Gavin's mom and dad threw him a barnyard bash for his 1st birthday. I loved the party theme and was excited for a new challenge! Each tier was a different flavor cake - marble, yellow, and chocolate. The fences, tree, and sun were all made from melting chocolate (both edible and delicious!). The roof of the barn was made from two chocolate covered graham crackers. I later added grass around the bottom of the barn. 100% edible. 100% adorable!

I get requests for 1st birthday cakes more than anything else - good thing they are some of my favorite to make! This girl's mommy wanted something "hot pink and girly". I was excited to make an entire cake covered in swirls which, to me, screams girly.
