Baby's 1st Birthday

Makaella celebrated her 1st Birthday today! 

For her cake I made a 6" vanilla cake and frosted it with vanilla buttercream.   As I boxed it up, the fondant  "1" broke so I had to improvise and stick a candle in it (sorry no pictures, I was running short on time).   I made a bigger cake for guests along with some cupcakes.  The cupcakes were topped with fondant owls, sprinkles, pink daisies & royal icing toppers with her initial on it.  The more I do the ruffle frosting the more I love it.  It is so easy!!

Baby's personal cake..before the 1 broke

sprinkles..aren't the colors great?

The body was made with a Wilton circle cutter that I bent to make an oval
then I cut out another oval and used a star to cut out the center..and attached it to the bottom layer. I used royal icing to make the ears, eyes, nose and feet.  I used Americolor markers to to the black on the eyes. 

The pink topper was made with royal icing.  2 step process.  First make your circle. Let it dry overnight. Next day add the letter & top with disco dust

Fondant daisy.. Wilton daisy cutters, Center made with JEM daisy centers
