A Sweet Tooth's Dream

Miss Olivia's 1st birthday was on Sunday, and I was asked to make her cake! Here it is:


And a side view:


Okay...just kidding...that was just her very own special mini cake. Here is the REAL cake:



What do you think?? I love all the pink! I thought everything turned out really well. It is white cake on top and the bottom layer is chocolate. It is covered in buttercream with fondant accents. It took me about 6 1/2 hours on Saturday to do it...and I baked all the cake on Friday! Yikes! Really though...this cake was fairly stress free and I am really happy with it.

This is my favorite part of the cake:


I made this cake topper out of fondant on Friday so that it would harden enough in order to stand up straight. I found a picture of one online and I new it would be perfect for this cake.


As you may remember, this was not all of the baking I had to do the weekend. I signed up to bring breakfast to Sunday School. I decided on the Sour Cream Coffee Cake and the Chocolate Chip Muffins.


I got to use my fancy cake plate! I LOVE when I get to use that :)




Matt and I had a wonderful time at brunch with our little old couple friends after church. I did miss my usual Sunday nap though...so today could be rough!

Hope everyone had a great weekend...happy Monday!
