In the afternoon more family arrived and we enjoyed…
Vanilla cake with lemon curd filling and homemade buttercream icing. The decorations are Ghirardelli white chocolates that we made…

Cake inspiration from the ocean (obviously) and also Mako Mermaids (show on Netflix) and also from watching those dessert competition shows (especially Zumbo’s Just Desserts!) !
This moon mobile she got has a very Mako Mermaid vibe!!
The birthday fun continued into the evening with a trip to Old Orchard Beach!
