Last weekend, I posted on Facebook a sneak peek of a cake we made for an adorable little girl turning 1!

Whimsical flower & zebra print 1st birthday cake decorated with orange, pink, and turquoise fondantTa da!

Birthday Cake & Smash CakeMelanie sat down with Cristina, the birthday girl’s Mommy, in December to design this cake.  The bottom tier was spice cake with cream cheese filling, and the top tier was vanilla cake with cookies ‘n cream cream cheese filling (read that again, that’s a lot to take in).  It was Cristina’s idea to combine our cream cheese filling with crushed Oreos for a rich, finger-licking filling!

The cake was decorated with fondant zebra print and whimsical flowers, an edible hot pink bow, and an edible topper.  The smash cake was decorated with pink buttercream and black fondant zebra stripes.

I love when the party planner (Cristina in this case) has a clear vision while she organizes the party and designs the cake.  The cake matched the party decor perfectly!
