Chic Zebra-Striped Pillow Cake.

This cake was custom designed for a classy
Black, White & Pink themed 1st Birthday Party.

I was asked to create a Black & White zebra striped cake,
however, the rest of the cake design was left entirely up to me.
I wanted to make something unique & elegant,
so I decided on a gorgeous pillow cake, fit for a Princess!

The cake flavor is Fudge Marble, with a filling of smooth & decadent
semi-sweet pure chocolate ganache

The lacy sugar paste plaque was perfect for personalizing the cake.

The cake topper is a beautiful hand-crafted 'ribbon rose' bouquet
made with sugar paste & dusted with edible glitter.

A 'Smash Cake'** that coordinated with the main cake, was created especially
for the little birthday girl to enjoy on her 1st milestone birthday.

A smash cake is typically given to the birthday child at their1st birthday celebration, and is to be smashed, smeared, enjoyed and eaten by the birthday boy or birthday girl.
It's a sweet, tactile and completely photogenic way to include your child in a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get down and dirty with his/her birthday cake -- literally!
Most birthday parties are celebrated with a cake, but now more and more 1st birthday parties boast two cakes, a large decorated cake and a single serving smash cake.
The birthday guest of honor gets to have fun with the smash cake, while the main birthday cake can be enjoyed by the guests, untouched by little hands.
