Oh Baby!

One of my bestest friends, Jenn, is getting ready to have a baby. Very, very soon in fact! While helping with the planning of the baby shower, I volunteered to make the cake. And I said I'd make it match the invitations. Why do I bite off more than I can chew? I didn't procrastinate as usual, and actually made the cake a day in advance. I have a tendency of waiting until a few hours prior but decided against the stress this time around. Jenn didn't want the cake too girly or pink or baby-ish which is why I opted for the invitation look-a-like. Drum roll please........

The cake was chocolate with vanilla frosting and the lettering was done with fondant that I colored and then wrote on. The flowers were fondant as well. Fondant tastes disgusting but it sure is fun to sculpt and play with:) The cake was a hit and I can't wait to do more!
