Book and ball were this sweet little girl’s first words and they (and the colours from the dress she wore to her party) were used as the inspiration for her 1st birthday cake. This banana nut chocolate chip cake filled with nutella buttercream was covered with a soft brown fondant accented with white and pink dots and circles. On top of the cake is a small fondant book with an edible image of the little girl and a verse written by her parents. Also on top is a large white chocolate “A” and three little pink basketballs and a number “1″. The cupcakes are topped with pink basketballs and tennis balls and pink initials. Flavours include chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream, lemon coconut cake with vanilla buttercream and red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting.
