1St Birthday

1St Birthday on Cake Central

This is a picture of my first decorated cake! It was inspired by the many amazing cakes here on CC. It was for my daughter's 1st Birthday (last year). The bottom is chocolate with whipped chocolate ganache filling, the top is lemon cake with lemon buttercream filling. I used the paper towel method to smooth out the buttercream and then made a lot of butterflies, lady bugs, snails, bees and flowers out of fondant to decorate the cake. The finishing touch was a flower fairy that I spent a lot of time on just to have her fall off the counter and smash (on the morning of the party!). Luckily I had made a second one for fun, not as detailed, and ended up using her. I had a lot of fun making this and it was all possible with the ideas and help I found here on CC! Thanks everyone! I am now officially addicted to making and decorating my own cakes!
