Harlow’s 1st Birthday Giraffe Cake (2340)
Edna reached out to us to help design a cake for her daughter’s first birthday princess giraffe themed party. We were fortunate to have worked with Edna for her baby shower nearly a year ago where we also created a giraffe themed baby shower cake! For this cake, Edna was inspired by a previous giraffe cake which we used as a source of inspiration to design her daughter’s cake.
The top tier of the cake is covered in hot pink fondant with polka dots in light pink. The top includes a sculpted princess giraffe wearing a silver crown with a bow and pearl necklace. A hot pink glittery “1” hangs from the necklace.
The next tier is covered in light pink fondant and darker pink polka dots. A pink rope with a bow sits at the base of each tier. Flavors and filing included coconut with chocolate filling and our signature pink velvet with raspberry chambord filling.
Along with the cake, we included a smash cake for Harlow. A glittery “1” sits atop the round cake along with pink polka dots which were coordinated with the decorations on the main cake.
Last, but certainly not least, we created coordinating giraffe and “1” cookies. The “1” cookies were decorated in hot pink fondant while the giraffe cookies were dressed with a hot pink crown on the head and a pearl necklace piped around its neck. All the cookies were wrapped in favor bags with a light pink ribbon.
Happy Birthday Harlow! We hope you enjoyed the cake!
