These cakes were made for a customer whose daughter is turning 1. She asked that the cakes match the party decor somewhat, so this is what I came up with!
The 1/2 sheet is a chocolate and vanilla layer with vanilla buttercream. The smash is a 5 inch white cake with vanilla buttercream. All of the decorations were made with buttercream as well.
I didn't have any problems with these cakes, things went pretty smoothly and I'm very pleased with how they turned out. The only small problem I had was with cracking issues. Not because the icing is too stiff or dry but because I need to double up all of my boards and didn't get a chance to get a second one this week. The cakes are pretty heavy and when you move them at all, if you aren't holding them just right, you will have cracks. Nothing major, but it still bothered me.
I seriously love baby birthday cakes!
