Cruz's 1st Birthday Party
This past weekend our good friends, Jason and Jessica's little boy Cruz turned 1! I can't believe how fast all these little babies are growing up! These are pictures of the cake and cupcakes Amy and I made for Cruz's party.
Amy made the cupcake stand, and has been recovering it with different papers and ribbon for different events. She even thought of the clever idea of laminating the paper so that you can reuse it! All you need to make one is some cake boards and Styrofoam rounds (you can find both at Micheal's) for in between each level. Then you can cover it with ribbon and paper to match the cake and cupcakes. There's a step by step "How to" on Cake Journal.
I made the animals out of fondant, and had a lot of fun with it. I used the Wilton fondant, which you can also find at Micheal's and found out that the Wilton fondant it much better for making figurines and such then making them out of marshmallow fondant.
