Thomas The Train 1st Birthday Cake

It is really amazing how fast time flies. My friends son just turned 1 and they needed the perfect cake to celebrate the occassion.

I always tell my friends and family when picking out a cake design it's usually easier when you have a theme. The theme for this big boys birthday was Thomas the Train.

After looking at a few different photos and a few critiquing remarks this was the design that was chosen.
The top layer of this two tiered cake was chocolate with vanilla filling and the bottom was vanilla with vanilla filling.

All the fondant decorations are hand made, Thomas took sometime for me to get right lol.... a lot of L.O.V.E went into this cake.
 I hope Carter has a wonderful party!! xo

Fun and Bright 1st Birthday Cake

This cake was made for a friends daughter who just turned 1! This cake took so many hours to make but it was fun and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

The cake is a 4" top tier made from rice krispies, 6" middle tier and an 8" bottom tier. The middle and bottom are both vanilla cake with strawberry filling. All tiers are covered in homemade fondant and all decorations are gumpaste.

The cupcake was more little Miss McKenna to smash :)

The only thing that I'm not happy about is the fondant on the middle tier started to wave a bit...very frustrating to spend so much time of something and not have it come out perfect in your eyes.
