Adriana's 1st Birthday

This morning we completed a birthday cake for Mel's neighbour's little girl who turned one. They were celebrating Adriana's 1st birthday at Downy's Farms for a fun filled morning at the petting zoo, pumpkin patch and a hay ride among other exciting things.  So in keeping with the farm theme Adriana's mom Stephanie wanted a cake with farm animals.  She saw one online that she liked and thanks to "The Pink Cake Box" we got our inspiration.  All the animals are made from fondant along with the flowers, etc. except for the topper's on the cake.  These larger animals and the # 1 were made from gum paste.  The fence was made with choc fondant, yum!  The 10" bottom tier is alternating layers of choc and vanilla cake with cookies & cream filling and the top 6" is a choc vegan cake with strawberry cream.  Both tiers are covered in pale green fondant.

Mel & I had so much fun making this cake and when Mel delivered it today Adriana's mommy & daddy were thrilled as were the guests. And according to Mel, Jackson had a fabulous time at Downy's farm with Adriana.  Happy 1st birthday Adriana!
