This three-tier baby shower cake design was created to highlight a rubber ducky theme and color palette of soft pastels. Enjoy!
Baby Shower Cake

Happy Easter! I had a great weekend of friends, family, and baking… hope you did, too! I did two projects this weekend, one which I’ll post on now, one for later. The first was an experiment in a new technique for me… big, beautiful gum paste flowers. This little pink cake has white gum paste polka dots and a single, handmade ivory bloom. It was a great learning experience - I’m looking forward to doing more handmade sugar flowers on upcoming projects!
I’m so excited about this latest cake… One of the executives at my company and his wife recently adopted a beautiful baby boy, and we’re doing a shower in the family’s honor tomorrow. This cake is a “gift box cake” as made famous by Confetti Cakes in NYC… Such a fun cake to make, and it really makes a statement (or so I think!). The cake itself is sour cream white cake, and the filling/frosting is lemon curd buttercream. I’m also providing vanilla/vanilla cupcakes to go along with the cake.
This was another great baby shower project… this one for a friend of a friend. The momma-to-be requested a lamb theme to align with the shower theme, so I decided to do a handmade little lamb figurine topping the cake. The cake itself was a new recipe: lemon cake with both lemon buttercream and blackberry fillings. I iced with tinted vanilla fondant. The little lamb is fondant and is painted with some edible glitter dust to give it the sheen.
This was a really exciting project for me… A friend of mine asked me to do two cakes for a friend’s baby shower… each with a unique theme. Cake #1 was to be airplane-inspired to honor the pilots in the celebrant’s family (chocolate cake with dark chocolate buttercream & vanilla fondant). Cake #2 was to reflect the shower invitation with little baby feet and a sentimental baby elephant (white cake with vanilla buttercream & vanilla fondant). All of the figures are hand-made/hand-painted fondant!
