A Lovely Cake for a Little Miss

This past weekend I had the wonderful privilege of making a dear friend's daughter's first birthday cake. Her little one seriously has the biggest eyes you've ever seen on such a little girl - accompanied by a teeny tiny mouth that is almost always at a pucker. It's downright adorable. 

When she had so willingly babysat the Manchild when I was recording a couple segments with some local tv stations, I was more than happy (and eager!) to make her dear little one's birthday cake. When I dropped off the cake, you should have seen the amazing decorations and beautiful food she had ready for the party. It was a French Cafe theme, and so perfect for such a little sweet girl. I thought the cake was perfectly feminine, and with just the right amount of daintiness. The Eiffel Tower is actually a souvenir from Paris when the little one's Mom visited France a while ago.

The cake was two-layers, with the top layer being slightly smaller than the bottom. To me, the cake was basically a lovechild between my Cherry Almond Vanilla Cupcakes and the frosting technique I used with my Almond Infused Cream Cheese Frosting. I added a light layer of sliced maraschino cherries inside each cake layer, and loved using the little frosting pearls to complete the petal frosting theme with a flower on top.

    1. Isn't it a blast? And I love it the most because you can fix it immediately if you don't like how the smear turned out.

    2. Sooo, I'm having difficulty finding a cute little Eiffel Tower topper. Would you be able to share where you got yours?

    3. My friend (who I made the cake for her daughter) actually bought that Eiffel Tower IN Paris when she went a few years ago. I'm sure you could find a similar one on Amazon - it's worth a shot. Good luck, June! Let me know if/where you find one.
