Van Watson 2012

Not only did we LOVE the concept of this birthday cake, we also loved the birthday boy’s name. For this birthday cake in Gainesville, Florida, the mother chose (what we call) “vintage meets election day” theme for the 1st birthday celebration.

We used the birthday party invitation as our inspiration. The colors, the font, the style — everything just worked.

Birthday cakes for a first birthday usually need a fun, smash cake. This party was no exception. =)

Tying the smash cake into the theme of the birthday cake had us repeating design elements. Using buttercream for the top of this smash cake allowed for that fun, messy, buttercream everywhere smashing experience.

The top of the birthday cake brought the elephant to life.
