Tower of Blocks for 1st Birthday

For this unique and playful first birthday cake, I cut out 12 squares of cake, in three graduated sizes, and sandwiched them together to form three cubes.  I then covered them in white fondant, piling them on top of each other to form the kind of tower a child might build.

Simple decorations made from coloured fondant were added to each face as the finishing touches.

(On the same day, my son, while on the trampoline, added “finishing touches” to his own face that resulted in a trip to the emergency room!)
