Tracy's Baby Carriage Theme Shower

This was the family baby shower for my sister in law Tracy.  The theme was baby carriage and of course PINK!  I love it!  Here is the cake I made...

The tier sizes are 10" and 8" rounds.  The topper was made by using the Wilton ball pan.

The bottom tier was two layers of almond-vanilla cake with cream cheese filling and two layers of chocolate cake with chocolate fudge filling.
The middle tier was two layers of blueberry lemon cake with lemon buttercream filling and two layers of strawberry cake with strawberry buttercream.

The top tier was made from rice krispie treats molded into the Wilton ball pan with one of the halves cut in half.  I then covered it in modeling chocolate to get a smooth finish and then covered that in marshmellow fondant.  The pink details are made from 50/50 pink marshmellow fondant and gumpaste.  The roses were made of the 50/50 mixture as well. 

The rest of the shower details.....

  2. Can I just say that I think you are absolutely amazing? You've got a lot of talent.

  3. Everything is so pretty! How many fondant roses did it take to do the cake? I would love to attempt this cake, but not sure if I have the time to make all the roses -

  4. Superb baby shower!! I seriously loved this cake. It’s really looking adorable. Want to make my niece’s baby shower really memorable. Have booked one of NYC venues for the day. Will be taking ideas from one site. Really happy for the day.
