Goodbye tummy, hello Mummy!

Last Sunday a baby shower was given for my dear friend Norma who is expecting her 1st child in October. I gladly offered to make a cake for the occasion. I had recently brought in some of our chocolate Guinness cake for the girls in the office to try and Norma loved it so we decided to make her baby shower cake in chocolate Guinness.

Since Norma and hubby Fred do not know what the sex of the baby is we decided to stay very neutral with the colour scheme. The pregnant belly cake is one that Mel & I have been wanting to make and just waiting for the opportunity. Norma loved the idea and decided to let us go with it. Both boobs and belly are Chocolate Guinness cake filled with white chocolate cream mousse.

The boobs are 1st covered in skin tone fondant and then draped with yellow fondant for the bodice. We continued the yellow fondant draping over the belly for the skirt. We added a fondant bow with polka dots and a little fondant trim at the neck line and hem of the skirt with a little added luster dust in yellow.

With baby's little foot pushing through no doubt trying to get out into the world and meet his mommy & daddy.

We wish Norma & Fred all the best wishes with their soon new addition.
Always remember;
