Paige’s 1st Birthday Chevron Cake (2530)
Paige celebrated her first birthday this past weekend. We had created Paige’s Baptism cake last year and were thrilled to work with the family again for her first birthday!
The colors and chevron pattern incorporated into the cake design were inspired by the invitation. The entire cake is covered in an apple green fondant with colorful Gerber daisies decorating the top and bottom tiers. A raspberry pink scrolled fondant “1″ decorates the top tier in honor of Paige’s birthday.
The second tier includes a chevron pattern from the invite. An apple green plaque with piped dots includes Paige’s name in a raspberry pink script. Flavors and filling included vanilla polka dot with strawberry, chocolate with oreos and cream buttercream and coconut with raspberry buttercream.
Happy 1st Birthday Paige! We hope you enjoyed the cake!
To create the chevron pattern for Paige’s cake, we applied the wax paper technique from Jessica Harris’s Craftsy class. To learn more about her technique check out Joanne’s review of her class.
