This was made for our daughter Athena's 1st birthday. Athena does not look impressed in this picture, but we think she liked it.
The cake is made up of pastel colored cupcakes arranged into tiers that formed a pyramid. There were 5 tiers. First tier was baby blue, second was yellow, third was orange, fourth was violet, and the fifth was white. We forgot to get a regular birthday candle, so instead we used a votive candle. At least it matched the violet of the fourth tier.
Cupcake cakes are great because there's no cutting involved when serving time comes.
