Baby Shower cake

A 3 tiered cake, hexagonal vanilla base, round middle and the little top was Chocolate and this was the stage for the main attraction – Barry the Bear!

This cake was for the lovely Sheelagh who was about to go on Maternity leave. As we already knew she was going to have a beautiful baby girl I was able to make the cake with a little pink. After trawling the internet I combined a few ideas as I wanted the cake to look classy, just like the mum to be whilst also being a little different. I stuck to the traditional white fondant for the base and top with a lovely pink ribbon about them but for the middle layer I wanted something a little different. I do think that piped roses really add to a cake and it makes it stand out a little more than a generic white cake.

Once the cake elements were all decorated I had to decide what exactly I was going to put on the top. Looking at all of the colours of icing I had, I did have a lovely chocolate colour so I decided that a cute little bear would be perfect. Although as I had never made one before I had to trawl the internet to find a video on how to do one. Got it right on my 1st attempt and it even resembled a little bear – I roughed it up a little to bring his fur to life and added the obligatory little patch to him, oh and named him Barry.

Was happy that the cake made it in one piece to the office – although Barry had to have his little ear stuck back on, poor little thing!!
