Baby shower cake

Aurora & Heather's baby shower cake

Two of my very good friends are pregnant and due within a couple of weeks of each other. I hosted a baby shower brunch for them today and you can't have brunch without cake, right?

I bought these daisy cutters a while ago and thought they were a pretty cool shape - I think they kind of look like fireworks. (Side note: does anyone know what the little plastic piece in this set is supposed to be for? I use it to poke out the petals, but I'm guessing it has a more specific purpose.) My plan was to cover the whole cake in baby blue fondant and then add the shapes, but decided late yesterday that life's too short to drive myself crazy and left it fondant free.

Really like the contrast of the chocolate buttercream with the gumpaste colors and am happy with the way it turned out. And as usual, Doug takes the most awesome photos. He could make a grocery store cake look like something Martha Stewart would envy!

Aw shucks.

I think the plastic piece is a holder for the pieces, maybe? You stack them all up on there.

Pretty cake!

@kristi - ah ha! I have kept them all in their plastic package, so never thought of that. Thanks for letting me know!
