made this barnyard animals themed cake for lil boy’s first birthday.
baked a moist vanilla cake (usually it’s moist chocolate cake, but a moist vanilla cake is quite interesting). as usual, i frosted the cake with swiss meringue buttercream. decorations were edible images, and some crushed cookies, and topped off with a nice cake topper.
Baby boy was excited to see his cake and was eager to smash the cake, but he got a “hey!” from dad, and thought he was not supposed to touch the cake, and we missed the opportunity of having him smash his first birthday cake *sigh*. but no worries, we all had fun, and they’ll always be opportunities to smash and dig into a cake ay baby 😉
