Congratulations All Around

What do a work party, a birthday, and a baby shower have in common?

Cake

When people order cupcakes for a birthday, I like to jazz them up a bit even if there isn’t technically a theme.  I’ve shown you my basic party cupcakes before…

Next, I decided to do a similar theme for a friend’s birthday, but with a twist.

HANGING POLKA DOTS

At the party the cake made a tightrope walking friend, and thus the cake was called the tightrope cake.

Normally if someone gave me no theme to work with I would go all out polka dot for a baby shower, luckily this client gave me a theme to work from.  From looking at the below picture, I decided to make a cake and matching cupcakes.

All of the designs on the cake were made with buttercream. Yes, I believe things look much cleaner/neater/prettier/perfecter when you use fondant, but honestly I’m not a big fan of it.  I just don’t love the chemically marshmallow taste.

The matching cupcakes: cupcake toppers were made with royal icing and simply placed on a frosted cupcake.

Riley Anne is definitely one spoiled little girl, and she’s not even born yet!
