At Stardust Cakes we've done our fair share of First Communion Cakes: ranging from Bibles to loaves of bread and grapes. We were very excited, to receive a request for an unconventional approach to this cake.
Since the celebrant loves Barbies, and we've done a couple of Barbie cakes for her along the years, we made her a Barbie doll cake for her Communion cake. The doll's dress mimicked her own dress, with a few extra flowers for added complexity.

Some one very special just celebrated his very first birthday, and because he loves his puppy so much, the theme of the party was Spot the dog. The cake was a super healthified carrot cake with a white chocolate cream cheese frosting. The toppers were the baby boy and his dog made out of sugar.

The party had a lot of details. A full spread, personalized cookie jars and glass bottles. And the big hit of th party was the entertainment, a ball pit for babies and toddlers. What fun!




A gorgeous veg...
