Baby Safari

1 Oct

I can’t express how much I enjoy making baby shower cakes, especially when it’s a little off the everyday pink and blue affair. This was a gorgeous design my customer brought me for her  sister’s baby shower. The cake itself is pistachio filled with raspberry buttercream and fresh raspberries. (I wish I could have sliced this cake and taken a shot of the inside.) Gorgeous, I tell you with a minty green cake and pink speckled buttercream with little red blotches of raspberries. You can imagine, right?

This is a 10″ cake topped with an 8″ cake. Both covered in fondant. The animals are gumpaste cutouts. Yes, I totally noticed the air bubble forming right in front of the giraffe on the bottom tier. I didn’t see it till I took the pic, and manage to smooth it out before pick-up.

We contemplated sticking a mini bottle of Jameson’s whiskey out of the cake as an homage to the baby’s future name, but I left the mini bottle off to the side, in case the expectant mother didn’t appreciate the intrusion on this baby-themed cake.
