This cake was near and dear to my heart because we made it for our cousin's baby shower in August.
Though they were having a girl, they wanted to keep the colors of the shower neutral.
We worked with browns, yellows and soft greens.
On top of the cake are a pair of baby booties made out of gumpaste.
The cake flavors were red velvet and french vanilla with vanilla swiss meringue buttercream :)
Congratulations to the new parents!
Back in August, we were asked by Kim to make a 2-tier cake for her daughter Kayla's 1st birthday. The theme was butterflies and ladybugs :) She sent us an inspiration picture to work from.
We loved making this cake because we got to add little fun, playful butterflies, ladybugs and flowers around the cake!
One of my favorite parts of this cake was the smiling butterfly fondant topper!
The bottom tier of this cake was red velvet with cream cheese filling and the top tier was a chocolate cake with raspberry filling.
We were also asked to make a small butterfly-shaped smash cake for Kayla.
The flavor of the smash cake was pink velvet with banana cream and white chocolate ganache.
Happy Birthday Kayla!
