My feisty little niece turns 5 in 2 weeks. She loves to dance and make up silly songs. She loves to play with dolls and dress up in sparkly clothes. She loves to travel and see new things. And she really loves mermaids. And I love her, so I made mermaid cookies to celebrate her big day.
I originally intended to make mermaids only. However, she informed me last month that mermaids are best friends with dolphins and turtles. I am no expert on mermaids, but if she says it is so, it must be true, so I made dolphins and turtles too. I also made crabs (because they are fun to make.) I hope all of her mermaid dreams come true.
Happy 5th birthday!
