Sweet Baby Cake

And now for something completely different...

A friend asked me to make a cake for her co-worker's last day before she left to have her baby.  She didn't give me any instructions other than "Can you make a cake for a boy baby shower/goodbye we'll miss you party?"  No problem! LOL..I had to think about it for a while, and came up with this:


The cake is devil's food, filled with crushed Oreo cookie filling.
 The frosting, fence and grass are vanilla buttercream frosting.

The rolled roses, sign, mama and baby sheep are made of fondant and sugar paste with royal icing accents.  I used an edible food writer marker for the eyes. Here's a closeup:

This is the first time I got to try sugar paste figures, and I am really happy with how they turned out :) Just have to make them a few days in advance so they harden enough to handle.

I hope they like it! 

Thanks for stopping by today!
