theme for Eve’s July birthday than ice cream? Of course, we made our favorite homemade ice cream, with just a few drops of lemon extract added to the recipe. Yum!
We had just a simple gathering at Grandma and Grandmpa’s. We decorated using the decorations we invested in for her first birthday: vintage bunting, photo centerpieces, and a homemade chair cover.
I whipped up a batch of plain ol’ boxed mix cupcakes, and decorated them using my Pampered Chef Decorator Bottle Set, sprinkles, mini chocolate chips and maraschino cherries. For the main cake, I used three of the cupcake “scoops” of ice cream because it was her third birthday. The kids absolutely loved these!
