This is my daughter’s first birthday cake. It was an attempted topsy-turvy cake (too ambitious for a second-timer, I’ll say). It was a winter theme as her birthday’s right before Christmas- Santa, reindeer, sledding penguins, etc.
The logistics of everything was pretty complicated. We were driving to Utah to celebrate Christmas with our families so I needed to make the cakes and all the fondant (as well as the figures so they dried in time) and transport all in the car in tact. Needless to say, some of the fondant was dried out and cracked and not all the figurines made it unscathed (she was only 1 so she didn’t notice).
