For her birthday, Julia wanted to try making homemade potato gnocchi. Fail. It was all my fault. We'll try again someday soon. In the meantime, I ran back to the store for frozen.
San Marzano tomatoes and fresh basil.
Big plate of antipasto.

We read Cake Wrecks everyday, so Julia looked for the wreckiest cake she could find. Actually, this cake is pretty cute. His teeth are crooked, and he's blue, which is her favorite color!

With the candles, he started looking like a porcupine. The white candle between his eyes was a nod to her brother's favorite creature, the narwhal! As a musician and singer, she has plenty of lung capacity to blow out 17 candles.

Happy Birthday, Julia! It's going to be an awesome year!
