Winter Onederland

Let it snow!

Headed into a snow day—and another birthday for this not-as-little one—I’m thinking back to my son’s first birthday party.

I made gum paste snowflakes to adorn a frosty blue smash cake and cupcakes. I used two 5″ round pans, which I first got to make another smash cake and have served me well the past few years.

This was vanilla on vanilla, to please a wide range of palates (and a one-year-old).

We also had a hot chocolate bar with two sizes of marshmallows, crushed peppermints, toffee crunch, sprinkles, and plenty of Reddi-wip.

Nothing like hot chocolate on a cold winter day!

I think my guy liked it!

I loved the venue, Fig Tree in Park Slope, Brooklyn, which has unfortunately closed its space.
