Hooo's having a baby?
This cake was for a baby shower where the guest of honor (well, in a month or so) will have a nursery full of owls, blues, and greens. Yes folks, it's a boy! Wyatt James Harder is scheduled to make his debut on December 1st and his mommy's baby shower was today!
The hosts of the shower (the mommy-to-be's sister and best friend) wanted a cake that would not only match the theme of baby Wyatt's nursery but also that would match the invitations and theme of the shower. You can see the invitation in the background. They were so cute and ordered from Josie Jean Designs. You can see her work and order more of your own here.
This cake was an 8 inch round white cake with vanilla buttercream filling. It had fondant accents for the dots, branches, leaves, and this oh so cute little owl! It was just enough for the shower guests and for the mommy-to-be to have two slices! Hey, she's allowed!
Here's the cake in all it's glory on the serving table at the shower. The hosts did a great job of pulling the colors and theme throughout the entire shower and this cake just topped the whole party off. Oh and in case you were wondering, yes I was at the shower. The mommy-to-be is a friend of mine and I was so pleased that she wanted me to make the cake for her! CONGRATULATIONS BRIDGETT!
