Elephant and Buttons

Recently, I was asked to make a small cake for a baby shower.  I think my favorite part of cake decorating is the planning.  It’s so fun to come up with different ideas, lay out the colors, designs, shape, etc.  Since the mom-to-be didn’t have a theme I was given creative license to create whatever I wanted.  Sometimes too much freedom can be daunting.  The only thing I had to go on was that the nursery was blue, gray, and lime green and the sex of the baby is unknown.

So, here’s what I came up with.  After browsing pinterest I decided I wanted to make buttons to go on the cake.  I wasn’t sure exactly how to incorporate them, but I thought they were adorable.   I loved how the elephant came out on a previous cake, so I thought it would be cute to make another one holding a lime green balloon.
