Circus Cake

Children's cakes are hands-down my favorite cakes to make! I love how excited kids get when they see the fun cake made especially for their special day. I love and cherish being a small part of that celebration.

First birthdays are especially precious. Even though the birthday child is really too young to probably care much about the cake decoration, I know that mom and dad want everything to be perfect for that first celebration. It's really an honor to be asked to be a part of that special day.

I recently had the pleasure of making a cute circus themed cake for a special baby girl on her first birthday.

The cake was a vanilla cake with strawberry cream cheese filling. All the decorations are hand-made from marshmallow fondant. The animals were especially fun to make.

The birthday girl had her own special smash cake, which was dairy-free per Mom's request. It was my first time working with soy substitutes and I was very happy with the results. While this butter-loving girl will never give up her butter personally, it's nice to have options for those who don't want or can't have it.

I can't resist a sweet ruffle for a sweet girl.

Happy Birthday little princess!
