Girly First Birthday Cake

“Thank you Hollis for everything!  The cake was wonderful.  All the guests raved about it at the party. It was really nice working with you.”  -Tracy N. (Chantilly, VA)

For this birthday cake, my client had one request:  ruffles!  Because ruffles are so labor intensive, the cost can be a bit higher.  For this reason, we compromised on a half ruffle ballerina skirt which gave her the ruffles and look she wanted while still staying within her budget.  The half ruffle also gives a bit more of a delicate look to the cake.  I completed the “girly” theme by using flower accents, a feminine name plate on the top layer, and a curly “1” on top of the cake.
