Strawberry Shortcake

This is Strawberry Shortcake!  At least this is what she looked like when I was a kid.
Aww, isn't she cute? 
Does it bring you back a few years? (Let's not discuss how many...ahem) 

As time marches on, so does Strawberry Shortcake!  I love that she is spanning generations and all little girls still have the chance to play with a "scented" doll. 
Remember that smell?

Look how her fashion sense has updated, but still a bonnet and cute short curly hair.

Here is the newest evolution of Strawberry Shortcake! 
She's let her hair grow and it seems to be more of a beret than a bonnet upon her locks!

No matter her look, she is still a great subject to have when making a party theme choice!

So let's see what we need at the party???

How about some cookie favors?  I took inspiration from one of my favorite cookiers (Sweet Sugar Belle) and the strawberries found on the party plates

Cupcakes are always the FUN and easy way to serve all the kids!

But of course you need a cake to put candles in and sing the Happy Birthday song to!

I made some buttercream vines with flowers and some miniature fondant strawberries for the sides of the cake.

Thanks for hanging around so long with us Strawberry Shortcake!
And Happy Birthday Kaitlyn Marie!
