Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice Baby Shower Cake for Twin Girls. Now that's a mouthful huh?
And this cake was a handful of work... but it was truly worth it when it all came together! Nikki was having twin baby girls and she wanted everything baby and "sugar & spice" that we could get onto the cake! I also did many of the decorations in pairs... one for each girl!
I couldn't begin to tell you about all the details on this cake, but I'm going to show you lots of pictures and if you have questions - please leave a comment!
There were baby pins, buttons, rattles, lots of candy and sweets, cinnamon rolls (for spice!), chocolate, ruffled flowers....
The cake was 6" strawberry cake, 9" round dark chocolate cake, and 12" round white almond sour cream cake. Except for the brown (it was Satin Ice), all decorations were made from homemade marshmallow fondant and gum paste.
Here are some of the "sugar" and "spice" items up close...
First a fondant baby rattle (there were two of them since the cake was for twin baby girls!
Little fondant cupcakes...
And one of my favorite things... fondant cinnamon rolls!
To display the cake, Nikki had me set it up on a big round silver cake stand surrounded with huge pink tutu... it was just so stinkin' cute!
Oh, I almost forgot... the baby carriage topper!! She asked that I include 2 baby girls sleeping in the carriage...
And of course... the twin baby girls:
There were some other goodies I made for this baby shower as well... there were ice cream cone cake pops - two kind!
Don't you just love my faded purple nail polish? I almost never wear fingernail polish and then when I do, I never slow down enough to take it off even when it looks horrible!
And then there were candy apples...
I made pink and purple ones (as you can see in the very top picture) but for some reason, I didn't' get any close-ups of the pink ones... just the lavender/purple ones. Oh well.. ya'll know you can see all of the candy apples I've made (in lots of colors!!) here.
And that's all I've got for you!! As if that's not enough, huh? hehe!
If you have any questions about the cake or any of the cake decorations or any of these other goodies... just leave a comment!
