Since SIL was still in the hospital at the time of her second baby shower I wasn’t sure if I’d even need the baby block cupcake toppers I’d been working on for a few days. But SIL’s mom decided that “… the show must go on!” So we ended up having the shower even though the mother-to-be wasn’t there. We even played games. No further comment on that.
As probably expected, I made the cake+cupcake tier. I’m “this” close to saying DUH? but I won’t b/c that wouldn’t be very nice. And I’m a nice chick.
Since I decided you can’t have a girl baby shower without some pretty pretty princess pink, I made strawberry cupcakes and a red velvet 6 inch round cake. I’m sure you can imagine that the red velvet flavor was at the suggestion of my Hubs. Although he claims it had nothing to do with it being his absolute FAVORITE flavor. Right… husband. Right.
You can find the recipe for strawberry cupcakes (here) or (here). If you wanna get that pink factor like mine, take Debbie of Smitten Kitchen‘s advice and add a couple drops of pink food gel to the batter. Makes about 36 cupcakes.
Oops W was suppose to be green but I made a boo boo. Shhh… don’t tell.
Up close and personal
I pink puffy heart layered cake innard pictures. Don’t you?
Obviously I need a little more practice covering cakes with fondant (see the bumps, rolls and sag? I think I’ll just stick with my day job.) not to mention bringing a better camera instead of iPhone pictures but overall I was happy. And Hubs was
happy ECSTATIC that no guests wanted to cut the cake so he got to eat 4 layers of red velvet himself.
What a sweet gig, eh?
