The mom prefers a color scheme of light blue, cream and gold so we incorporated those colors into the cake. The design for the cake was inspired by a baby shower cake made by Melody Brandon at www.mysweetandsaucy.com
The top layer is chocolate mud cake covered with dark chocolate ganache and then decorated with marshmallow fondant (cream color for top.....it looks a little yellow on the picture.) The "yellow" accents were painted with edible gold dust but the picture doesn't show it well.
And the bottom layer is pound cake with white chocolate ganache decorated with a light blue marshmallow fondant. The feet were drawn on with edible marker.
I learned some things making this cake....still not as sharp as I'd like but I was pleased with the overall outcome.
Thanks for looking!!!
