Baby Cake

Just a quick little post about a quick little cake.

Our cake club volunteered to make centerpiece cakes for the Ohio ICES Day of Sharing this Sunday (Sept. 27 in Columbus, OH... details are HERE.) In case you don't know ICES is an international cake decorating organization and a "Day of Sharing" is just that, a day to get together with other cake decorators for demonstrations, classes, and fellowship.

Anyway, our cake club chose baby shower themed cakes and this was my contribution. It's covered in buttercream and decorated with fondant accents and a little bit of piping. I impressed the fondant accents with a stamp, and was inspired by My Sweet and Saucy and her totally adorable cakes.

Somehow, things like those wonky (as in not-straight) lines never show themselves until you bring out the camera, to be captured forever in film (or pixels, as the case may be).

OK, thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

It looks amazing!

I love how the buttercream is so smooth - and your cake doesn't show through at all.

Of course, this is why you are a professional and I'm not.
