I can’t quite believe that my baby turns one tomorrow! I decided to take the opportunity while he was napping today to make his cake with my 5 year old. It turned out really nice! I thought I’d share it here. (click on photos to view larger)
We started out by baking a white cake in two 9″ rounds and stacking them with a couple dollops of frosting in between for stability. Next we frosted the whole cake.
My daughter enjoyed making the ‘sand’ by mashing animal crackers!
Then we sprinkled the ‘sand’ on around the base of the cake – after sticking on the ‘sea grass’.
Last, we washed/dried a package of plastic sea creatures that we bought at the store – and arranged them on the cake.
I wrote “1 Cooper” on the top (not my best skills but it’s legible)! 😛
We had a lot of fun making our baby’s first birthday cake! Two of my favorite hobbies, baking & art!
Have a creative week~
