My son Mason’s wilderness themed bash was so much fun, I knew I wanted to incorporate Mason’s love of the bush/outdoors into his first Birthday bash.
I wanted his cake to be rustic and fun, he just loves animals so I knew I had to have them somehow on his birthday cake.
He had bears wolves, foxes, moose and deer carved into cake like it had been carved into a tree, with a wooden "one" cake topper which finished it off perfectly.
The cake inside matched the plaid elements throughout the party. To all the cakers out there, I used Sugar Geeks tutorial to achieve that! I did'nt quite do it justice (my plaid was a bit wonky oops) but ultimately I was happy with the end result because as all the kids (and adults) loved it and the whole thing got eaten!!
We got mason a beautiful handmade wooden gun for his first present as his daddy and the rest of our family are super keen hunters, it even had his name and first birthday date stamped into it along with his own gun licence!
We had our friend Troy Baker from Troy Baker Photography to take all the photos for us. He captured all the special moments through out the party for us to look back on and cherish.
