Forest Animals Baby Block Cake

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.

Latest Cake …

I know I’ve been absent from here a *lot* lately … have been going through a rough patch and feel totally not myself. I’ll explain further in another post soon … promise.

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.

The cake details are as follows:
