1st Birthday Cake with Fondant Buttons

This cute as a button 1st Birthday cake was so fun to make. I love the soft pastels and yellow stitched bow. The colours were selected to match the handmade Pom poms and other decorations made especially for the party. The little name blocks which are also made of fondant, were not attached to the cake so that they could be arranged with ISABELLA facing either up or out.
The fondant buttons were very easy to make. All you need are different sized circles and a piping tube.

I made some extra buttons to put on this little thank you cake I made for my cousin. My cousin just gave my daughter some lovely clothes, so the buttons were very appropriate.
