Homemade First Birthday Cake

I made this First Birthday Cake for the 1st birthday of my friend's son. She left all the design in my hands so I didn't want to disappoint her.

When I think about babies, somehow teddy bears pop up in my mind and at the same time I wanted to include a big number 1 figure. Therefore I thought about having a cute little teddy bear sleeping on a number 1.

I baked two rectangular cakes. One bigger than the the other. I sliced the big one and filled it with jam and butter cream and then I covered it in white sugarpaste.

From the smaller cake I have cut a number 1 figure and covered it in blue sugarpaste. I positioned the number 1 cake on top of the big rectangular cake, on the upper part of the cake not in the middle.

Then I formed the teddy bear's head out of a ball of brown sugarpaste completed with paws and a sleeping hat and put it on the number 1. I rolled out a piece of green sugarpaste for the blanket and put it just underneath the teddy bear's head. Underneath the blanket i have put some cake leftovers so that they seem like the teddy bear's body.

Last but not least I did some coloured sugarpaste squares and piped a letter on each one in order to read HAPPY BIRTHDAY ANDRE` and put some yellow stars all around the cake.

Coolest First Birthday Cake and Smash Cake 47

Homemade First Birthday Cake and Smash Cake

I was inspired to make this Homemade First Birthday Cake and Smash Cake from looking at others on this website, and I got a lot of useful tips from here and elsewhere on the internet. As suggested by another parent, I made two 9X13 sheet cakes (chocolate for the bottom, white for the top) and froze them overnight. I did level the chocolate one before freezing, and took part of the top of the white one off, as well (although I didn’t get it quite level!).

The following evening, I used a bit of frosting to put the two layers together and then cut them into the shape of a “1.” I actually did draw my outline on parchment paper beforehand and used that to guide my cuts. I used part of what I cut off to put together for my son’s smash cake (again, using frosting to hold it together). I then frosted with an initial “crumb coat” layer of white frosting and froze that overnight. (I wasn’t quite sure about freezing twice, but I wanted to be sure the crumb coat was firm and it worked out just fine.)

The last evening I added the final layer and decorated the cake. I had already purchased the napkins and candle with the “dot” theme, so I bought some confetti dots to complete the look. It was a hit!

Edging
by: Mom of one 1 year old!

Really cute idea! I think I'm going to try this for my sons first birthday. I was wondering what tool use used to make the edging around the bottom of the cake?

Beautiful

Coolest Boy's 1st Birthday Cake 51

Homemade  Boy's 1st Birthday Cake


I got the idea for this Boy's 1st Birthday Cake from this website. I thought it was a very fun and creative idea for my son's 1st Birthday cake.

I used 2 boxes of funfetti cake mix and baked the cake in a large 12x18 sheet cake pan. I baked the cake the day before my son’s birthday and let it cool in the fridge overnight. The next day, I used cardboard stencil I made of the number 1 to cut out the number 1.

I mixed vanilla frosting with blue food coloring to get the shade of baby blue that I wanted. After frosting the cake, to use the excess cake that I cut out for my letter blocks. I placed them on the cake in the positions that I wanted and frosted them. This was the hardest part in my opinion because the edges were completely raw.

I then drew the letters of my son's name on the blocks and outlined the edges with white tubed frosting. I used mini marshmallows to border all around the bottom of the cake. The last thing I did was sprinkle sprinkles all over the cake to top it off.
