A child’s first birthday is a pretty big deal…especially for Mom! I must admit, I’ve been planning my son’s first birthday for about 10 months, so when the big day was nearly here, I threw on my event planning hat and went to work. First order of business was the theme, and there was no question it had to be a Special Agent Oso party. To say my son loves Oso would be a vast understatement. From invitations to goodie bags, it was all Oso. So it was imperative we also have a Special Agent Oso cake as well…enter the Frosted Cake Shop.
I knew I wanted lots of color and Oso on the cake in some way, and what owner/baker extraordinaire Tessa Lindow created far surpassed our expectations. First, she made buttercream look like fondant, something I didn’t know was humanly possible. Second, she didn’t just nail the little marzipan Oso, but she created images of Dotty, Wolfie and Paw Pilot too (if you have a child under the age of three, you know exactly what I’m referring to). But the biggest surprise, and the one that literally brought a tear to my eye, was the special cake she prepared especially for my son.
I haven’t even mentioned that the cake was delicious, light and perfectly sweet – a real crowd pleaser! We ordered the Vanilla Butter cake with Chocolate Buttercream filling and can’t wait to have Tessa make us another cake because her options – including Classic Chocolate Cake with Peanut Buttercream – sound heavenly.
