A Bundle of Baby Cakes and Joy!

One of the best things about babies (aside from the soul-bursting sense of fulfillment and deep love), is that they are so freaking adorable and pretty accommodating (since they don’t have a lot of recourse aside from crying…). You can put them in the most precious, squeal-worthy outfits. You get to decorate their rooms however you want. You can pose them in the cutest photographs (you know, the ones with tulle and little baby fat rolls everywhere!). And you can do all this without any worry that they will complain, roll their eyes, or give you any lip. That is, until you start busting out the baby pictures the first time a date comes to the house… but that’s years away.

Another great thing about this time in your little one’s life and the ability you have to take advantage of all the cute, is the birthday parties! Oh the options for theme are innumerable and I’m pretty sure there’s no limit to the amount of adorable you can cram into one day. We love being a part of these celebrations and getting to bring such sweet cakes to life!  So, without further adieu, let’s get on to the cute confections.  Comment below and let us know which is your favorite!

Don’t forget, you can always see more adorable cakes like these on our Pinterest!
