I made this baby shower cake or “sprinkle” cake for the daughter of a friend who was having her second baby. The nursery was done in pink/white/brown with touches of hot pink, and brown zebra stripes. That was part of the reason for this design.

I got lots of inspiration and information for making this cake from a website called Pink Cake Box. They make AMAZING cakes. This is my third fondant covered cake, and actually the third cake I have ever decorated. Everything I have learned has been online through the websites I have listed and just by Googlling the subject.

Both tiers of this cake are two layers. The top layer is yellow cake (I used box mixes) with homemade buttercream frosting, and the bottom tier is chocolate cake with homemade peanut butter buttercream frosting (recipes on the Wilton website).

There are dowels in the bottom tier in order to support the top tier, and there is a long dowel down the center of the whole cake to help keep it stable. The fondant is all homemade marshmallow fondant.

Hope the mother to be loves it. I will find out later today!
