I made this cake for my sil. It is a white chocolate cake filled with strawberry buttercream and covered in marshmallow fondant. If anyone wants recipes, let me know and I will post them.

The bottom layer had abc and 123, top layer had baby bottles, botties, rattles around the sides. I also used real ribbon.

the fondant is actually made out of marshmallows, the only extract i added to it was almond.
Here is the recipe I used from http://cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopict-4266-mmf.html+recipe

Marshmallow fondant
1 cup mini marshmallows
1 tbsp water
1 1/2- 1 3/4 cup powder sugar

Place marshmallows in a standard 1 cup measuring cup and push down and pack them in. Place in a microwave safe bowl and add the water. Put in the microwave for about 20 seconds. Just long enough for them to soften and puff up. Take out and stir with a spoon until it is combined well. At this point it looks kind of soupy. Then add the sugar and mix and fold until all is incorporated and it is no longer sticky. I take it out of the bowl when it gets to the point where most of the sugar is incorporated and I knead it in my hands. This takes roughly about 5-7 minutes. Take a fondant roller or a regular rolling pin and roll out just as you would Wilton's fondant. You can get this fondant almost paper thin and it also repairs well. It's cheap, easy to work with, and tastes great too.
