Dr. Seuss 1st Birthday Cake

My beautiful boy, Jacob, was born March 2, 2011. As many of you may know, that is also the birthday of the wonderful Dr. Seuss. It was the perfect theme for Jacob's first birthday!

The invitations were hand made including a poem I wrote just for the occasion:
The time has come, the time is NOW!
Jacob is one, time flew somehow!

We're having a party, we'll give a cheer!
To celebrate all his growing this year!

You can come on skates, you can come on skis,
You can come in a hat, but please come Please!

Would you, could you? Don't say no!
Call us and tell us that you can go!

All of the decorations were the Seuss colors including the gift bags. I even found a wonderful Dr. Seuss font!

The best decoration was the cake! Jacob's cake was a three tier cake frosted with butter cream and decorated with hand made gum paste figurines.

The bottom tier was marble. To make my marble cake, I swirl yellow cake with chocolate ganache. It was then filled with more chocolate ganache! It was frosted with blue buttercream & decorated with the One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish & Blue Fish. The "pen" strokes were hand painted with black food coloring.

The middle tier was Devils food cake with Grand Marnier chocolate ganache. It was decorated with hand made figurines of Horton, The Lorax, The Sneetches, & Tuffela Trees.

The top tier was pound cake filled with white chocolate ganache & fresh blueberries! It was decorated with Truffela Trees and hand made figurines of The Cat in the Hat, the Grinch, & Sam I am.

It was a wonderful party. Jacob didn't even wait for blowing out the candle. As soon as he could, he reached his fingers out for a big swipe of his smash cake! The smash cake was white cake filled with his favorite yogurt! It was decorated in the Dr. Seuss blue & red colors with a big J on top just for him.

It was very sad to see that my baby boy turned 1, but a wonderful celebration with friends & family made it much easier.

Thank you for taking a peek at my Dr. Seuss 1st Birthday Cake
