Cool Shabby Chic Baby Shower Cake

This baby shower cake was made for a little girl’s baby shower.  The momma wanted a shabby chic, damask themed shower.  I decided on elegant and simple with a little bit of girly thrown in.

The cake is a 3 layer 12 inch on bottom and a 3 layer 9 in cake on top.  I filled the layers with butter cream and sprinkles (it’s what she wanted) and then in butter cream.  Each tier was then covered with fondant and decorations were added.  I made the baby shoes out of fondant and let them dry for a few days and then laid a grey piece of fondant out to look like a baby blanket.  I incorporated the damask pattern just under the baby’s initials (behind the name plate) and under the shoes.

This was a fun cake to make and one of my more elegant/clean line cakes.  I really enjoyed it.  I have two boys so I don’t ever get to make pretty girl cakes, so I was really looking forward to this one.  It was also one of the biggest/heaviest ones I have made so far.  It was a big hit.
