...of baby showers and 1st birthdays! I seem to be at that point in life where the majority of my friends are having baby showers or their kids are turning 1 (we have started the 2nd birthdays too)! The cakes below certainly keep with this theme!
It was only fitting that I made a cake with a fleur de lis theme for a friend's baby shower on the day before the Saints were in the Super Bowl. Both mom and dad have strong ties to New Orleans and were very happy on Sunday! The cake was inspired by the baby's bedding.
The cake below was for a baby shower. The invitations had a pink and brown theme, so that is what I used as inspiration for the cake.
This cake was for a 1st birthday party that was held at the Houston Zoo. This one was a lot of fun to make!
These cupcakes were for yet another baby shower (I actually attend many of the baby showers I make cakes for. They are now just known as "Champagne Saturdays"). The ladybugs and flowers are made out of fondant and the flower pot on the top tier is cake too!
My adventures in cakes started a long time ago when I worked at Baskin-Robbins as a teenager. I have always loved to bake and decorate cakes, so in early 2009 I took a class to learn some new things. I found that my only artistic ability seems to come from a frosting bag or ball of fondant!
Now if someone could only tell me the secret to resisting cake scraps, all would be right in the world!
