Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: I used an Italian meringue buttercream frosting, (Joshua's Buttercream recipe from Crafty's) the cake is 3 layers, colored in neon orange, teal, and purple. The baseball mitt is made from a tootsie roll, and the baseball (that is in the mitt) is a gumball. The baseball on the cake is a snowball cake covered in fondant. The novelties are made of fondant, tootsie rolls and covered in sugar crystals. He was also given his very own personal cake. A replica of his first Birthday cake. With his first candle. Happy Birthday Aiden

What are you most proud of? That they sent me a picture of what they wanted and I was able to give them exactly what they wanted and more.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have fun when you are decorating. If you can't have fun then your not decorating.
