Baby Shower


Just a quick post. I did this table for a good friend of mine for her baby shower.  I really enjoyed creating this table.  Inspiration for this actually came last minute!  I was at Homegoods store looking for a square cake pedestal. Of course, at Homegoods, you just can't look at one area. So I ended up being in the kids section.  Then I saw those bamboo wooden toys--the airplane and the race car.  The colors match with the shower color theme.  So I just had to get it! Then I thought, well what else can I put on the table?  I saw those old fashioned kid's suitcases and thought it was a perfect place to put the macarons! But of course they only had purple and pink at the store. Wouldn't exactly work for a boy baby shower. Then I remembered I had a couple at home that I can use. Whew! And of course, gotta have the teddy bear for an added touch ;)  By the way, I apologize to those people who saw me at  Homegoods last friday afternoon.  Yes, I was that crazy lady in the aisle by the boys section setting a cake pedestal, suitcases, toys, and a basket on the floor and staring at it for at least 10 minutes!  I needed to visualize my table setting!



 I didn't make a lot since there was a cake.  On the left are cake pops, on the right are macarons.


 I just love that airplane!


 Don't want to brag, but I really love this set up :)


 Heart cake pops.  Somehow, I had a hard time getting this thing done.  While dipping them in the candy coating, the cake just kept falling off the stick! I was gonna use a diaper caddy to put the cake pops in, but I couldn't find a nice one when I was at Homegoods and I didn't get any chance to check out other stores.  I thought this worked anyway.





Last but not least, the cake.  With the trendy chevron pattern.  Since the top tier was only a 6" cake, I couldn't quite fit the name on a straight line.  So I had to alternate putting some letters in the front and back. Maybe I should have made the letters smaller.  Decorations were made of modeling chocolate. That flower by the way, probably doesn't really resemble any real flower.  I just made that up.  You can't really see it, but the petals were actually heart shaped.  I purposely did that because part of the theme of the shower was heart.

  2. Great pix! My personal fave was the cake pops. And let me tell you, I don't even like cake all that much. I had more of those little hearts than I care to admit. You are so talented!
