So I used that as a place to start...
I found out from the AMAZING host what colors and decor she was using. She told me it was multicolor, cirlces and polka dots...
So this is what I came up with!
The top layer is chocolate with strawberry/cream cheese filling... And the bottom layer is yellow cake with lemon icing filling!
Had some left over cake and fondant so I made a small little cake and sent to Allie Jo's 1st birthday party with my mother in law. Figured it might as well get eaten.. Wanted to get more practice with making the gift bow.
So anyways it was about a whole day's (on and off) work. But I have been planning and thinking about what I should do for about 5-6 weeks now. So that makes it easy when I have the time to plan for it.
I have a few more events coming up that will help with practice... After all this is only my 3rd cake, so I will need it.
I will say, that this was alot more work than usual b/c I ( with a TON OF HELP from my husband) made the fondant. It's actually marshmellow fondant. So it taste TONS better. And I made my own butter cream icing which tastes so much better too. The MMfondant was a little different to work with, but with practice I think that I will get it down easier and easier.
I'll post some pics of the whole shower later.
