Girl’s 1st Birthday Cake

This cake was for a girl’s 1st birthday….I love the colors and the simplicity of stripes and polka dots.  All of the decorations for this cake were made of fondant except the flowers and the number 1’s….those were gum paste.  If you enjoy cake making and you’ve never worked with gum paste you’ve got to try it!  It’s a lot like fondant but it hardens so you can make a number or something, stick some toothpicks into the bottom of it and put it right on top of your cake, so cute! You can find it ready made or as a powder that you just add water and powdered sugar to (that’s how I get it).  You can find it at your local craft store.

I also just love the little tutu smash cake….it’s super easy to make your own tutu for something like that.  I think I just found a tutorial on Pinterest or Youtube on how to do it.
