When baby turns one, he’s ready to Light Up the Party! This colorful cake will capture everyone’s attention with fondant streamers, stars and a happy candle flame. Could also be used to celebrate a first anniversary or #1 ranking!


Difficulty: Somewhat Easy


Step 1

In advance, make fondant curls, stars and candle flame. Add 1/2 teaspoon of Gum-Tex to each red, blue, green and yellow fondant. Roll out each color fondant 1/16 in. thick.

Step 2

Cut flame pattern in yellow fondant with knife. Cut three large and two medium Star Cut-Outs™ in yellow fondant. Cut remainder of fondant in 1/8 in. strips and wind around lollipop sticks to form curls. Let all fondant pieces dry on cornstarch-dusted surface.

Step 3

When pieces are completely dry, draw facial features on candle flame with black FoodWriter™. Attach cookie stick to back of flame and lollipop sticks to backs of stars with thinned fondant adhesive.

Step 4

Bake and cool cake. Ice top and sides smooth. Use tip 3 to outline candle on cake top; cover with tip 16 light and dark violet stars. Overpipe tip 5 light violet stripes on candle. Pipe tip 18 shell bottom border in white. Position stars, flame and curls on cake.

*Note: Combine Violet and Rose for violet shown.
