When we decided what to do for Cady’s birthday this year we were looking for something a little different. I think I researched pretty much every available option in this entire Metro area. Seriously. We decided to stay close to home at a little cooking school near our house, Chefs 2 B.
Cady loves to help in the kitchen. She loves to pretend to cook. So I figured this would be a great option.
So I made some adorable invites
And that was about it. The cooking school handled everything else.
We arrived and the kids had hats and aprons to decorate
Cady and Kendall
Charlotte, Rylie and Kendall
I’m not sure what Cady is doing in this one, but you can see her really adorable birthday shirt (Too Cute Creations)
Then the chefs split the kids up into two teams. Team Cupcake and Team Icing. Team Cupcake, which consisted of Cady (of course), Logan, Kendall and Kate, were responsible for making the cupcakes. Team Icing, consisting of Charlotte, Rylie, Jaiden and Lilly, were responsible for the cupcake icing. Then all the kids made their own personal pizzas.

Team Icing washing their hands
I thought Cady looked way cute in her special chef’s hat and apron.
Team Cupcake had to make the batter. The first job was to break the eggs into the dry ingredients. Cady did a great job… I think all the shell was picked out 😉
Logan giving it a try
Kate was getting direction on putting the milk into the mix
It was also Cady’s job to add the sour cream to the batter (Yeah I know how that sounds but they turned out pretty good)
I loved this pic because you see Kendall’s and Kate’s little heads peeking over the counter
Kendall, Kate and Logan had to mix the batter up really good.
Then it was time to spoon the batter into the baking cups
After the cupcakes went into the oven the kids got the opportunity to taste the batter (isn’t that the best part?) Cady was a fan. Kendall was not.
I really meant to take more pics of what Team Icing was doing but it was hard to keep up with both groups. But I did catch the best part for them too. They were getting icing squirted in their mouths! Jaiden looks like a little baby bird here.
Then the kids got to roll out the dough for their pizzas
Time to add toppings.
Sweet Logan just waiting his turn like a good boy
After the pizzas went in the oven Team Cupcake peeked in on the cupcakes
Logan was telling Chef Tim that he was hungry and was not super convinced that he could make it until the pizzas were done.
Then it was time for them to make lemonade
The pizzas and cupcakes came out of the oven and it was time to eat.
They decorated the cupcakes
And we sang “Happy Birthday”
We waited to open gifts until we got home. Cady is a blessed little girl. Not for the gifts she got, but for the friends who gave them. Thank you all for coming and celebrating with us!
What was Hadley doing during all this? Chilling with the gifts!
