His party was all about the #1, so I made a little smash cake with a fondant 1 on top and made colorful circle cutouts with the letters of his name imprinted on them to go around the cake. The cake itself was yellow cake with chocolate buttercream.
We've never done a smash cake at our own family parties, so everyone was a little apprehensive about putting an entire cake in front of Jake...but he LOVED it! He dug right in and spent the next 1/2 hour picking off pieces of cake and licking them off his fingers - it was awesome!!
Unbelieveably, I forgot to take pictures of the cupcakes! I didn't like how they looked in the box when I was taking pics at home, so I thought, "no worries, I'll take pics at the party!" Ummm, yeah that never happened - oh well! If my sister-in-law has any pics of them, I will post them in an update! :) They were a mix of chocolate and vanilla and had fondant toppers similar to the circle ones on the cake - the only difference was that they all had a "1" on them!
Happy Birthday Jake - you're the CUTEST!!!!!!! Love you!!
