I had no idea what to do for Audreys first birthday cake! I sorta just made this up as I went along…

It was pretty easy to do, just lines up the side meeting on the top.

I think if I were to do this cake again, I would pay more attention to detail and make sure everything was symmetrical and straight!

  1. Looks yummy! Happy Birthday Audrey! How’s Mama doing celebrating her little one’s first birthday?! It is always bittersweet for me. Sniff. Sniff. 🙂

  2. Yeah – I was just going to say that your lines should have been more symmetrical.
    WHATEVER!
    It’s adorable and amazing!! Nice work!!

  3. That is so beautiful! Wow, I’m so inspired by that cake right now. I wish I had a little girl so I could make her a pink one. 🙁

  4. Happy Birthday Audrey!
    Wow! What a beautiful cake. Is that buttercream frosting? I tried chocolate buttercream frosting for the first time on Gary’s birthday this past Thursday. It was pretty good! Did you use 3 cake mixes for this one? This cake looks a lot taller then the ones you usually make.
    So glad you all had fun on Audrey’s birthday. Looks like she had a blast too!
