Happy birthday to my little nephew!
His birthday was actually a week or so ago, but we were all away on vacation. I heard he had a cupcake with a candle, and kisses from princesses at Disney World! But still, everyone needs a special cake for their first birthday.
Of course, the lighting and my photography skills don't do the color justice. My "vision" was for a china blue and white decorations. You can see in the first picture that I had to scrape something off- that's where fondant can be quite forgiving, as long as you don't look to closely!
I actually did this whole cake from bake to box in about 5 hours. I had intended originally to bake it on Friday and decorate it on Saturday. Plans went another day though, and with the help of my freezer, I had the cakes cooled and the crumb-coat set in record time.
It was really good!
