Shabby Chic

This is the year of babies in Mike's (my fiance) family. Three of his cousins are pregnant right now. Woah! And one of them, Karyn, is a fan of my cakes so she wanted me to make one for her baby shower.

She's picky. lol And that's alright! She gave me some suggestions like stripes, flowers and she wanted the letter "R" on top. She also told me a few things she didn't want on the cake. No animals, animal prints, purple and a limited amount of pink. All these requirements actually made it easy to figure out the design. I went for a shabby chic theme with green, yellow, white and some pink. I was able to incorporate everything she suggested. I also added some pearl dust for a little shimmer.

I LOVE this cake. Karyn loved it, too. It was definitely a hit at the baby shower!


  1. Beautiful! What is the R made out of? Gum paste? Do you ever use color flow?
