1st Birthday Cake: Sesame Street Cake

I sure love making Sesame Street themed cakes!  Here's a simple and fun design for a 1st birthday cake.
My daughter's 2nd birthday is a couple months away and Cookie Monster will be the main theme of the dessert table.  I'm so excited and found so many great ideas on Pinterest.

2nd Birthday Cake: Bubble Guppies Cake

There are so many different TV shows for kids out there... have you heard of the Bubble Guppies?  A cute little show that my daughter also loves, but calls it "Buggies".  And she recognized the characters so I knew it was toddler approved.
The cake was strawberry vanilla cake filled with strawberry preserves and vanilla swiss meringue buttercream.  I was able to use some of the design techniques that I learned from the Cakelava Clownfish cake design.

5th Birthday Cake: Transformers Cake

I say this every year, but one of my favorite things is to make a birthday cake for my wonderful nephew.  Here's a review of his past birthdays!
This year, Maseo turned 5 and he loves Transformers.  The cake was 6-layers of zesty lemon cake with vanilla swiss meringue buttercream.  He even saved all the handmade sugarpaste decorations.

Monkey Cake

It's been over a month since I last posted.  I took a bit of a cake break and slowly getting back into things.  Finally getting around to posting this fun monkey cake I made for the March Issue of Today's Parent Magazine.
Monkey's are always very popular with the little ones because they are such monkey's themselves :-)  Hope everyone is happy, healthy and enjoying the springtime!
