Sweet Baby Cake

Mrs. Lynne contacted us a few months back for a baby shower cake for one of her co-workers.  She sent me the image of the invitation pictured below and wanted to go with a design that matched.

The cake was to feed 75 so we decided on a two tier design.  She wanted a vanilla cake with buttercream icing and blueberry filling.  To keep the cake uniform and not pick two of the three designs used on the invitation, we chose the bottom large polka dot design for both tiers.  She also wanted a baby blue base for the cake to sit on.

We baked two 12″ square and two 8″ square cakes.  We piped a buttercream border to act as a “dam” to keep the filling inside of the cake.  We then poured blueberry filling onto the cake.

We piped buttercream on top of the filling, placed the cake on top and covered with buttercream.  We repeated these steps for the 8″ top tier.  We then stacked the cakes, piped the brown polka dots and pearl borders.  We tied a brown/blue satin ribbon for the topper.  After six hours, the cake was complete.

Thank you, Mrs. Lynne, for the opportunity to make this cake and congrats to the mom and dad to be!  What a blessing.
