Last week I had the wonderful opportunity to make a baby shower cake for the talented lady who designed my logo!
This cake has been by far one of my favorite cakes to make. The mother-to-be is having twins and requested a “two peas in a pod” theme. I was ecstatic to design this cake as I’ve never done one for a twins’ baby shower.
This was a two tier vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream, covered with white fondant. I decorated the bottom tier with a whole bunch of circles of different shades of green fondant to create an ombre effect.
Here’s a fun fact about the cake; I had one whole day to make the entire cake. Now if you don’t know how my cake making process goes, I basically bake the cakes, let them cool overnight, and then do all the frosting and fondant the next day. If there’s a cake topper I need to make, I usually make it at least a few days before I bake the cakes, so that it can dry and set completely. I happened to be quite busy during the exact week the cake was due, so I only had one day to bake the cakes, decorate, and make the cake topper. Thankfully I pushed through, and was able to finish in time!
Getting back to the cake design, I had to make a two peas in a pod cake topper. This cake topper was so adorable and went with the whole theme so well.
I also made a couple of babyish items with some extra fondant. The vines and flowers I added made the whole cake complete.
The baby shower itself was the cutest thing ever and I was able to get a few shots of it.
All of the decorations were perfect and soo cute!
This cake was a whole lot of fun and I’m so glad I got the chance to make it!
As always, thanks for reading and happy baking,
