I made this cake and cake truffles for Idrees's birthday. The cake is blue velvet with chocolate buttercream and a chocolate buttercream ricotta filling. The decorations are royal icing transfers that I made to match the hanging decorations and paper goods. The truffles are the same blue velvet cake covered in a rich semisweet chocolate ganache. Both were enjoyed and it was a rewarding experience to make my little boy's first birthday cake.
