Baby Einstein Cake

This cake was for a little boy's First Birthday! He loves the characters and puppets from the Baby Einstein book series. The bottom layer is Lemon Cake filled with Lemon Curd and frosted with Lemon Buttercream Frosting. The top layer is a Buttermilk Cake frosted with Vanilla Buttercream Frosting. It is covered with Baker's Cakes Signature Homemade Fondant and the decorations are made from Gum Paste.

The internet is an amazing tool for finding information about an infinite number of subjects. There are so many places online to research and share cake designs, techniques, and recipes! This cake was inspired by a beautiful cake from Sweet Things Toronto. Her cake was in turn inspired by this Wilton Amazing Amazon Cake. If you are ever in Toronto please track down one of her cupcakes and overnight it to me, please!!! They are available at Beaches Bake Shop. I'm seriously not kidding!!!

I love the trepidation at first!

But it didn't take long to get to this...


  1. wow - it turned out amazing! So you made the little boy a second cake for him to devour too! Awesome!
