1st Birthday Cupcake Tower (1947)
Back in March of 2009, Tricia reached out to us to help design a cake for her daughter Anna’s first birthday party. The cake, pictured below, was inspired by our first birthday flower cake.
Over two years later, we were happy to hear from her again. This week the family is celebrating their son Alex’s first birthday. She asked for a cupcake tree and cake topper similar to our Animal Kingdom Cupcake stand.
For the cake topper, we melded the top of our 1st birthday elephant cake, which includes a turquoise elephant and stars. Red fondant covers the cake along with light turquoise, light lime, bright yellow, royal blue, orange and red stripes.
A bright yellow banner across the topper reads “Happy 1st Birthday Alex!” in royal blue piped icing. Along with the cupcake stand and topper cake we included 45 vanilla, marble and chocolate fudge cupcakes all with vanilla buttercream dyed in colors to coordinate with the topper. We delivered the entire set to the Cherry Valley Country Club in Skillman, NJ.
We also shot a video at the bakery:
