Picnic Birthday Cake

Picnic Themed Birthday Cake

This fun picnic birthday cake featured a buttercream cake, edible ants, “pie” cupcakes, and a great picnic theme.

At Dream Day Cakes, our licensed bakery creates custom cakes that taste amazing. Helping to celebrate a first birthday, cake artist Yeni Monroy worked with our client to help make the perfect celebration.

A classic buttercream cake topped our custom cupcake stand. A fondant banner displayed the birthday boy’s name and edible decorations accessorized the cake.

For the edible ants, Yeni used chocolate covered almonds with a delicate hand to pipe legs with royal icing. A custom checkered cake board helped bring out the picnic theme.

Instead of regular cupcakes, Chefs Yeni and Lindsay kept with the picnic theme creating grass, more ants, and “pie” cupcakes.

The filling for this pie used red m&m’s to make a great cherry pie? Don’t like cherry? No problem… there’s always blueberry…

We have a saying here at our Gainesville bakery: Every celebration deserves Dream Day Cakes. We loved helping to celebrate with this custom picnic birthday cake.
