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.
