Minnie Mouse Cake and a {Giveaway}

Ava's Minnie Mouse CakeTo celebrate Ava’s first birthday, her parents decided to throw her a Minnie Mouse themed birthday party.  All the ideas including this cake design were found by Ava’s mom on Pinterest.  When I arrived at the party to deliver the cake, it matched the decor so well!  What a cute party for such a cute one year old!  Happy birthday Ava!
