Max's 1st birthday celebration!
For Max's 1 year old birthday we made a beautiful 3 tier cake. Bottom tier is our dark chocolate cake with valrhona 70% chocolate buttercream, middle vanilla cake layered with valrhon ivoire chocolate and raspberry buttercream and finally top red velvet with our madagascar bourbon vanilla cream cheese frosting. The cake was covered with white fondant and decorated with ribbons and blue fondant circles. We then topped the cake with Max's favorite puppy stuffed toy and favorite blue blanket. WE presented the cake on a beautiful cake stand and placed our vanilla and carrot cupcakes around it for an even more stunning presentation!
We also made pink and blue "No.1" cookie party favors for each little guest to take home. Everyone got their No.1 cookie with either blue or pink icing and their names written on it. Wonderful way to take something home from such a lovely 1 year old birthday celebration!
