Three Birthdays - One Cake!

This is a cake I made some time ago, but loved how it turned out. I made it for the birthday celebration of twins and their older brother. So each tier reflects something unique about each one of them. All the decorations were hand made.

SpongeBob Square Pants

A light variation of a previous design I made for my son. This time for a friend's little boy turning one. He, like many of us, loves Spongybob! The bottom tier was a moist vanilla cake filled with vanilla buttercream and the top tier was a Bailey's flavored cake filled with chocolate buttercream and chocolate chips. Laurys told me that all the guests were "locos" which means crazy with the cake and that it was delicious too!

It was a refreshing citrucy vanilla cake filled with creamy vanilla buttercream. The top tier was a moist chocolate cake filled with chocolate buttercream and chocolate chips. As usual, all the decorations were handcrafted.

Choo Choo

This beautiful birthday cake with a train theme was created for Alexander's 2nd birthday. He loves trains and his mom fell in love with this cake design. The original design came from 4GoodnessCake, and I added a few details of my own as well as the cake topper and figurine. Everything is edible including the train. This was a moist vanilla cake. The bottom tier was filled with alternating layers of cream cheese buttercream and strawberries. The top tier was filled with French Pastry Cream. 30 Servings.

Who Lives in a Pineapple Under the Sea?!

SpongeBob Square Pants! This was Jeremy's Birthday cake. My 3 year old son who is crazy about SpongeBob. Who doesn't love SpongeBob? I do....He is so funny and just the cuttest thing I've seen! I designed this cake just for him and when I was making it he told me "it's going to be beautiful, right Mom?". He is so precious, he loved it and so did all of our party guests. It was a vanilla cake filled with alternating layers of vanilla and raspberry buttercream (fresh raspberries also added to the buttercream). The top was also a vanilla cake filled with alternating layers of cream cheese buttercream, strawberries and chocolate ganache. The SpongeBob Bouncer was awesome and the kids had a blast.
We actually celebrated Jeremy's, Dad's and Uncle David's Birthday that day.
