We celebrated Daniel's second birthday yesterday with a Daniel Tiger party! My parents were so sweet and flew in from Austin to help celebrate. I just realized I didn't get a picture of them with the birthday boy but I will have to get one on Daniel's actual birthday in a few days. I kept the food simple and put way too much effort on the decorations and the cake. Thanks Chere for all the cake guidance and recipes. I will post a rewritten recipe of her chocolate cake soon. I often cheat on birthday cakes and either order cupcakes from the grocery store or do a box cake but I decided to go for a fancier style this time and made from scratch cake. It was (mostly) fun and a learning experience.
