How Will I Plan My Son's First Birthday Party?

Whether you're planning a private gathering with friends and family or a big party event, your son's first birthday celebration is definitely a special one for you. Organising the first birthday party for your son is really an exciting task. However, in order to have a successful bash, it is equally important to plan the event with care. One single mistake can ruin the entire preparation. Stated below are some top party planning tips that must be considered to experience a joyful event. Have a look – 

1. Whom to invite?

Your one year old baby may feel uncomfortable in front of strangers or new places. He won't be able to understand how to play with other kids present at the party. These factors usually urge parents to go for a low-budget small family party. However, whatever number of people you invite at the party, always keep in mind that your sweetheart will only want your attention. 

2. How much amount to spend? 

According to a statistical survey it has been stated that more than 5,000 parents prefer to spend less than $50 to more than $500 in organising the first birthday party for their child. Hence, the total amount you spend depends on the type of party that you are going to organise. Food is the main thing that drives up the expenditure, followed by cake and decorations.

3. Where to arrange the party?

When celebrating the one year birthday of your baby boy, it is usually recommended to arrange the gathering at home. He will feel more comfortable and relaxed if he can stay at home. However, if your house is too small for arranging the party, then opt for any good local community center or a restaurant as the venue. 

4. What type of cake must be included?

Nowadays there are several types of cakes that can be used for celebrating the special day of a one year old boy. Many cake makers in Brisbane offer creative and innovative birthday cakes according to gender. Hence you can easily choose a unique boy's birthday cake for your little baby from the vast range. You can also choose the cake according to the theme of the party, if there is one.

5. What about the food?

It is always recommended to keep the food items simple. Include fruits, sandwiches with cheese spread, yogurt, cubes of mild cheese and pasta spirals in the menu. Also, go for some crackers.

So get ready to have a blast in the celebrations for your son's first birthday party by following all the aforementioned tips.

The Growing Trend of Seasonal Wedding Cakes

Nowadays, many brides in Brisbane are inclined to use seasons as the theme of their weddings. And because of this, they often tend to order seasonal wedding cakes in Brisbane for their weddings. By doing this, they achieve the desired theme. After all, several different types of seasonal wedding cakes are available in a myriad of colours, flavours and schemes. Whether its in summer, autumn, winter or spring, cakes for all seasons can be found.   

Cakes for Summer
Celebrating a summer wedding with bright shades only seems right, and bright blues and pinks embellished upon ivory or white cakes is more than perfect for it. Roses, hydrangeas and peonies are really common blossoms used in the bouquet of the bride and also as centerpieces. These can be made out of sugar and used for decoration. Painting vibrant floral designs can be lovely way of frosting. Flavours, however, are generally kept summery and light.

Cakes for Autumn
Chocolate is the most popular and ideal flavour for an autumn wedding cake. Some brilliant ways for decorating and frosting are splashing touches of bronze and gold, embellishing with leaves made out of sugar and dusted with reds and oranges, adding a small amount of sugar and marzipan or miniature fresh pears and apples. Soft icing with cinnamon and apple or coffee flavoured sponge can also be a delightful alternative.

Cakes for Winter

White is generally the dominant colour, with decorations resembling glistening snowflakes, crystals and flowers that are popular designs with a winter theme. Metallic shades achieved by dusting lustre or embellishing with a spray can add a festive look, especially if the wedding is taking place on Christmas. Although the traditional choice with fruits may be more in compliance with the festive spirit, a different flavour can also be opted for to cater to those preferring something light.

Cakes in Spring
Spring is a sign of freshness, so the ideal colours for cakes should be of mild pastel tones and must depict cleanliness. Lily of the Valley, daisies, paper whites and blossoms can be made using fondant and scattered all over the tiers of a cake for a gorgeous look. Simple and fresh flavours such as vanilla or lemon can also be chosen to augment the overall freshness.

9 Cupcakes Decorating Techniques

The look of your cupcakes can be changed. But for that, you need to decorate it very cleverly. However, decorating these small pieces of dessert items has never been that easy. Here are some cupcakes decorating techniques that may help you make these dessert items look more wonderful. 

A piping of flower

The top of a cupcake is perfect for planting a flower. Think of a circular surface as flower nail on which you may pipe the petals. Try out the petal shapes that you like the most for creating your own fantasy flower.

This creates the most accomplished and celebrated decorations. Serrated edges of grass tip make the ridges in icing as it’s squeezed.

It has a tight, swirling look of rose. However, it is achieved in a continuous rotation rather than with a wrapped layer of petal. A single rosette is even used as a candleholder on top of the cupcake.


This is a very cute cupcake decoration, which sits up and grabs the Valentine’s heart. With Valentine’s Day coming near, you can order for this kind of cupcakes in Brisbane from Deborah Feltham. “These luv-bugs are easy to make with ball head, and rosette body, trimmed with licorice as well as icing decorations”, says Deborah Feltham of Creative Cakes, the bakery shop in Brisbane.
Drop flowers

This is a great way of adding flowers quickly. All you need to do is pipe down the drop flowers directly in the buttercream flavor on the cake. But flowers may be sharper when piped in the royal.

It is a very popular icing technique. It is the basis for different borders. Cake decorators usually lift the tip a bit while piping for avoiding that bumpy look.

Script writing

If you want, you can personalize the celebration cake by wring down a message on it. This will have a great impact on the person for whom the cupcake is made for. There is a special technique of adding messages on a cupcake, which only the cake decorators know.

Buttercream rope

It is a technique for finishing the piped baskets with a textured edging. The decoration is perfect for nautical or western themed cakes. 


You can place different kinds of leaves on the top of the cupcake to give it a more realistic garden look and feel. You can ask your cake designer to add piping gel to your icing in order to help keep the leaves from breakage. This kind of cupcake designs are great for world environment day and all occasions for going green.
