Celebrating My 24th Birthday With a Cake from Wandering Whisk Bakeshop

plan a millennial pink birthday bash this year

My 24th birthday was on February 7th, and I decided to celebrate for the entire month, just because! From dinner dates to seeing a few new movies, it's been one heck of an exciting month. I even attempted (and pretty much failed!) at playing a round of Topgolf the other night. The next Tiger Woods I am not! It was still a lot of fun and the food served at the Topgolf restaurant is delish. I snacked on pulled pork sliders and tater tots while nearly missing every shot I took, ha ha.

As for other events to celebrate my birthday, I had a thought cross my mind a few days prior to my actual birthday. In my head, I knew I wanted to spend time with close friends and family, but I also had an idea to throw a cute and girly birthday party.

Not only did I want to have a get together with pals, but I wanted to document it with one of my favorite Tampa photographers to work with, Sara! She is such a wonderful person and as soon as I pitched the idea of capturing my birthday party, she was as excited as I was to make it happen.

The planning quickly commenced and I started brainstorming ideas for a gorgeous cake from my friend Jen who owns her own bake shop, Wandering Whisk. Not every day do I splurge on a fancy four-layer masterpiece crafted by a skilled baker, but it was my birthday after all. Why not go big?!

I love super girly designs and gave her creative freedom to add some elegant fresh flowers and a watercolor mix of bright pink and orange splattered across the cake complete with a drip effect.

As for the flavor of the cake, I chose a decadent chai latte with creamy buttercream frosting to top it all off! I couldn't wait to pick up the cake before heading to Sara's revamped garage/studio to shoot some adorable photos with my friends in tow. And with some rose to pop!

Cutting into this gorgeous cake was WORK! 

It was layered to perfection and thick to cut through at first, but this action shot proves just how tall the cake turned out. Every layer was worth the struggle to slice it up!

I was so happy to enjoy the evening with my besties. Life consists of so many memories, and I knew I wanted to share this special time with those I love so dearly! 

I have to credit the two talented girls that made this possible, Sara and Jen, for pulling through for me to make my 24th birthday one to remember. I hope this year is my best yet!
