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.
