I had the pleasure of making a cake and cupcakes for the cutest little one year old around (hi eva!). i love that there wasn't a theme because i like a nice understated chic kid party and usually they're not like that at all (go hana!).
i had creative freedom but kept it pretty simple. i made vanilla cupcakes with vanilla magnolia buttercream :
stamped monogram cupcakes i made in the past so i made sure to use the same stamp for her toppers:
I made little bows to represent Eva's sweet little girly side and to tie in some pink...this was a baby girls party after all ;)
I kept the cake really simple, pale tiffany blue and white with pink accents. I made the cake topper at work; i based it off of the water bottle wraps that were made for the party to keep everything cohesive.
i added a couple medium sized polka dots and that was it, it was complete
Here's the final result:
the sun was not kind to my cupcakes....but i guess that's what happens when you make icing from scratch. started out pretty, then started leaning, and ended up a melted mess, lol. thank god it was for a friend
(it took an hour for them to die so people saw them when they were pretty, so not a total loss)
