I know I've said it lots of times before, but I just LOVE first birthday parties!! It's a great celebration for the parents...who just made it through an entire year with a baby. It's also so much fun to see the baby tear into their smash cake!
I was thrilled to make this birthday cake for the daughter of a long time friend of mine. The party was Pinkalicious themed, which is a super cute series of books for little girls. The little girl, named Pinkalicious, loves the color pink and especially loves pink cupcakes. Her parents warn her not to eat too many pink cupcakes, but she does anyway...and, she turns pink! I made a really (really) big cupcake cake for this special celebration. And a smaller version for the birthday girls' smash cake. The top part of the cupcake cake was made out of white almond cake and white chocolate buttercream and the bottom part of the cupcake cake was made out of strawberry cake and white chocolate buttercream. Happy happy birthday, Lyla!
