Whale of a time Dessert Table
I worked on this table for my nephew’s first birthday some time ago. In Korean tradition, it is called Doljanchi or Dol for short. It is a large celebration, usually with traditional Korean rice cakes, fruits and decorative pillars very much in the style of a centerpiece table. Because my brother’s family lives in Maryland, I was limited in what I could bring with me from New York. The theme was based on his invitations which was a friendly whale. Please see the cake below.
This table is mixed with candies as well as Korean rice cakes. I added some orange creamsicle candy sticks, rock candy, ribbon candy, blue twizzlers, pumpkin spice malted milk balls, shell candies, chocolate covered sunflower seeds, and the biggest hit of all the blue gummy sharks! For course, being a child’s birthday cupcakes and cake pops were in order.
The whale is a replica of the whale on the invitations, including the “1” spraying out of the spout.
