Happy Birthday K!

A few photos from K's postponed birthday party.  (We have a couple of fevers and some pink eye to thank for the altered date.)
Dino cake as requested.
Cupcakes iced with the leftover cake icing.  There were 2 orange, 2 yellow, 7 white and 5 pink.
Pretty pink rose.  I don't think it's been eaten yet.  Please excuse me for a minute....
 As the icing was the biggest hit of the night, I thought I should share the recipe.  This is for you ck!

Taken from How To Be A Domestic Goddess by Nigella Lawson (I heart her. That is all.)

1 1lb butter
1 1kg bag of icing sugar (Sieved if you have the patience.  I don't.)
2 t vanilla extract
3 T milk

Using a stand mixer (with the paddle attachment) or a hand mixer cream the butter.  Slowly add icing sugar to butter  to blend.  Add vanilla and milk.  Continue to blend until smooth.

(This is actually 1.5 times the original recipe but the measurements are easier to remember and it never hurts to have extra icing lying around.  It's a well documented fact.  Really.)
