Today I'm sharing a Baby Einstein 1st Birthday Cake.
This cake is special because just last year, I did the wedding cake and cupcakes for Olivia's mom and dad's wedding! I also did her aunt's wedding cake. I hope I don't sound like a crazy cake-stalker, but it's fun being a part of a family - getting to do birthday cakes from one year to the next ... or doing a wedding cake, then their baby's first birthday cake.
Am I weird? Don't answer that.
For the caterpillar, I made large cake balls (recipe here, just skip the sticks), then I wrapped them in fondant. I thought about dipping them, but it was much easier to chill them then wrap them in the fondant. I used lollipop sticks and melted chocolate to secure them in place.
I used my favorite FMM Tappit Letter Cutters to do Olivia's name - you can see my tutorial for how to use the Tappit Cutters here. I hand cut the blades of grass - then used a silicone pearl mold to do the border (tutorial coming soon and I'll add the link!).
And that's it, I think! This was a fun little cake to do and it was my very first Baby Einstein Cake!
Do you have any questions? I love to hear from readers, so leave me a comment!
