Chloe's First Birthday Party

What better theme for a little one's first birthday party than Sesame Street? Love it. I also loved the way her cake turned out, and I think she did too.

Sesame Street first birthday.
Sesame Street Birthday Cake
Three tiers iced in vanilla buttercream and covered in homemade marshmallow fondant. Each tier was a different flavor. Bottom (10") tier is chocolate cake, middle tier (8") is confetti sprinkle cake, and top tier (6") is dark chocolate cake.

Elmo Smash Cake

In addition to the birthday cake, I made my very first attempt at cake pops- the wildly popular bite size pieces of cake on a lollipop stick and dipped in chocolate- yes please! I used Bakerella's recipe and tutorial when making these and they turned out great!


Cookie Monster

Big Bird

The kids loved them, the adults loved them, and many people almost didn't believe they were edible.

Time for the smash cake

Happy Birthday Chloe, can't wait for next year!
