Baby Showers and First Birthdays

I design and create alot of cakes for baby showers and first birthdays.  It’s a big exciting moment in life that requires nothing less than a big exciting cake to celebrate.

This 3-tiered cake was for a Cat in the Hat themed 1st birthday party.  From the base to the top of the candle this cake stood almost 2 feet high.  All decorations are edible.  An extra cool detail about this cake was that the middle tier was red velvet cake with cream cheese buttercream filling so that when sliced it mimics the red and white striped hat.

2 shopping bag shaped cakes for a chic/modern mom themed baby shower.  Baby words decorate both bags filled with tissue paper.  The figurine of the mom is holding a cell phone, per request of her sister because she’s always on her cell phone.

The baby boy on the top of this cake was inspired by the mom-to-be’s favorite Anne Geddes baby picture.  For the rest of the cake we took inspiration from her fabric samples both for the colors and other elements such as the rick rack, buttons, ribbon and the baby blanket on the top.
