A few days later, her friends took her to Blooms, a cupcake restaurant in Phnom Penh that helps train women and gives them a job. For the business part of Talia's homeschool she wanted to actually run a business. She decided to focus on cupcakes and make a website and YouTube channel about making cupcakes from whichever part of the world we happen to be in. Her fellow homeschool friends knew this, so Blooms was a great place to investigate!
As soon as we entered the restaurant we were greeted by a gargantuan decorated styrofoam wedding cake. It was taller than we were! The case was full of fancy cakes decorated in Noah's ark, super heroes, Disney tales and much more. Then we got to the counter and had to choose which cupcake to try. There were many!
Talia chose a rainbow cupcake, dressed in her favorite colors of lime green, purple and blue; it was fitting.
I chose a salted caramel-stuffed chocolate cupcake with cheesecake icing.
I'll just say: one is plenty for one day! They were delicious!
Plus, look at the cute decorations. This one was a jam-filled "doughnut" cupcake.
Besides cupcakes, her friends have her gifts of beginners knitting supplies; something she's been asking for for a long time.
Talia is very blessed with friends and family and she fills our lives in return with love and laughter. Welcome to the double digits, Talia! We love you!
