I saw this skirt design on another cake and so wanted to use it! What a fun cake for a one year old! And in case you can't tell, those are supposed to be balloons on the top tier. It's part of the decor for the party. Anyway, I loved this cake and will probably do something similar for my daughter's 1st birthday. Yes, for those of you who don't know, I'm expecting my 3rd child in October and it's my first girl. Yay!!! Also explains why my last couple of months are closed (for those of you wondering).
