How fun is this cake?! It was made to celebrate a special little ones 1st Birthday. The Around the World theme came from the fact that, at such a young age, the birthday child had lived in, or been to, a whole bunch of locations across the globe.
For the cake I made a Pumpkin Spice Cake and frosted it with Vanilla Buttercream. The inside of the cake was filled with Chocolate Filling.
For the decoration I piped on a map of the globe and then marked all of the special locations. Around the sides of the cake is a Happy Birthday message.
To accompany this cake there were a few cupcakes for the little one to smash into. They are Pumpkin Spice Cake with Vanilla Buttercream. The fondant toppers were little hand painted globes with a “1” in the middle. The perfect touch to bring the whole theme together.
I really enjoyed working on this cake and am pleased with the outcome. I heard later that the cake was wonderful, both in design and flavor!
