I tried to tell myself that the reason I was making two cakes was because her birthday and her party were almost two weeks apart. And because you only turn 1 once...but in reality, I just wanted to make two cakes!
This was the cake I made for her the day she turned one.
|Happy 1st Birthday!|
I wanted the cake to have rustic/vintage kind of feel to it.
I made a 6 inch, double layer cake filled with pastry cream and decorated with pale pink buttercream and white buttercream rosettes and a shell border.
I made a little "ONE" banner as well, because I thought it was cute and added to the rustic-ness of the cake. It also added a little hipster charm to it - because let's be honest, our kids are little hipsters.
