It’s been harder and harder to find time to keep this blog updated … this SweetElement baby shower cake was made on May 22nd for my boss’s surprise baby shower here at work – and somehow it got to be June 9th before it got posted! The expecting couple opted not to know what the sex of the baby was, thus the yellow & green ducky theme.
The bottom cake layer was a chocolate devil’s food cake filled with pastry cream and frosted in buttercream. The top cake was my boss’s favorite – red velvet cake filled with cream cheese frosting and frosted in buttercream. All decorations were fondant.
I’m happy to report that baby Trevor was born on June 2nd & mom and baby are comfortably back at home!
I just realized I never posted this cake I delivered right before the holiday madness started. I thought this was one of the cutest ideas – a jungle themed baby shower! This was a ton of fun to make – and even though they were completely edible, I was happy to hear that the animals all survived the day uneaten! They are just too cute to eat, don’t ya think?
This SweetElement creation was made of yellow cake, filed and frosted with vanilla buttercream, decorated in chocolate and fondant animals.
The giraffe was definitely my favorite – look at his mane!
Here’s the latest cake from SweetElement … a yellow cake filled and frosted with chocolate hazelnut buttercream and topped with a Winnie the Pooh Baby bib.
Here’s the latest of the cakes … a baby block cake for 16 people for a delivery tomorrow morning. Chocolate devil’s food cake filled and frosted with vanilla buttercream and decorated with chocolate plates.
It was nice to get to actually make another commissioned cake though – especially when I got to go to the event and hear all the comments and critiques and see people eat it! The design was a collaboration between the mommy-to-be and myself. She was debating between baby blocks and a sports themed cake … thus, the sports-themed baby block cake! As my first baby shower cake, I think it came out quite nicely.
The cake details are as follows:
Each cube was 6″ x 6″ made out of …
