Another cake

So, for some unknown reason, I volunteered myself to make the cake for my sister-in-law's baby shower. I've only ever decorated one cake, and it wasn't that pretty...I have no idea what I was thinking. So, I searched the internet for baby shower cakes (with SIL's help) and finally came across one we liked. We happened to find it the day of the shower, while the cake was cooling (I'm such a procrastinator). Realizing I could not do it with just icing because my cake decorating skills are just not that great, I decided to make homemade fondant. I wish I had gotten a picture. Anyway, here it is in all its mediocre glory.

I guess it's not too bad for cake #2.

A closer look.

The baby's head is made from fondant...kind of orange fondant.

And here's the beautiful mommy!

She was very pleased with the cake, and it sure was tasty!
