I had the pleasure of making a Baby Shower Cake for a friend recently. The theme was Zoo Animals along with the color Blue.
The cake was Vanilla w/ Vanilla Buttercream. All of animals were hand drawn then piped onto the cake. I think they turned out really cute! A congratulations message was written along the sides of the cake for the mom-to-be.
By request of the party host, the inside of the cake was triple-layered and each layer was a different shade of blue. Light blue, blue, and dark blue. These created an ombre effect once sliced into. I attended the party and was able to get an interior shot. Score!
The cake was a hit at the party. Both the look and the taste were spot on!
