Sweet Surprise Baby Shower Cake
A precious cake for a precious friend. The baby shower cake was a true work of love and joy for a wonderful friend of my daughters…and to all of us. She has been such a help in so many ways when it comes to my granddaughters. She is a wonderful friend, kindergarten teacher, mother…and I could go on and on. Instead I will just say you are loved and thank you!!
S was expecting her first grandchild and of course my daughter and I wanted to do up something special…
The cake is just a 3 layer round white cake smothered in rich buttercream. On the inside I tinted the cake mix to correspond with the graduated colors of the rosettes on the outside. The cake was really pretty when it was sliced and super tasty.
I hand crafted the pink converse tennis shoes with a half and half mixture between fondant and gum paste. The little converse label on the side is fondant and written on with food markers.
The baby’s name is rolled out fondant shaped into cute letters…along with a heart to dot the “i”…
I have included a picture of the shower so you can get an idea of how pretty it looked…they were almost in tears…and it was a labor of love.
