First Birthday

This was a 9 inch sponge cake I was asked to make for a friend's grandson. I would have liked to have spent a little more time on it but my mum passed away a week ago and my heart wasn't in it. She wanted a blue and white cake on a teddy theme so I modelled a teddy bear for the middle. The teddy bears on each corner of the board are from Patchwork Cutters set Make a Cradle. I embossed the board with baby items and attached a teddy ribbon all around using softened sugarpaste and held it in place with a pin or two until it had set. I made the five building blocks to create the name and embossed the other four sides of each block with the same pictures I put on the board. The number 1 is dusted in white disco hologram powder and the cake itself dusted in snowflake lustre .
