1st Birthday Cake

This is definitely one of my favourite cakes of 2011 so far.  The elevated tier is one of the most popular cake inquiries that I received. 

Here is the first version I posted,  the next one with a cute giraffe on top, a Baby Einstein version,  with animals and ladybugs and also inspired this cake for Gail Vaz Oxlade of the TV show Til Debt Do Us Part.   I have also made them with Sesame Street chracters and BabyTV Peek-a-boo characters - I will be sure to post!
I love how this cake turned out and so happy with the lion cake topper.  The top tier was chocolate sour cream cake and bottom tier was vanilla butter cake.
