Back in February, we had the pleasure of designing Paris inspired dessert stations for a very sweet 10-year old’s birthday. This party was recently featured on Hostess with the Mostess! Please visit the post here for design details, tips and tricks! We decided to break this up into 2 posts full of detailed photos and fun!

This post will feature the cake station. We wanted there to be a separate place for the big “Happy Birthday” moment, and set up a cake station inside the house. A whimsical tulle backdrop and hanging eiffel tower medallions created the perfect backdrop for the vintage dresser. We used custom, hand painted hat boxes to display each mini cake. Each guest took home a paper shoe favor boxes, custom popcorn cone and hat box. When it was time to sing, the birthday girl and her guests gathered around the vintage dresser for a big surprise. Each guest found their special cake and were completely immersed in the festivities.

We worked with the talented Vanilla Bake Shop on these cakes. From the initial sketch, to the final product, I am always impressed with the intricate detailing that goes into each. The girls were thrilled!
