My little I-guy turned 9 over the weekend. We always try to make the day extra special so we started it off with some yummy sprinkle pancakes. I used our favorite vegan pancake recipe with a tablespoon of sprinkles, topped with a bit of soywhip. Certainly not a typical breakfast around here, which made the birthday boy just totally blown away.
Some beanie bag owls were (frantically) made the night before as party favors–made from recycled sweaters.
Delicious cupcakes were made exactly as requested, “Chocolate cupcakes with vanilla creme filling and strawberry frosting”. The boy is a genius because these were amazing. I used Chloe’s recipe and modified the frosting by adding 3 pureed strawberries. It surprisingly had the perfect strawberry flavoring. So good!
Of course the day wasn’t complete without his three best friends, some laser tag, video games, yo-yo tricks and puppy play.
He went to bed that night tired, full and VERY happy.
