Kalen's 1st Birthday


For Kalen's 1st Birthday - he had 2 parties and lots of Sweet Things!

I love all the cake ideas you can get and share over the internet.  Clients are either asking me to create something unique or they give me a picture to copy.

The first cake was requested to be similar to Wilton's Amazing Amazon Cake and add in a bit of my flair.  The cakes were alternating layer of chocolate and vanilla butter cake with vanilla swiss meringue buttercream. All the animals are handmade out of sugarpaste. And yes, those are tiny purple butterflies around the cake.

The second party was lots of banana cupcakes and sugar vanilla cookies.  The design for the cupcakes was based off of a great cupcake by Clever Cupcakes in Montreal.  I'm a huge fan of their absolutely creative designs. Make sure you check them out.
