Happy 1st Cake Smash?

Cake Details: 
  • I *tried* to make a tiered cake using this pan. The pans worked pretty well, but I totally botched the icing - so I had HEB make this vanilla cake with rustic icing for $12. Not only did it look amazing, but it was yummy! I had no idea before this, but HEB's bakery will recreate whatever you'd like for cheap. 
  • I purchased a set of three peachy pink blooms and a strand of dusty blue leaves at Hobby Lobby. I waited until florals were 50% (approximately every other week) so it was ~$5. 
  • I ordered the "One" cake insert from Amazon here for $10.
  • Once I got the cake from HEB, I snipped the ends of the blooms leaving about two inches to insert into the cake. I just went for it! It took a few tries to get the look I wanted. 
  • Even though this cost me nearly $30, I was quoted over a $100 from local bakeries for the same vision (inspiration here and here). I saved the toppers after the photoshoot and reused for her actual birthday. 

A big thank you to our friend and photographer, Lauren at Lauren Maria Photography for capturing our blue-eyed, curious, and sassy Henley.
