1st Birthday Cakes

1st birthday cakes

1st birthday cakes are special and we often make big family parties to celebrate.

I remember my daughter's and her first experience eating cake. The cake was everywhere - her hair, her face, her high chair. But, that was her first taste of sweets and boy, did she love it! Here are some cakes to celebrate the special moment.

Rylee's 1st Birthday Cake

Rylee's first birthday cakeAs this was my very first attempt at ever decorating a cake..I kept it simple. I bought 2 ready made sponges. I layered them and filled with whipped cream.

Made the butter icing and coloured with blue food colouring. Cut the cake in the shape of the one and decorated with coloured cachous and stars. The blanket was rolled fondant and a little yellow colouring and but with a play dough cutter.
