Seuss Themed Twin First Birthday
Oh my goodness - had SO much fun with this theme! Mom wanted a nod to Seuss - no characters or anything obvious aside from the references on their smash cakes, so this is what we came up with! Top tier of large cake was fresh strawberry with vanilla buttercream filling, bottom tier was chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream filling, all covered in fondant with fondant details. Smash cakes were vanilla buttermilk cake with vanilla buttercream frosting and fondant plaques that read, "Thing 1" and "Thing 2"! I used my black food color marker to draw on all the detailing - think that is really what helps transform it into the more "Seussical" look!
