This darling baby shower cake is for my niece, Danelle and her husband, Duke's couple's shower with family. It was awesome to be able to celebrate the coming event because they just moved back here from Hawaii. We haven't been able to celebrate this new family because they are a Coast Guard family and have been in Hawaii since they have been married and had their first son. It is such a blessing to have them back home. Okay it's a cake blog let me blog on.
The cake is red velvet with cheesecake filling and raspberry compote, the top tier shared the same filling but the cake was white velvet. Of course the theme was chosen by Gramma as a surfer theme since Dad is an avid surfer. The cream cheese buttercream was colored with teal and sky blue and I created the ombre effect by simply piping the icing on with a huge icing tip. Sky blue on bottom, then teal in the center and white on top. I then smoothed the sides with a cake blade to the design I liked. Very easy but an effective design. All the decor was made by hand by Cara (daughter), Sandy (sister) & I. The baby butt is a dome mini cake covered in fondant and the legs are RKT covered in fondant. My granddaughter Avi made a coral flower and I used it in the middle of his Hawaiian blankie.
