4th Birthday Gymnastics Themed Cake

4th birthday gymnastics themed birthday cake 

This cake was inspired by the invitation where the gymnast was balancing on the number 4. We decorated the cake with colorful stars and the largest one is imprinted with Happy Birthday. This half sheet cake is bordered by a fun ruffled buttercream two tone border.

 We've been doing lots of cakes for parties held at local gymnastic facilities especially Scottsdale Gymnastics (just down the road from us) or North Valley Gymnastics. Some kids want a gymnastics theme while others pick a theme unrelated to the party activity (like the really cool bug themed cake I will be posting soon)or very often our customers selected our popular sassy circles cupcake design in bright colors (because cupcakes are so easy to serve). This cake was for a party at Scottsdale Gymnastics.

  pirate skull cupcake cake for 4th birthday celebration 

 And finally this huge cupcake cake for a 5th birthday. Our customer wanted something easy to serve since the party was being held at a park so a cupcake cake is perfect for this. Also she wanted to really light up the cake with lots of candles so we left plenty of room for that around the pirate skull. They also hired Memories Through Time to photograph the party - you can see the photos on their blog
