It is so special when we get to do a baby shower cake for someone and then a little over a year later, make their first birthday cake! For this cake, we were asked to incorporate flowers and butterflies to match the party theme but the overall design was left up to us. The birthday girl and mommy were wearing matching flower skirts so we decided to incorpate the bright colors from the skirt into the cake to match. Since a pink cake was requested, we tried a new recipe for the strawberry cake which included fresh pureed strawberries in the batter. The cake is covered in fondant and the decorations are all gum paste. Matching cupcakes were also provided for the kids.
