When my friend Ivy told me that her daughter was having a "Pet Shop Birthday" I immediately thought of The littlest pet shop toys. But, no, this was going to be an "adopt a pet party" Each guest would adopt a furry little stuffed pet. So I started to think about what a cute little six year old would find fabulous when it comes to cake, besides the frosting! My grand daughter loves her little princess castle and the tiny little dolls, furniture and animals too, so I got the idea to make Oak her own little fairytale pet shop. Because, lets be honest, if I was six, I would have a pet shop like no other pet shop. The animals would be free to roam around, roll in the grass, enjoy the sunshine. So, I gave Oak a little dream, and for a few hours, I got to be there too, I sort of got lost in the details, and the tiny little modeling chocolate animals.
My grand daughter, Promise helped to make all the tiny little flowers, she's learning young, and is very talented already. But, at seven years old, she already has her own plans...to be a Pediatrician, an American Idol, ballerina, we'll see, as long as she's happy, and we can bake together every now and then.
