Hayden's 1 month
It doesn't feel like that long ago when we got together for Nenny & Winky's baby shower. Their baby boy, Hayden is now just over 1 month old. We got together again at the end of last month to celebrate his 1 month.
A more intimate gathering compared to the shower, means more time to catch up and adore baby Hayden. He's such a good boy - slept throughout his party. hehehe..... There was time we wanted to wake him up so badly so we can he him smile, but he's a baby after all, so we let him sleep :)
It is quite customary for the parents to give out "gifts" in terms of sweets, or cakes in these 1 month celebrations. Nenny ordered some macarons to give out. Nenny, being one very talented graphic designer, found a clear noodle takeaway box to pack them in, and create a custom label for her Hayden.
And as for the cake....
a simple butter cake - inspired by the indonesian lapis surabaya. It combine both vanilla/yellow buttercake with an (indonesian) mocha buttercake, alternated and bounded together with vanilla buttercream.
A variation on the sleeping baby - I put some cloud patterns - as if Hayden is in dreamland.. and what would he dream about?
(who's an amazing photographer btw), toys, milk, milk, milk, .... and milk..
To make it more interesting - I decided to do a checkered pattern on the cake itself. One as taught by one of my aunt back home in Jakarta.
