Baby Shower Cake

This week I made a baby shower cake as a present for my friend, Mary.  Mary and I have known each other since high school, where we played in the orchestra together, and had way too much fun!  She is expecting her very first, a baby girl, and so I made her a delicious cake: alternating layers of white and strawberry cake with strawberry filling and strawberry Swiss meringue buttercream.  I decorated it with homemade vanilla fondant and hand-sculpted sugar paste baby booties and a bow!

Because it was a gift, I decided to experiment and try an inlaid stripe design with a hat-box lid on the bottom layer... it was harder to do than I thought, and it didn't turn out as well as I had envisioned!  Still, it was cute, and delicious, which is the most important part, in my opinion!

Congratulations, Mary!
