Last week I was given the challenge of making not one, but two separate cakes for a single baby shower. The parents do not want to find out the gender of the baby, so the grandmother, and hostess, had me make two cakes…one for a girl and one for a boy. Decorations for the party included pink and green camouflage, so I incorporated a little bit of that into the cakes.
This baby shower was unique in that it was for Dad rather than Mom, thus the inscriptions on the front of each cake. Some of the decorations on top of the cakes also reflected Daddy’s interests, like music, hunting, and LSU football.
I love how all the decorations turned out, except for the fact that I forgot to put one of them on the girl cake. I made the cutest little credit card (it was a Mastercard to be exact), and totally forgot to add it to the cake. I even used the baby’s due date as the credit card number. The Daddy is a banker, and the card was supposed to be a nod to that. I’m so bummed.
The babies turned out to be a little on the chubby side, but that’s ok. Nobody ever says, “Aw, what a cute little scrawny baby!”
The most fun I had while making these cakes had to be in sculpting this tree. The whole process took only about two minutes. I just rolled a small cone of green fondant, then clipped all around the cone with the tips of some very sharp scissors. I love the way it turned out.
