Cute Homemade 1st Birthday Cake with Cupcakes

My son’s first birthday party was pretty classic. We decorated with photos of him, hung some of his baby clothes to show growth. Pretty much dark blue, light blue and white. I bought these #1 plates for the food and I wanted the 1st Birthday Cake to match.

So for his smash cake I baked two layers of 8″ round confetti cake and filled them with butter cream. I dirty iced them and covered them in fondant. I took waxed paper and traced the number one off the plate, cut it out and used it as a template. I watered down some gel food coloring and with a food safe brush, I traced the “1” onto the cake. I painted the plaid pattern inside it like the plates had and added the balloons from the plates as well. I added his name to the top and did a giant butter cream shell border and was done.

I also made chocolate and vanilla cupcakes in white and blue for the guests.
