Gaaah - I can't believe I've never blogged about this Shabby Chic Baby Shower Cake. I realized it when I was writing about the Orange & Silver Mehndi Henna Cake that I did last weekend.
I've shared this cake over and over again on Facebook and I didn't realize I'd never posted a full blog post about it.
So without further delay, let me share the details of this cake with you!
Shabby Chic Baby Shower Cake
It was 5", 7" and 8" round tiers. The top tier was strawberry cake, the middle tier was vanilla cake and the bottom tier was chocolate with mini chips. It was filled and frosted with vanilla buttercream, then all of the decorations were done with homemade marshmallow fondant.
The teacup, flowers, and jewelry on the top tier were real. They were provided to me by the baby shower host once I got to the location with the cake. On the top tier was edible cake lace made with this Sugar Veil lace mat and Geraldine's Edible Wonder Lace mix.
And let me tell you - that cake lace stuff is not as easy as it looks to use! I think I made three sheets of it before I got one that was usable.
For the middle tier, I used a plaque cutter for the middle tier, then funky alphabet cutters to do the monogram letters. There were also tiny ribbon roses with leaves cut with mini cutters. Then I added pearl borders on each tier using a pearl mold.
For the bottom tier I individually cut the strips of homemade marshmallow fondant to make the ruffles/petals. I wish I could've shown you the whole room, but I did take a few pictures - it was beautifully decorated!
There were ribbons and pearls and flowers and lace and gosh - so much shabby-chic gorgeousness!
The table itself was covered in tiny tea party decorations and lace and pink & gold glitter mason jars!
So, I think I covered most of the details of the cake. Please leave a comment if you have questions or if I overlooked anything!
Love the Shabby Chic theme?

I'm so happy to have found your blog! I was looking a recipe for hard candy apples, and used yours!!
Thank you for sharing your knowledge!!
Could you please tell me how you made those pretty ruffles?? I'm going to make a cake for an under the sea tea party for 8 eight year olds and they could mimic sea waves!!
It's going to be an 8 and 6 inches cake.
Thank you thank you!!
Thanks so much for stopping by the blog! The ruffles are made similar to this tutorial, but instead of using the ball tool to thin and ruffle the edges, use your fingers to smooth and soften the edge of each strip to achieve the look of this cake. https://rosebakes.com/how-to-do-fondant-ruffles-on-a-cake/ Hope that helps!
Beautiful. Pinning this dream of a cake.
So beautiful and creative!
