Happy Birthday Baby!

Today is my sweet baby's first birthday!  This is a great occasion to be a little crafty for someone else- so, I took a deep breath and braved my FIRST EVER FONDANT CAKE!

I used the Make-a-Cake Series tutorials from Make It and Love It to create this cake, and I must say, these tutorials are easy to follow and have great results!  There are also some great reader tips in the comments.  I have never done anything like this before and I think it turned out pretty cute.  

I also made him a cute little shirt to wear for the big day.

It's been a tough year for me.  We've had a lot of challenges together, my grumpy baby and me.  The days went so slowly sometimes, but the year went so quickly-- if you are a mom, you understand what I mean.  I'm so happy we made it here, and I can't wait to see what the next year has in store for us.


  1. He's too cute to be grumpy! Love his shirt! I especially love the cake! You did an awesome job!!!

  2. Happy Birthday Little Man! I can't believe how fast it goes, my little guy will be 1 on Friday and i think i just might have to steal that shirt idea, too cute!

  3. Happy Birthday to your little one. The cake looks really good. Great job!

  4. oh my goodness.. what a handsome little one year old!!!
    The cake and the shirt turned out amazing!! great job.

  5. Awh! He is adorable and lucky to have such a crafty Mom.

    Being a Mom is never an easy job, but the first year is the roughest due to the lack of sleep. Babies are high maintenance but worth every minute of it.

    Congratulations to you for making it through one of the toughest parts of parenthood.

    I also have to give you kudos on this being your first fondant cake as it looks fab. My first one looked more like a pathetic Salvidor Dali looking thing.
