The twins had their big first birthday party this weekend. I made their smash cakes, and party favors! (ok - some people don't know what a smash cake is, a smash cake is the cake that you give the baby at their first birthday party that they tear apart with their hands)
The cake were yellow cakes, with pink buttercream frosting decorated with chocolate frosting, and chocolate frosting decorated with pink buttercream frosting.
The party favors: Pink velvet cupcakes with chocolate frosting and chocolate cupcakes with pink buttercream frosting.
As you can tell the theme of the party was pink and brown. That is the color scheme of the playroom. The girls had dresses that matched.
I'd say they did a pretty good job on these cakes. I didn't get a picture of them because I was taking video. I will try to get better pictures of everything from their mom. (these were from my phone- I may have a couple on my camera - I will update later this week)
Funny story, they celebrated their birthday a month ago with their grandparents in AZ, and Sylvia cried when they tried to get her to eat the cake. Then on Wed (their actual birthday) she cried when they tried to get her to eat her cupcake, but as you can see, she tore that cake up. She loved it. I guess it must be made with love for her to eat it! :-D
