My little man is turning one!

I know I have been absent for a little while now.   I have been longing for the days for when my little Pixie was still a newborn and took naps all day long.  Sigh.  Now I spend my days cleaning up the hurricane debris from where my little one has wreaked havoc.  He is starting to take some steps on his own and has discovered the toilet paper in the main floor bathroom.  He can catch up to the cats now and my dish towel drawer will never be the same.

This past weekend we celebrated his first birthday a little early with our family and friends in Raleigh.  My parents even drove 6 hours from Tennessee so they could see him eat his first bite of cake.  While he had his own little cake to smash and rub all over his face, I made a cake for the adults to enjoy.

I found this card on Pinterest and decided that it would make an adorable cake.

I tinted the fondant a little brighter, but I think the cake came out pretty well.

I still need practice with my fondant but I am slowly getting better covering the cake.  Of course, the best part was the inside with the homemade buttercream frosting and cookie dough crumbles.

Now pardon me while I reminisce over some baby pictures.


  1. So cute! Good job adapting that to fondant. It's a skill I will never have. ;) I can't believe Wacey's already 1!

    1. Thanks Shana! And what you (probably don't) lack in fondant skills, you definitely make it up with your crocheting.
