One is so FUN!

My sweet little nephew Jake turned one this past weekend and I was so excited to make his smash cake and cupcakes!! He's such a little cutiepie and I cannot believe how fast he went from toddling around and falling down last month to literally running across the room, keeping up with his 2 older brothers and his cousins (my twin boys) at his party - it was amazing to see!

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!!


  1. I love the font on the fondant? did you use a special letter embosser for baking for these??
    Please share where I can them. Thanks.

  2. Hi Sylvie! Sorry it took me so long to get back to you! The letters on the fondant circles were made using "tappits". I bought mine at NY Cake Supply in NYC...but I just did a google search for them and saw they are available on Amazon.com! The font I used was the "funky uppercase letters". Let me know if you get them and use them - I'd love to see your work!
