Circus Birthday Party Treats

Pin It

Recently I was lucky enough to be asked to make the treats for a cute neighbor's cute son's first birthday party. 

 I was so excited about the classic circus theme and I love making first birthday cakes.  Mainly because they a usually small and fun.

I blame the tilting elephant on the heat.  It was not tilting when  gave it to her, I swear.  

I made the cake, cupcakes, and the circus animal cookies.

I adore how the cookies turned out.  The inspiration cookies had a very whimsical childlike feel to them so I really tried to incorporate that feel into them.
