This past weekend I had the pleasure of making the baby shower cake & biscotti favors for one of my best friends in CT. Another loooong delivery from NJ, but definitely worth it! The theme of the baby’s new room is forest animals & mom to be liked the baby block cake concept, so we decided on a forest animal baby block cake. The cake was red velvet, filled & frosted with vanilla moussaline buttercream. The little owl (my favorite part of the cake), was made of rice crispy treats & decorated in fondant. All block decor was in chocolate.

It was nice to get to actually make another commissioned cake though – especially when I got to go to the event and hear all the comments and critiques and see people eat it! The design was a collaboration between the mommy-to-be and myself. She was debating between baby blocks and a sports themed cake … thus, the sports-themed baby block cake! As my first baby shower cake, I think it came out quite nicely.
