Heidi Swapp - Birthday Cake Flowers


Isn't the cake everything? When I was planning my daughter's birthday party I just saw flowers on the cake like this in my mind and designed the party around them. They were pretty amazing on the glittered edible polka dotted fondant cake.

I couldn't get the gold and rose gold flowers out of my head too. I wanted the party to be fun with a touch of elegance. This was probably the last birthday I would have the only say in and why not go all out?! Ha!

The cake was amazing! I worked with Sweetly Baked!, a local bakery, and they made a two tier cake with two different flavors (perfect for those picky family members), yellow and chocolate. I loved the gold edible glitter polka dots she added!!!


The cake was the perfect focal point for the birthday table and I am so glad I made a new friend - Christine from Sweetly Baked!
