I prepared this first birthday cake for my nephew’s birthday. I got the idea from the Wilton book from 2004. It’s a two tier cake covered with fondant.
The upper tier is a 8 inch vanilla cake and the bottom tier is an 12 inch carrot cake (Emeril’s recipe from FoodTV.com) I prepared the number 1 melting white chocolate into the #1 pan. Prepared decorations and letters with fondant.
This cake is 100% edible (except the candle).
Just a fair warning, the Happy Birthday letters were irresistible for the kids. At the end of the party it had 4 missing letters. The kids loved it and everybody wanted a piece of the chocolate #1. It was a success!
