First Birthday Party!

Today's cakes are a family affair.

A and his cousin, A, are both turning 1 year old this month. We had a joint party for them, which meant: two cakes!

For Cousin A, a 6" pink polka dot smash cake. Vanilla cake with buttercream filling, covered in pastel pink fondant, accented with darker pink fondant dots and white beading at the bottom.

I added a variety of vanilla and chocolate cupcakes with pink buttercream and chocolate frosting on the tiers beneath the cake.

For A, something similar in light blue with darker blue squares in the same flavors.

A is a very happy birthday boy. :)

(smash cakes - $15 each; cupcakes, $1.75 each/minimum order one dozen; custom cupcake stands available, email for your quote).

More than meets the eye!

Happy 5th birthday to my neighbor's nephew. She asked for a Transformers cake, which is the birthday boy's favorite, to celebrate.

This cake is two layers of rich chocolate, filled and frosted with buttercream. The autobots logo is made from fondant and trimmed with blue and yellow buttercream beading.

Prices starts at $20.

Happy Easter

And what better way to celebrate than with sweet pink lemonade cupcakes, topped with buttercream and a twist of lime, and bright daisy-shaped cut out cookies.

We at Red Velvet Armadillo hope you enjoyed your holiday with family and friends.
