Shout out to anyone who is a nanny/full time babysitter. This post is for you…. kinda. A few years ago I left the world of social media and content management to work with kids. It was a total world shift for me and while I’ve been doing some side projects in the digital space I haven’t really looked back. There are days when I’m not sure how my bills will get paid and I long for the days of a regular paycheck, or when one of my kiddos is on their third tantrum of the day because sugar is not a food group but overall, I really enjoy it. There is something magical about it. And if I’m being real here, I think kids are easier than dealing with adults sometimes. Kids’ only ulterior motive is to get out of bedtime or to get an extra cookie. Adults? So much more drama.
So 3 years ago, I left the world of “real people jobs” and started nannying and this week, my first little is turning 4! I’m a little teary eyed thinking about it. Okay, so my main goal as kiddos get older is that I end up being the cool Aunt. You know what I’m talking about. The one that they can go to for things they may not be able to tell mom or dad about. The one that is still single and enjoying life and they basically stalk my instagram feed (it’s a thing, I promise). Since I’m not related to the kiddos it’s a bit strange but I absolutely love getting to see them grow up.
So for P’s party her mom is basically amazing and asked me to make the cake for her birthday party. Of course I said yes! The theme was a Royal Tea Party and for real you guys, it was GORGEOUS! I didn’t take a bunch of photos because I’m a dolt and was too busy waving a bubble wand but… I can tell you how I made the Tea Party Cake!!!
A Pinterest Perfect Tea Party Cake
** Note: The cake is topped with delicious meringue cookies! I got the recipe from ShugarySweets and they turned out beautifully. I recommend making these at least a day in advance (they take a really long time to cook) on a day that has very low humidity.
