Juleah asked for a sheet cake which I made from vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream. On top, I mimicked the partyware design and created a parti-colored backdrop with mint green, butter yellow, and lilac. Using fondant as accents, I added in a large '1', a butterfly, and a flower. I rolled out pink fondant and cut it freehand in a wavy pattern to wrap around the sides. The proverbial icing on the cake was the stitching I added in blue, which tied everything together!
I wish the picture had come out better...I totally forgot to take a picture at home and my daughter and husband were waiting in the car, so I had to hustle!
Here is the smash cake, which I coated in butter yellow and then piped on an M (the birthday gal's name is Madelyn) and added fondant flower cutouts. I love this smash cake. It's so girly and feminine without being in your face pink!
Happy first birthday, Madelyn! May you have many more!
