Celebrate One Year Cake

Pull out all the stops‹and hit all the exciting spots for this colorful first birthday cake. The top cake, made in our #1 Pan, is stacked on two Long Loaf cakes for the big impact the day deserves. Trimmed with fondant flames and garlands of colorful dots.


Difficulty: Easy


Step 1

In advance: Make fondant flames. Tint two 1 1/2 in. balls of fondant each yellow and orange; roll out 1/8 in. thick. Cut yellow flame using large leaf and orange flame using medium leaf Cut-Out. Attach orange flame to yellow flame with damp brush. Let dry on cornstarch-dusted board.

Step 2

Bake and cool two loaf cakes and #1 cake. Trim front side of #1 cake to fit flush against loaf cake. Trim loaf cakes to 2 in. high. Cut one loaf to 12 in. long; cut the 4 in. section in half and position on full-size loaf for an 18 in. long cake. Ice cakes smooth. Roll out white fondant 1/8 in. thick. Using medium round Cut-Out, cut 25 circles and attach to loaf cakes in garland formation. Tint 2 oz. portions of fondant each rose, violet, blue, orange; roll out 1/8 in. thick. Cut 6 violet, pink and blue circles and 7 orange circles using small round Cut-Out. Attach small to medium circles with damp brush. Cut name using alphabet Cut-Outs; position on cake.

Step 3

Position cakes. Pipe tip 21 shell borders on loaves. Pipe tip 7 top and bottom bead borders on #1 cake; edge white number with tip 4 beads. Attach flame to cookie stick wick with thinned fondant adhesive. Insert stick in cake, leaving 4 in. extended.

*Combine Violet with Rose for violet shown.
