Birthdays are special to celebrate because they allow you to pause and reflect on how far you’ve come. It is a time to appreciate the wisdom that comes with getting a little older.

Repeat the process using the blue icing. We used a different Happy Birthday font on the blue cookie and added the balloons on the center of the cookie. The birthday girl was very happy with her sweet gift.
