I am still a little overwhelmed/appalled that my baby girl turned one. Also, it happened almost a month ago now, and I'm still pretty offended by that. I fully intended for her first birthday to be a quiet affair because she is little and would not remember and I did not want her to be overwhelmed.... but that definitely did not end up being what happened.
We threw her a Daniel Tiger Themed Birthday Party because she LOVES Daniel Tiger. We did a smash cake photo shoot, and I decided to make the cake. Then I decided to tell you guys how to make it, so you could make it too!
I decided to do a six inch cake because it's not like our tiny tot was going to eat the whole thing anyway. Although she did dig into that frosting pretty well. My husband tried to throw it away afterwards. My reaction was, "heck no! We are eating that cake!" We just scraped off the messy parts that she and enjoyed. It is a little bit of a bummer to see your beautiful creation be annihilated. It was annihilated by my even more beautiful creation though, and she really was so cute doing it. She went right for the cake!
This is a simple recipe for a delicious funfetti cake. Funfetti feels appropriate for Daniel Tiger. The roads in the land of make believe look like funfetti roads. I decided to do the decorative icing in yellow and orange because bright, happy colors is also a Daniel Tiger staple. It is three layers, which may feel like a lot for a baby, but like I said, you can all enjoy the cake afterwards. Just cut away the part where baby really got in there and enjoyed her birthday cake!
This cake brought her a lot of joy, and it can bring you and your little one joy as well! Happy Daniel Tiger cake smashing!
