Rubber Ducky Bubble Bath Cake

Here’s a fun cake we made for a little girl turning 1!  Most kids carry around their favorite blanket or teddy bear, but not Lulu!  She carries around her favorite rubber ducky!  So we designed her birthday cake around it and even topped it with a new rubber ducky for bathtime.

Lulu's rubber ducky birthday cake!

The bottom tier was iced in blue buttercream and accented with darker blue and yellow polka dots.  The top tier was decorated with fondant “wooden” planks to make a wooden bathtub.  And the whole cake was covered with buttercream “bubbles.”  The rubber ducky topper is an actual rubber ducky that Lulu was able to play with when the party was over and the cake was eaten.

Pink & Black Minnie Mouse Birthday Cake

Ok, it’s official (…well, not really).  The most popular theme for a 1st birthday party in 2012 is Mickey or Minnie Mouse!  And while it’s easy to recreate a design over and over, we also love when people bring us a new design to try!

Last weekend, we made TWO Minnie Mouse cakes!  The first one was based on the cake with the edible convertible and Minnie Mouse topper, but they wanted to replace the car with a set of ears and a bow.  Done!

A sweet Minnie Mouse-themed 1st birthday cake iced with buttercream and decorated with fondant stripes, polka dots, and bows.The second was a totally new design to us.  A pink & black cake with the same ears and bow topper.  Super cute!  Pink & black Minnie Mouse birthday cake decorated with fondant.Which one is your favorite???

Mikaela’s 1st Birthday Party!

We’ve been a little quiet on the blog lately because September and October are big months for us!  But right in the middle of September, Mel’s baby girl turned 1 so we have to share a few photos.

We went with a rainbow themed party because color makes Mel happy, and Mikaela isn’t old enough to express any opinions yet. Although, we’re pretty sure she enjoyed herself. *wink*

Here’s the cake table set-up with Mikaela’s personalized birthday banner, cookie favors, goodie bags, and of course the cake!

AJ’s Baseball-Themed 1st Birthday Party

Another friend of my daughter’s turned 1 this weekend!  AJ’s parents both coach baseball and softball so AJ has spent much of his young life on the field.  And the kid loves to throw! He throws anything and everything.  He even pretends to throw when there’s nothing around for him to get his hands on.  And he’s got a good arm too!

Anyway, it was only fitting that they throw him a baseball-themed 1st birthday party!All of AJ's goodies for his party - his baseball-themed cake, smash cake, and cookie favors!

Milk Mustache 1st Birthday Party

Having a baby is great.  Aside from all the snuggles, kisses, giggles, and high-fives I get to enjoy each day, there are other great bonuses too.  Like getting to go to 1st birthday parties!  Between now and September, I figure Mikaela will go to about 10 first birthday parties!

Perhaps she’s popular!  Or perhaps her Mommy just makes the cakes…but who cares?!  First birthday parties are great!  And they’re all so different – so if you’re planning one, keep an eye on this blog for some great ideas.

I love the theme of Declan’s party – Milk Mustache!  How cute!?

We made cupcakes with little black mustaches and Declan’s smash cake was a cow!
