Multi-Generation Birthday Cake October 7, 2014

My husband, father-in-law and son have birthdays within the first two weeks of October. It wasn’t so bad when there were two weeks between my husband and father-in-law, but now my son has squeezed right in the middle, making for a lot of birthdays to celebrate in a short amount of time. We decided to celebrate them all together, but I thought it would be fun to make them each their own cake anyway, especially since this was my son’s first birthday.

I made a big chocolate cake for the base and covered it with vanilla bean frosting, banana cake for the middle layer covered with blue marbled marzipan, and banana cake for the top with vanilla bean frosting and celebratory sprinkles!

It was a simple but fun idea; probably more cake than we actually needed, but really, who’s going to complain about having too much cake?!
