I had so much fun with this order for little Mira’s first birthday celebration!
The cake has a vanilla bottom tier and a chocolate top tier, both covered with pink sugar paste. The top tier has baby’s name on the front with little gold dragees as accent, and a brown sugar paste bow.
The bottom tier is quilted and the little brown pearls were piped on with royal icing.
The cake topper is a sugar paste teddy wearing pearls and a bow, holding a pink #1.
There were chocolate cupcakes in gold paper cups and vanilla cupcakes in pink paper cups, decorated with handmade sugar paste cupcakes toppers teddybear faces – with bows and pearls.
There were also teddy-shaped cookies, decorated in pink, brown and white royal icing!
Mira’s mommy had a pink and brown tulle tutu made to go around the base of the cake, and the birthday girl had a matching tutu to wear for her party! 🙂 I got this picture from Nadine of the cake with its tutu!
This is a chocolate cake made to look like a tree stump, decorated with sugar paste toadstools, acorns, stones, vines, flowers, and hand made sugar paste animal friends – a fox, bird, bunny, owl, and raccoon.
The vanilla cupcakes in brown paper cups were topped with white vanilla buttercream, and decorated with handmade sugar paste owls in yellow, pink, orange, and mint green.
Here are the finished toadstools, leaves, and flowers, made in preparation for finishing the cake decoration and dried before being put on the cake.
I loved doing this two-tiered cake with its gorgeous red, grey, light blue, and white colour scheme! Its very striking!
The bottom tier is a vanilla and chocolate marble cake, filled with chocolate buttercream, covered in light blue sugar paste with a light grey chevron pattern, and the board is decorated with sugar paste baby blocks.
The top tier is vanilla cake with a lemon buttercream, covered in white sugar paste and decorated sugar paste dots in red, light grey, and light blue.
The little baby sneakers on the cake topper are hand made, by me, in sugar paste and they have their own little board so they can be taken off the cake.
There were also chocolate cupcakes with light blue vanilla buttercream, and strawberry cheesecake cupcakes in red paper cups, with a strawberry cream cheese icing.
