Baby Shower Cake- Averi

A Baby Shower cake for Miss Averi Byrd, for her Mommy's baby shower. Can't wait to meet her soon!
Yellow Cake, Cream Cheese Icing, Royal icing stars, fondant cutout "A", and candy Sixlet trim.
The letter, paint splatters, and stars all came from the shower invitation.

First "Belly Cake"

I was super excited, and a little nervous for an order for my first belly cake, complete with pink Realtree camo on the 'shirt'

This is also the first time using fondant to completely cover a cake, it worked out really well- not as scary as I thought
Covered the torso separate from the base cake, let it set, & painted the camo with food-coloring before adding to the base.
I really like how the bow turned out too.

Ta-dah! Pregnant Belly Cake. I am looking forward to having more orders for these!

Pigs in the Mud Cake

The birthday twins requested yellow cake with my Nana's chocolate cream cheese icing for their birthday, well there is only so much decorating you can do with brown icing. haha. Here are their "Pigs in the Mud"

Added 'grass' on the sides of the cake for a little more color, the icing was soft so it ended up a little on the "seaweed" side.

One silly pig with his tush in the air, peeking out of the mud

Pig #2 floating on his back in the mud puddle

There was debate over which pig was which twin, I had to tell them to decide. :)

Owl Cookies

Owl cookies to use as baby shower favors

I made the cute little owl transfers separate and placed them on the wet cookie icing.

And one "Thank you" cookie per bag.

Butterfly Birthday Cake *Updated*

The birthday girl requested: pink, purple, butterflies, and flowers.

I knew I wanted the cake to be bright pink, so to add pink flowers I made light pink roses.

Marshmallow fondant butterflies fluttered across the cake
Yellow Cake, Pink & purple cream cheese icing- and one pleased Birthday Girl.
Jayde's little sister liked her cake so much that she requested one just like it for her birthday!

There were a few different details, but I made sure the butterflies and icing colors were exactly the same.

One change was the purple flowers, did a different version of a "carnation" and added a little sparkle.
