It seems like everybody is pregnant nowadays in our church (notice a little hyperbolic here), and it's a good thing because that means I get to play with more cute babies, yay!
It was one of our church's friends, Silvi's baby shower party a week after baby Max's birthday! I was going to take a break from fondant cake after Max's cake, but how can I say no to the opportunity to create a cute baby shower cake?? Since I was in a figurine mode, I planned on using baby figurine as well. Now, when I was in the middle of Ma'x birthday cake madness, I heard that a few of my friends are actually quite good in playing with playdough. I was really excited when I found this out as I can use their help for the cake!! So, when we had a dinner together at one of our friends' house, I brought the fondant and the tools for them to play around. They were having so much fun with it and I was too watching them, hohoho.... (evil laugh).
Afterwards, I got a few baby figurines, there's baby with mohawk, sitting baby, and the sleeping baby that I decided to use on the cake. This figurine along with the tiny teddy bear is a courtesy of my friend Cecyl. I was going to put a smile on the teddy bear but the fondant has hardened. But it was okay since it was supposedly to be a stuffed animal anyway. I went with the clean and simple design for the cake. I knew I wanted baby blue color, so here's what I came up with.
The cake inside was vanilla cake with a layer of fragrant blueberry filling and cream cheese frosting. I love the combination of blueberry and cream cheese, it's one of those things that compliments each other.
Anyways, big CONGRATULATIONS and HUGS for Silvi and Ronald! :)
