My only nephew has his first birthday last weekend! I had the privilege of decorating the cake and I love how it turned out. My sister made most of the decorations, which I’ll share in an upcoming post because she did such an amazing job! She used a theme of navy stripes, aqua chevron, and white dots on green background which I tried to incorporate into the cake. You’ll see how the theme fits together in my next post. I opted not to try the chevron on the cake for time’s sake, but I think it still looks great!
I made an easy flag with Tate’s name to put across the top of his cake, and then I made the exact same thing with a “one” for his smash cake.
This smash cake was so simple. I just took strips of fondant, wrapped it around the cake starting at the bottom, and then finished it off with a little seam. It took about ten minutes to complete… not my best work, but I was exhausted from the rest of the cake lol.
I used vanilla and and the same food coloring I used for the fondant to color the inside of the cake! It was an easy added touch.
