Twins First Birthday

Today was the day-Ethan and Chloe’s first birthday party!!  I got up early this morning to decorate all those cupcakes (four dozen to be exact) and their smash cakes.

I made the cupcake towers using an idea I got from Martha Stewart Weddings.  Of course I thought there was a 6” box in the sets that I bought but there wasn’t so I had to adjust my design a bit and couldn’t include a third tier but that’s o.k. They still turned out cute!  All you need to make these is paper mache boxes, scrapbook paper, and glue.  Super easy!

Chloe’s smash cake was a small chocolate half round cake made to look like a flower with pink Italian Meringue Buttercream frosting, fondant/gumpaste flower petals and a fondant/gumpaste butterfly with a 1 body.  It was seriously cute!!!

Ethan’s smash cake was a 6” single layer chocolate cake with blue Italian Meringue Buttercream, a gumpaste frog, lily pad, and 1 “flies” on wire.

If I may say so myself the best part of the display are the adorable cupcakes!  Chloe’s cupcakes were all vanilla flavor with either pink or purple and white marble, the opposite color IMBC and three jumbo sprinkles on the right side.

Ethan’s cupcakes were banana with blue IMBC and green jumbo sprinkles and oreo surprise cupcakes with green IMBC and blue jumbo sprinkles.

The desserts were a hit and definitely my favorite cake project so far!  Now on to next week.  Hmmm…..
