This week here’s something a little different. It’s true, I love designing wedding cakes but I also love designing cakes and sweets for children’s birthday parties. But being that I book so far ahead with wedding cakes, it’s not often I can acomidate small events in busy season. So when the talented Rebecca Wood asked me to design her son’s sweet table for his first birthday, I was thrilled. With the adorable apple and blue striped invitations and stationary designed by Christine Flynn of Love The Design being a great colour starting point, we wanted to incorporated subtle vintage farm influences. So for the sweets I created mini cherry pies, candy apples, caramel corn, milk and egg cookies, pumpkin cupcakes, homemade cinnamon marshmallow, white chocolate creampuffs and of course the birthday cake! There is so many details to this , it’s probably easier for me to show you then to tell you.
I wanted the look of these gorgeous White Enamel Cake Stands for holding the sweets but didn’t have enough time to order them, so I D.I.Y the cake stands with candle sticks and plates. As well made the cupcake tree with baby blocks and chalk boards.
