A Nursery for a Baby Shower

baby shower, nursery-theme, cake, cot and all its extras - the lace, blankets, cushions and all - are hand made of sugar paste and completely edible

This cake and cupcake order was for Desh and Niven’s baby shower – a red velvet cake with cream cheese icing, decorated with edible lace and my nursery-themed cake topper.
The entire cake topper is edible, and I made it on its own little cake board so it could be removed from the cake and kept.

The cupcakes for the shower were an assortment of some of my favourites!
The strawberry heaven is of course a fresh strawberry cupcake filled with a white chocolate and shortbread truffle topped with a strawberry cream cheese icing and shortbread crumbs.

A Little Girl’s Baby Shower Cake

My brother and his sweetheart are expecting a little girl in December, the first little girl in our family after my siblings and I all having boys – eight of them – and this weekend we had a shower for them.
Instead of buying them a gift for the shower, I made them a cake.

Everything on the cake is edible, including the sugar lace! The cot itself, the blankets, cushions, mat and teddy bear are all made of sugar paste.
I am thrilled with the end result! The edible lace worked perfectly as embellishments for the blanket and pillows, and I added pearls to the lace collars on the cake.
I ended up having to put last minute “feet” on the cot ’coz when I put it on the cake the first time it went through the sugar paste cover!

Baby Shower Cake

Gugu ordered a baby shower cake from me!
This is an extra tall cake – layers of chocolate and vanilla cake, alternately filled with caramel and cream cheese icing, and covered with caramel cream cheese before being decorated.
This cake was for a baby shower where the sex of the baby had not yet been revealed so its not specifically pink or blue.
