Background story (because it's my blog and I like to talk!): I met this amazing woman through blogging who is adopting a baby boy. The baby will be born soon so it was time for a shower! I was so excited to make the cake but like I said, she's completely wonderful so no ordinary shower would do. The shower hostess - of comparable fabuosity - selected a Rock the Cradle theme. My cakes are "cute" and she wanted something that was more along the lines of "awesome." And in fondant. I really tried not to panic.
Everything is edible, except the baby booties on top. It's hard to tell from the photos but the cake was a sparkly metallic silver. And I have to say...I think I am in love with these roses!
Inside, the cake was a new combination that I call "Neapolitan," made from one layer of dark chocolate cake and one layer of french vanilla with strawberry filling. It was nice enough but I might tweak it a little.
