I love when people get creative with their birthday parties! This party theme was “Preschool of Rock”; how cute! All the desserts were made to match the party invitation. The birthday boy loves music and loves to drum, so the cake was made to look like one. I’ve done a toy drum cake before, but this one was completely different! This design was super simple, so I used color and texture to add interest.
I made the drumsticks a few days before so they would have time to dry and keep their shape. I used some stencils to emboss stars on the stars and a herringbone pattern on the number one.
The cake pops were red velvet cake to match the color scheme. I dipped the pops in blue candy melts and then allowed them to dry before piping the musical notes on. I used paper straws instead of the usual lollipop sticks to keep these even more fun. I’ve done a similar cake pop before, but I always like to change it up.
I was asked to make guitar cookies, but I wanted to make a completely different design than I’ve done before so I designed myself an electric guitar cookie cutter (you can purchase it here) and made these! I really love this color scheme, it’s perfect for a first birthday party.
