Maggie's Elephants

To my readers, if you have been following me for awhile now (thank you!), I made a toy box cake for Mia awhile back. Mia Gabrielle, whose nickname is Maggie, turned 1 and with delight, I was asked to make her first birthday cake.

The theme of the party was elephants and balloons. I had free reign of what I wanted to do with the cake as long as it had elephants, balloons and simple. I decided to do tiers of the same size stacked randomly. I did have a little trouble with the fondant this time since I used a different brand of fondant which had some dried clumps! Ugh! But overall, the cake looked the way I hope it would.

Enjoy your toddler years Maggie! See you soon!
