A happy little cake…

I think this year my favorite thing to design are the 1 year old birthday cakes.  There is so much to be inspired by.  Our client Ashley came to us a few years ago for her bridal shower cake.  She recently came back to design a cake with us for her son’s first birthday.  The inspiration she gave us?  One of my favorite children’s books, “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” by Eric Carle.

One of my favorite kids books!

Not only is this book a great story, but a visual feast for the eyes with its bright colors and textures on each page.  We were more than happy to be inspired by this beautiful and original artwork.

There was a lot of texture and painting that went into the over look of this design.
Here are the details that our client Ashley wanted to see on the cake. Her son's favorite pictures from The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
Here is our finished cake. Happy 1st birthday Davis!

  1. Oh thank you Rachel for posting this cute cute cake. I have read this book over and over to my preschool class and they never get tired of it. This cake has inspired me to maybe chance making it for their up-coming graduation.
    Your staff and artists are amazing. Keep it up!

  2. I absolutely love this cake. My son’s first birthday is coming up and we’re going with this theme as well. I was curious as far as pricing for a cake similar to this one! If you can get back to me, it would be greatly appreciated. My email is shoque29@gmail.com.
