This post has been a long time coming. It is the final post for Liam’s first birthday party. I thought this day would never come! You’re probably sick of seeing little froggies by now, but there’s still a little cuteness left. But just in case you can’t get enough, I’ve added a few reminders of what I’ve already shown you.

The Dessert Table
First of all, that’s a lot of cupcakes!
I already had the two cupcake holders, but I needed something to hold the rest of them and add height and a focal point for the table. I pulled out all my glass/crystal cake stands and fiddled with them until I came up with this tower of breakables. The tiny cake stand up top came from Hobby Lobby and I love it!
The cupcakes are my favorite cupcakes topped with frogs made from candy melts.
On the right were more Crispy Rice Squares (this time dipped in vanilla bark), green mints and Gummi Frogs!
So, it was time for the Birthday Boy to dive into the cake. We sang “Happy Birthday.” And this happened…
I guess he didn’t know what was going on. Everyone was looking at him and singing. Scary!
The cake, by the way, was made by stacking 3 small cakes I baked in ramekins. I used a flat piping tip (the other side of a basket weave tip) and made vertical lines. They were a little wavy and had the look of water. Some little swirls decorated the top.
Again, I used candy melts to make a large frog on a wooden skewer. He was so adorable!
Bluebeard got mad again toward the end. I blame it on the sugar high.
Thanks for enduring all these posts. But a bigger thank you goes to everyone who helped celebrate my baby’s birthday.
