Monster First Birthday

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.

I made this monster cake and his baby cupcakes for Nate's party.

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!

For the cupcakes I went back and forth across the top.

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!
