Let's preface this with me saying that I was not ASKED to make my own baby shower cake, I requested that I be allowed to make the cake. Because it is rare that I get to pick out the concept for a cake, I am usually working within parameters- which is great, but this was a treat.
|The shower theme was "baby woodland animals," and this is what I came up with.|
|A baby in a fox "costume" on a bed of leaves, all on a "stump" of a cake covered in vines and little blue flowers.|
|I had fun putting the "growth rings" on the top, and left room for the monogram of little Mr. Benjamin Douglas White.|
|It was fun not to have to smooth the sides of the cake, a little therapeutic even to make "rough" icing.|
|A close up of the little baby, with his faux fox fur (which is so fun to say, haha). Completely edible, but I wouldn't let Ben sample him after he was removed from the cake, that just seemed too weird.|
