This week Teacup turned 2! It’s so hard to believe that my baby isn’t a baby anymore, but 2?! What a fun age. This year I asked Teacup what she’d like to have for her birthday by showing her pictures of several food and decor ideas. Her choice–Pancakes and Butterflies! Or as we nicknamed it–the Butterfly Breakfast Bar.
The day before the party I used this birthday pancake recipe to create the pancakes and placed them in a 9×12 baking dish to warm up in the oven the next day before serving. I also made some miniature quiche cupcakes using my Impossible Quiche recipe (I’ll be sharing this recipe soon, I promise; it’s so easy) and even my brother-in-law who was previously opposed to quiche liked it. Finally, we dipped the rim of our party cups in some melted white chocolate and sprinkles for that added party flair. Talk about delish!
The day of the party, all we had to do was warm the quiche and the pancakes in the oven for a bit and serve. It made for a very easy party day.
So what condiments did we have on our pancake bar?
Well I must first begin that my family all shared in bringing different items so we had quite a smorgesboard. Everyone really seemed to enjoy it too! Here’s what ended up at our table:
- Sliced bananas
- Sliced peaches
- Sliced strawberries
- Chocolate chips
- Muschino cherries
- Chopped pecans
- Various kinds of sprinkles
- Canned whipped cream
- Maple syrup
- Spreadable honey
- Strawberry syrup
- Homemade butter pecan syrup
And Teacup’s finished product?
Oh how shocked Teacup’s face was when we put a candle on top of her pancake, lit it, and sang “Happy Birthday” to her. It was precious. And the pancakes? I don’t know which she liked better, the cakes or the condiments. Either way, both were a yummy mess and she enjoyed having leftovers for many days afterwards.
And Just Cause I Can’t Help But Share…
Happy Birthday Teacup! I Love You!
