Cakes – Baby Shower – It’s a Girl – 1997


Another person where I worked, but I never even met her.  She worked in another dept, possibly a different building.  Someone was throwing a baby shower for her and I was asked to make the cake.  She knew the baby was a girl, so that gave me a color scheme.  I also went shopping and got a set of cute little baby-themed cookie cutters – a duck, a rocking horse, a teddy bear, and something else that I apparently didn’t use in this cake.  But I know there were 4 cutters.

Under all that pink and white, it’s a spice cake with cream cheese frosting.  The little white lacy thing it’s on is fondant, and the cake itself is covered with fondant.  The little cutouts are fondant as well, and my horrendous ribbony things are piped with royal icing and cause me to cringe whenever I look at them.

The baby blocks on top of the cake that spell out "BABY GIRL" are the only cool thing (my opinion) from this cake, because they are made entirely of royal icing panels that I piped onto parchment, allowed to dry, and then glued together into 4 blocks with more royal icing.  I think they came out pretty well.

And that’s about all I have to say about that one.
