Shabby Chic First Birthday

shabby chic cake

My client was having a “shabby chic” themed 1st birthday for her daughter.  The only request that she had for the cake was that it have ruffles!  I felt that doing an entire cake in ruffles might be a bit overwhelming, so I sent her a few other designs and from those we decided to add the flowers with the scroll stems to the middle cake.  I know that the “smash” cake is popular for 1st birthdays.  Of course, I would be happy to make a separate smash cake, but another option is to make the 8/6/4-in cake and use the top as the “smash” cake.

Cake Dimensions:  (1) 8-in round (1) 6-in round (1) 4-in round
Serving Size:  26 sensible servings (22 sensible servings when using the top as a “smash” cake)
Type: fondant over buttercream
Event Location:  Richmond, VA
