Baby shower!

This past Saturday Mel attended a baby shower thrown for her hubby Phil's cousin. Though this cake was a last minute decision it turned out pretty cute.  There really was no theme involved they only wanted it to be in the shape of a baby crib with the colours of blue and yellow. The blue because they know the baby is going to be a boy!

The cake which is the bed itself, is vanilla cake filled with white chocolate mousse and fresh sliced strawberries.

Having the grand kids all last week and trying to get this cake ready for a Saturday noon pick up, I blundered on the foot of the bed a bit.  Notice no direct pictures, but as you can see here I cut the foot board a little short, should have been same height as the head board. Ooops......anyway the client loved it and really that's all that matters in the end.

The foot board, head board and side rails are all made from gum paste and painted with edible brown food colour with a little added vodka to give it a shiny look and help it dry faster.  The bedding is all fondant with added sugar pearls.  The little mobile is made from a dowel with wire and gum paste hearts. Winnie is just a print mounted on some fondant.

We wish the Mommy to Be all the best with her
soon to be bundle of joy!
