Look Whoo's Turning 1!!

My little niece Alexis turned 1 this past weekend! My sister did her birthday decorations in the theme "Look whoo's turning 1". I made her cakes around that theme!
On the left is the main cake - all chocolate with a chocolate cream filling and the left is the smash cake for Alexis! The invitation is in the back.The smash cake with the invite! I made the eyes, beak and bow out of chocolate - easy to eat and melts in the mouth for no choking!Here is the owl topper I made out of fondant for the cake!I brush painted the bottom tier with pink food coloring to make it a soft pink and used cute little edible pearls for the middles of the flowers!Happy Birthday Alexis! Your aunt Stephanie loves you!!And...did she love it????Heck yeah she did! :)

Kitty Cake

I made a cake this past weekend for a little girl who was turning 7! Her best friend is her cat Joey and her mom wanted the cat as part of the cake - along with pink!

This is what I came up with!I made the bottom tier a chocolate cake with OREO cream filling and the top tier was a vanilla cake with rasberry cream filling.
All decorations were made out of fondant.
The paw prints were made with food coloring and a stamp that I bought just for this cake! It was my first time using a stamp on a cake and I think it turned out cute! When the little girl Andee walked in to pick up the cake, she looked at the cake, a big smile crossed her face and she said "It's Joey!" It made my day! She was thrilled with the cake!

Happy Birthday Andee!
