The scarf didn’t stay on for long, but the eating of the cake lasted a pretty long time and was enjoyed by all….

The Cat Cake Recipe

Lucy’s mom, my resourceful daughter who loves to bake, found this edible and successful (all cats kept it down hours after party time) recipe at the blog called yyhh.org and the recipe link is here.  muffin tinThe tuna cake usually calls for a nice piece of shrimp as a topping, but since my girl is allergic to shellfish, I didn’t let her crown it with shrimp and Lucy didn’t mind at all.  She really loved the chunks of tuna that are baked in the cool cat cake!

So as we close this birthday bash down, I’ll end with showing you my favorite picture from Lucy’s big day last year when she seemed to be waiting by her party swagg patiently for her Mom to come home from school….
