“Well,” said Pooh, “what I like best,” and then he had to stop and think. Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn’t know what it was called.”
Winnie the Pooh has some of the most memorable quotes. For real. So when I was asked to bake for a Pooh-Themed party, I was pretty excited! I’ve really grown to love incorporating some of my childhood faves into the cake designs, so it’s an exercise filled with nostalgia. It never hurts to relive memories which involve Winnie-The-Pooh, right?
This order was for a little one’s first birthday, which is such a major event. Keeping a toddler safe and alive is definitely a milestone for any parent! So yay to the festivities.
I baked a chocolate Winnie-The-Pooh cake, covered in fondant. This was the major party-cake so I made sure to include the characters sitting “outdoors” as they do. Ah, the good life.
I was also asked to make a smash cake for the birthday boy. This was a vanilla buttercream with a vanilla buttercream icing. Wanted to keep it simple for the little one’s taste-buds. Made it into a hunny-pot, ala-Pooh to stick with the theme.
I also made a few cupcakes. This was also kept relatively simple, and we decided to keep it vanilla as well. These were little bees in hunny-pots, I would imagine, the extras on any Winnie-The-Pooh episode. Haha, see, holistic.
Lastly, the grown-ups wanted their own cake. The client loves the death-by-chocolate cakes so she wanted something similar for this party as well. So for the adults, I made a cara-choc cake. This comprises of a moist chocolate sponge, with caramel filling and icing, wrapped in kitkat and topped with Smarties. Yes, that’s right – chocolate on chocolate on chocolate.
And there you have it! A Pooh-Party for a little one’s first birthday. Overload of sweet goodness, a great way to start your life, kiddo.
As usual, thanks for reading!
And all that sweet stuff, B.
