Hot Air Balloon Baby Shower

My sweet, sweet friend was having her first baby and I got to be the one to make for shower cake. The theme was hot air balloons. This seems to be a popular theme right now so I had lots of inspiration online. The only problem? I could not use chocolate due to an allergy.

The day of the party was a hot one and unfortunately, my top layer went all lumpy. But it was still very fun to make! Cake was an new recipe for a dense almond butter cake I've been playing with. Frosting clouds are my signature buttercream, then covered in MMF. Hot air balloons are a fantastic edible play dough sculpted on white candy melt base. Banner is not edible; used lollipop sticks.
