Gabriel’s Mommy did a great job planning for his big 1st birthday celebration! She knew she wanted lots of sweet treats for their guests to enjoy, so we did a cake, cake pops and cupcakes! Her set up was amazing…gumballs, candy, cake…what more could a kid ask for at his birthday party?!
Happy Birthday, Gabriel!
This cake was designed for Stevie, who celebrated her 2nd birthday yesterday! It doesn’t seem like a whole year has gone by since I made her Winnie the Pooh cupcakes and beehive cake! A lot has changed for Stevie’s family since then…she became a big sister! Her Mommy and Daddy got her a little art table for her birthday, so they planned the party around it. The design was left up to me (which I love!) and I came up with a splatter painted cake, complete with an art easel, painter’s palette and paintbrush…all made by hand from fondant. This is the first Mimi’s cake to travel out of state…Stevie and her family are in Omaha…her Grandma picked it up and made the delivery. 🙂
Happy Birthday, Stevie!
Jack (3) and Charlotte (1) celebrated their birthdays together over the weekend with a Superhero party! Their Mom wanted to be sure that the cake was still somewhat girly, for Charlotte. So I used their invitation as inspiration in my design, using the red and white polka dot tier for Charlotte, and the city lights bottom tier for Jack. I also added the little red bows for a little more “girly” flair. Charlie has a food allergy, so her Mom made her a special cake and I provided a special “SMASH” plaque to dress up her cake.
Happy Birthday, Jack and Charlotte!
Ok, so I literally know nothing about the Minecraft craze…so I definitely took to the internet for some ideas. In the process of making this cake, I kept asking my daughter if it looked like a Minecraft cake yet (she has played it with my nephew) and she kept saying no…she is always brutally honest…Ha! Finally, she said, “Hey, that looks like a creeper.” So that’s when I finally felt a sense of relief…having no clue what a “creeper” was. In the end, she said it looked just like Minecraft, and I was relieved! Both tiers were chocolate cake, filled with vanilla buttercream, iced in chocolate ganache, then covered in fondant…it was heavy!!
Happy Birthday, Hayden!
I was so excited to make these cakes for our friends, Pippa (3) and Alfie (1)! I was told the thing Pippa was most excited about for her party, was her WonderWoman cake…so the pressure was on! 🙂 It turned out great, and so did little Alfie’s Superman cake. As you can tell in the pics below, he enjoyed it!
Happy Birthday, Pippa and Alfie!
Acen’s Mommy has referred to him as her little bug since he was born. So it was a given she would plan a bug themed 1st Birthday party for him! I made the cupcakes for her baby shower shortly after I started Mimi’s…I can’t believe how fast the time has gone, and he’s already a year old! Anyway, here are some pics…I made all the little bugs by hand from fondant. If only they were this cute in real life!
Happy 1st Birthday, Acen!
