This past weekend was Nate’s first birthday. To celebrate, we had a “Monster” of a party! We had a music performer who did bells, and drums, and I was so happy to see even Tim get into it! We had all of our friends and family, and I made a special monster cake and cupcakes.
Tim and Brandon helped me bake, and I had a ton of fun with the frosting. For the cake, I used 2 round 9″ pans and a round bowl to make the top shape. For the cupcakes, I made them without paper lining so I could serve them upside down.
For the frosting, I used the Wilton “grass / fur” tip. It was very labor-intensive but came out so cute!

I used marshmallows with icing dots for the eyes. Such a hit! Have you made a fun cake for one of your parties? Please share the pics!
