Mickey Mouse 1st Birthday

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I don't have a St. Patrick’s Day post to share with all of you, but I do have an adorable first birthday party! When my friend, Amber from college, asked me to make her son Cole's first birthday cake, I jumped at the chance. Amber wanted to do a Mickey Mouse-themed cake and a Baby Mickey smash cake for Cole.

For the cake, I made the bottom tier look just like Mickey’s pants! I think it looked adorable! Then, for the middle tier, I made a circle/polka-dot pattern with Mickey's silhouette throughout. The top tier is, of course, Mickey ears with Cole's name and age! I was really happy with how the cake turned out! Jessie Rae Photography took all of the wonderful photos. You can find the website at Hope you enjoy!

For Cole's smash cake, I wanted to keep it simple, but still portray baby Mickey. I made an all buttercream cake (not something I usually do), with fondant cutout stars. My awesome husband sculpted a Baby Mickey out of modeling chocolate! He did an amazing job! I can tell you that Mickey is incredibly hard to get right, but he did it!  

Here is the birthday boy getting ready to eat his smash cake!

It looks like he's really enjoying it!

So cute!

Proud mommy with her now clean little man!

Happy Birthday Cole!
