I didn't have much time, but this is the cake I decorated for Mason's first birthday. My mom made the cake and two cupcakes. I cut the tops off the cup cakes and cut them in half. Two of the halves became the eyes, and the others the feet.
I don't know what recipe she used, but I can tell you that she made it from scratch. The frosting recipe is a butter cream recipe that I got from here: Hoosier Homemade
