Isabella Marion Hilda Edlinger, born May 24th 2000 in Las Vegas. Which makes her 12 today.
A birthday sans friends or giant party at the swimming pool. Just us, Oma, Opa and her cousin Jerry.
But a giant chocolate cake themed after her favorite book of the moment, The Hunger Games. Which in my eyes makes up for everything.
Victoria made a ganache and swiss meringue tower of a cake with a Mocking jay template. Apparently that bird has something to do with fire ( I did not read the book or see the movie), so we got a giant sparkler to impress Isabella. I think Oma was worried about the house burning down, that sparkler went up past the light fixture...
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ISABELLA.
THE BIRTHDAY GIRL
GUESS WHICH BOOK/MOVIE?
