Allegra's 1st Birthday

It seems just a short time ago when we made Allegra's Christening cake and now she is turning one. Allegra's mom Jessica called and asked for a special cake for her special little girl....her theme....."Mickey Mouse". 

We have done the Mickey Mouse clubhouse a couple of times before and this time we thought we would do it slightly different.  The glove balloon came into mind and wouldn't you know it Jessica sent me a copy of the invite for Allegra's party and it featured the glove balloon with Mickey & Minnie in it, so the idea grew from there and Jessica loved the idea we came up with.

The clubhouse was created in a 2D effect in fondant using the blue sky as a back drop with white puffy clouds and lush green hills and trees surrounding it.

The glove balloon is a sponge ball covered in white fondant held up by 4 wooden skewers serving as the balloon ropes with the # 1 proudly displayed on the balloon.  The basket holding Mickey & Minnie is made from gum paste.


The cakes are made up of red velvet with a cream cheese filling for the bottom tier and chocolate fudge cake with chocolate mousse for the top tier.

We wish little Allegra "A Very Happy 1st Birthday!"
