Our sister recently told everyone that she is expecting a baby girl. And we’re all thrilled, not only because she will  be the first to have a baby in our family but because this means we get to make her a cake several cakes for her baby shower! WOOOHOOOO. Yeah people, this is what we do for fun around here; eat cake scraps for breakfast and frosting shots when nobody’s looking. Any excuse to jump aboard the sugar and butter train will do.

But we’ve also been creating a lot of baby shower cakes and desserts lately. So it only seemed natural that our next collection would revolve around babies too. This collection is like my own personal Frankenstein and if I had things my way it would never be finished and I would continue to come up with more designs we could add to it. Thank goodness for Erin and her ability to grab my hand and not let go until she dragged me all the way out of the kitchen (by the way, she’s either really been working out lately or I’ve gone soft from all the frosting).

It was really important for us balance this collection between fondanted cakes and buttercream cakes. We wanted to show that even buttercream cakes can have a huge impact at your party.

It was bound to happen… I love the ruffle design so much that once we saw it was possible online to stack a ruffled cake, we started to stack away.Ruffle cakeI doubt anyone can really tell here but the sugar figurine of our baby girl has thunder thighs and that’s just the way we like her. I guess cake really does go straight to the thighs…

We had been wanting to do a rosette cake for a long time now and I am so glad we did one. This cake is coming so close to replacing my love for our ruffled cakes.

Though you can’t really tell here, these little booties were given a heavy dusting and a pearl finish. Adding a sparkly pearl finish is like bedazzling; it’s addicting people!

Our last cake in the Baby Love series is just as dreamy as the first. We styled three square cakes into baby blocks to add a little movement to any dessert table.  I also have no idea why the chicky is 2x the size of the little lamb? Hostile takeover?

What followed next was utter cake madness, a parade of cupcakes… These teddy bear cupcake toppers are among our most popular design and they are always the first to go. We really love the coloring on these teddy bears, right down to the rosy cheeks and button nose.

Love the color combination of the peanut butter frosting and the chocolate cupcakes. The only thing that makes these even better; that they’re bite size. Chocolate cupcakes with peanut butter frosting

The lighting here really doesn’t do these little monogrammed cupcake topper’s justice. They were the softest pink and so girly. Monogram Cupcakes

Our Baby Love Collection

Once we were finished photographing our entire collection, we kind of just threw it all on one table to get an idea of how much sugar and buttercream we were really working with. The answer; A LOT.
