I had the pleasure of creating 3 birthday cakes this weekend. I must say, that December birthdays are absolutely the best (mine is in a week!).
Red velvet with buttercream frosting and gum paste flowers:
Elmo! He's chocolate, with buttercream icing. (Yes, even the eyes, mouth, and nose):
White cake with chocolate filling and buttercream frosting. The palm trees, bananas, and monkey are fondant:
Today is another big baking day; stay tuned for some more holiday cakes :)
