My "cousin" had her baby shower this past Saturday and my sister was supposed to make the cake but ended up getting a cold right before so my mom asked me if I could do it.

I was going to try fondant, but decided that it was probably too big of a task for me to learn the day before I needed to have it done!

So here's what I came up with:

3 layers, chocolate-vanilla-chocolate
In between it is filled with yummy raspberry preserves
I dyed the frosting and vanilla cake a light blue

I used candy chocolate to draw the circles and pregnant momma, then covered the top edges and sides with chocolate sprinkles.

On the very bottom, I used a cute ribbon in blues and brown Smiley

What do you think Smiley

Getting back into crafting! Follow along with me on my blog and see what I come up with! Smiley

yum!  I thought this was a pillow when I clicked the thumbnail!  Nicely done!  It is the perfect shade of blue too!
