Received yet another adorable request for a first birthday cake: a 3D Baby Teddy Bear wearing a diaper and an Elmo Bib, building block letters spelling birthday boy's name placed in front of the cake.
They had scheduled a taste testing session back in March and said they liked the Strawberry cake & Chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream filling. So they wanted their cake to be half strawberry, half chocolate. Then 2 days before the birthday party, they requested the cake be made gluten free with minimal sugar. I had to run to the store to buy the different ingredients to make a gluten free cake, but I'm happy that I was able to do this for them, since the mother was saying that her son was reacting to the cupcake that she had made earlier in the week.
Cake: Gluten-free Strawberry & Gluten-free Chocolate Cake
Filling: Vanilla Buttercream
Icing: Vanilla Buttercream
*Teddy bear with hands in front, space for a cupcake (mother will make the cupcake)

*Teddy will have brown "chestnut" color "hair/fur" with light pink nose, black eyes (refer to photo sent of teddy bear" to recreate size of eyes, where to place the eyes, etc.)
Happy First Birthday, ALEC!
