|A very pink Baby Shower Cake|
This sweet bird baby shower cake was designed based the invitation. Obviously, a baby girl was on the way. It is a very spring-like design, with a blushing pink bunny, butterfly, lots of flowers, and a bird in a beautiful, blooming tree. I took the liberty of turning the smallish bird into a much larger pair of birds – a mother and a father bird who were waiting anxiously for their precious egg to hatch!
The cake is a double height, 7″ round cake, also called a double barrel cake. This means that it is really two tiers of cake that are both the same size, separated by a hidden cardboard round. The two tiers are frosted and then decorated as though they were a single, very tall tier!
Inside, the cake was tinted different shades of pink for an “ombre” effect. If you had a slice, you’d see that the 4 layers of cake in the slice was each colored a slightly different shade of pink in ascending order! The effect was very dramatic and oh so girly. I was very happy with how this cake turned out. I hope you like it too!!
