Birthday Cake Cookies + Tasty Tuesday Linky

Yesterday was little man’s 4th birthday. There wasn’t much we could do to beat the fun and excitement he already experienced at his birthday party over the weekend with our extended family.

Nonetheless, we still wanted to make this a special day for him; this included dinner out with our little family and Birthday Cake Cookies made by myself and the little guy. Dinner was great, besides the fact that our boys apparently don’t get out very much. These cookies more than made up for them because “they taste just like birthday cake!” his words, not mine.
