I love reading emails that begin with "It's my son's (or daughter's) first birthday... and I was wondering... can you make this (insert awesome cake idea here)?". That's exactly how Alex's Mom's email started. Alex is the "YES... it's a BOY" (after 2 girls) baby. They have a family business and Donna (aka, Alex's Mom) thought this would be fantastic:
After my little dance of joy (yes, I get very excited about a good little challenge) and a few days because it happened to be an insane cake week (again, sorry Donna!), I replied, "you betcha" - with a smile. Here is the cake version:
I love it when I have the opportunity to see pictures of the birthday boy/girl with their cake. Donna was kind enough to allow me to share these pics with you, too! All these photos are courtesy of Donna and Jason Marchand.
*Warning: this kid is adorable... SUPER cute...
The family business is Wilf's Demolition and Salvage (I hope I got that right, Jason)... appropriate for this pic! I like the way the fondant scraps are piled so neatly in the corner. Marble cake with vanilla buttercream.
