I am just too excited about today’s post! Over time, I’ve been dreaming of making a cake like this. This theme works great with baby showers, 1st birthday’s and even an older boys birthday party.
So to follow the theme we made a Little Man mustache & bow tie cake. We iced this 2 tier cake with teal and white fondant to great with a bow tie and also added mustache on the top tier with the boys name just above it. The birthday boy’s age (ONE having a hat on the 'O' and mustache on the 'E') was used has a topper for this cute themed cake that everyone would love.
This adorable Little Man cake is perfect for your little gentleman (complete with future mustache)! Are you having a gender reveal party, pregnancy reveal party, birthday party, or baby shower? This cake will add that extra dapper touch to your party! With such character, everyone will comment on how cute the cake is. A perfect decoration for your special event!
