We love making birthday cakes to celebrate a 1st birthday. This rocking Hello Kitty cake was no exception. =)
The 1st birthday culminates a year of firsts. From the first smile to the first night without crying, you know the 1st year of life has been exciting for the entire family.
Enter the first birthday cake.
Our modern tradition has a cake for the family (and guests) as well as a smash cake for the birthday girl (or boy).
For this recent Hello Kitty first birthday cake, our Gainesville, Florida bakery created cakes fitting of the rockin’ Hello Kitty theme.
We started off with a plain, rock themed pink cake:
Many times we create fondant figurines or recreations. For birthdays of young children, we sometimes like to use a real toy combined with cake; giving the birthday boy or girl something to keep (and play with) for years to come.
We then added a matching smash cake:
Buttercream galore. This smash cake screamed rock-n-roll. We love the pink and black contrasts and the spikes are just adorable.
Add a little Hello Kitty to the cake and…
Bam! That’s one rocking cake.
We love celebrating life’s events. This Hello Kitty cake celebrated a first birthday here in Gainesville, Florida. We’re always honored to bake birthday cakes… especially a child’s first cake.
