Sweet Treat – Cupcake 1st Birthday

This ‘Sweet Treat’ design was created for a cupcake themed first birthday party. This three tiered cake features pastel blue buttercream icing. Baby blue, yellow and white fondant was used to create the whimsical polka dots and stripes. The sculpted cupcake topper was inspired by the many cupcake themed birthday invitations on the market.

    Hi Cheryl,

    The bottom two tiers are buttercream with fondant accents. The cupcake on top is completely covered in fondant. Hope that helps! ~ Carrie
