Remember how I told you that I had originally planned to throw my daughter a small party, since she was turning one etc etc etc... then that all went out the window. Well it went out the window about 4 months before her birthday when I started searching for first birthday party ideas on Pinterest and decided she should have a Daniel Tiger birthday party since she loves him!
The recipe here makes one 9 in round cake for you to decorate. I did not include an additional recipe for the cupcakes (I did a different flavor for the ears.) You'll want to remember to save a little bit of icing for the whiskers. I completely forgot and dyed it all orange and then I made PH go buy me a small bag of white icing because I did not feel like cleaning everything I had used just to make a tablespoon of frosting. Use the same frosting recipe here, but use orange food coloring instead.
Now I used the full recipe because we had her birthday party on the same day of my brother's birthday (her actual birthday is the day before his) so I used the extra cake for him.
I've also included some of my notes regarding the decorating. I followed the directions at the website to decorate the cake with these few variations I mention at the bottom of the recipe.
This cake was delicious, and fun to make except for the eyes. Those Oreos drove me nuts! Be very gentle with them!
