Wahhh, how cute is my little nephew!? For his Totoro-themed very first birthday party, Coco Cake (also known as: L.K. Sung) worked super hard in preparing the 100 mini and regular sized cupcakes and very special fondant-covered, chocolate ganache and chocolate buttercream-filled cutting cake. Do you know Totoro? He is a very hilarious and majestic Japanese animated character who lives in a mythical forest. He flies around trees with his two other Totoro buddies and helps little children in distress. For the Totoro party, my sis requested chocolate cupcakes with chocolate buttercream topped with bright green fondant leaves, and vanilla cupcakes with blue vanilla buttercream topped with little acorns. Plus, a Totoro special cupcake for little Brody. But instead of a cupcake… I made Brody a crazy Totoro cake starring Totoro, blue Totoro, white Totoro, leaves, acorn and that little dustball character!
“Team Totoro” also went crazy with decorations: my sis Shelley, my husband Rich and I spent hours making felt decorations, including the cute orange felt “Happy 1st Birthday Brody” sign, the huge felt trees, branches and leaves, and the mini felt Totoros! Oooh and the custom cake stand I made, as pictured at the very top. This birthday was certainly crazy but a very fun project… and anything for our sis Leanne and our beloved little guy Brody!
Hope you had a Happy Happy Birthday little BB! We love you lots!
Love, Auntie Lyndsay
