Homemade First Birthday Cake

Homemade First Birthday Cake

I found the Hugs n' Stitches theme on a few different sites. I thought this would be great for a little girl's first birthday. My husband's cousin asked me to make her daughter's cake. So of course I picked this First Birthday Cake.

I used both a strawberry and yellow cake mix and swirled them together to give more flavor and also make the cake thicker. After the cake was baked I evened out the top with a knife. I crumb coated with canned icing. I then spread a thick layer of white icing and evened out. I airbrushed the base colors. Then used a star tip to make the number 1. I used a writing tip to trace out the flower and butterfly then just filled in with different colors of icing.

Everyone loved this cake and it was so simple to make.

Homemade Hugs and Stitches First Birthday Cake

Homemade Hugs and Stitches First Birthday Cake

I made the homemade hugs and stitches first birthday cake for my cousin's little girls first birthday. This cake was made by using buttercream icing. I iced the cake into it's sections. Using a flower and butterfly cookie cutter, I made an impression and used a round tip to outline and a #16 star tip to fill in.

I drew the number one out on a piece of paper, cut it out, and traced the outline with a toothpick. The name was also done with cookie cutters. All the ladybugs and the bee were done free-handed using round tips. The top border is a reverse shell border and the bottom is a regular shell border using tip #21.

color?

i want to make this cake for my daughter's first bday.. but I was wondering how to get the three sections colored that way? do you color the icing itself and smooth the edges or did you use spray on paint? or edible cake sugar sheet things?

First Birthday for Boy Cake

by Kendra

It is a 3 tier cake, a 10inch, 8inch and a 6inch. I used home made buttercream icing,which will crust giving it that smooth look as if though it is fondant. I used colored fondant to create the pearl bordeer, and I used cookie cutters for the letters. I also used piping gel to help the fondant letters stick to the side of the cake. When building the cake, I used four dowel rods in the bottom cake, and four in the middle. Every layer has a cake board underneath it, and then once it was all together I stuck a wooden shish ka bob stick down the center! Email me for further questions...

Homemade First Birthday Cake

I made this cake for my son's first birthday.

I used a rainbow bit cake mix and fondant. I first made a cake out of the number 1 cake pan and covered it in fondant. I then cut circles and frogs out of the fondant with cookie cutters. Next, I made a large slab cake and covered that with fondant and put little fondant balls all the way around.

I then placed the first cake onto the slab cake, putting little fondant balls around that as well. I cut the letters out with a utility knife.

I was really happy with how the cake turned out and and pretty sure my son liked it too.
