A super cute "Anchors Aweigh" Nautical-themed birthday cake perfect for a little sailor's birthday party. Complete with a crab cake topper!
I have another fun cake to share with you that I finished last weekend! For Keegan's first birthday, he celebrated with the Anchors Aweigh Party Theme.
I used the images from the 2 plate designs to come up with all the fun stuff on the cake. Mom specifically mentioned wanting the crab, so I made one for the topper!
This little guy was made from Rice Krispie treats covered in melted white chocolate (to make it smooth). Then it was covered & decorated with red fondant.
I also used the rope for the borders with some little green starfish (using this chocolate mold) to add an extra color. And the sailboat seemed perfect for adding a "1" for his first birthday! I cut it using these number cutters.
Since the theme was Anchors Aweigh, I had to have the anchor on the cake, so I used it on the bottom tier next to his name! I used some new (to me) Ateco letter cutters to cut out the letters then I "glued" them to blue backgrounds.
You can see some of my methods for attaching fondant pieces to cake here.
