Aloha baby!

Our dear friend Tiffany contacted us for this next cake which was for last Sunday the 6th of July. Her husband's cousin is expecting and they planned on a Hawaiian / Luau baby shower or tropical themed to help celebrate the upcoming event. Tiffany sent us a few ideas on designs but told us to just go with it, only criteria she wanted no grass skirts or coconut boobs, LOL.....only bright tropical colours.

This was such a fun cake to make. It sort of evolved as I started making some of the elements the night before like flowers, sea shells, our cute little baby and the surf boards.  And apparently when it comes to flavours for this family they want nothing other than their favourite "Chocolate Guinness". They are definitely hooked! and of course the two tiers are filled with white chocolate mousse, but as an added surprise I alternated the fillings on the bottom tier to include a filling layer of chocolate mousse.

This time around our little gum paste baby has fallen asleep on a surf board surrounded by gum paste flowers, sea shells and sand (golden brown sugar is used for the sand).

A few gum paste rocks marking the start of a water fall cascading down to the water tier below and pooling is a bit of a splash.

The top tier done in a vibrant lime green is surrounded by fondant palm trees and sand with a touch of bright flowers here and there.

We hope that the baby shower was a great success and that everyone enjoyed the cake as much as we enjoyed making it. We wish the Mommy to be all the best with her new little bundle of joy who will make his or her debut soon!
