Today was another celebration for the soon arrival of Melissa's little pink bundle of joy. Well maybe not pink as Melissa has decorated the baby's room in yellow & lilac. We had recently done a baby shower cake, twinkle twinkle little star... for Tiffany, Melissa's sister. They are both due within 3 weeks of each other. Tiffany, who is also a good friend of Mel's, asked us to make this cake for Melissa who's shower is today.
The cake requested is our Guinness chocolate cake which we filled with white chocolate mousse and chocolate ganache. We were asked to include yellow flowers and purple butterflies. The butterflies are made from fondant and dusted with edible lilac shimmer while the daisies are made from fondant.
The little baby is made from gum paste and has a little lilac diaper on and a yellow flower in her hair. She is resting in a fondant/tylose mix sun flower.
The saying "Sugar n' spice and all things nice....." is added by fondant letters dusted in edible lilac shimmer.
We wish Melissa and her husband all the best and congratulations on the soon new arrival.
