Baby Girl Shower Cake and Macarons

Apart from wedding cakes, I always wanted to make baby shower cakes. I was thinking maybe I could just decorate a dummy one (a cake-shaped foam for display use) just for fun, but it would be a bit of a waste. Then a few weeks ago, Kristina came to me and asked if she could place an order to me for a baby shower cake, I was soooo over the moon and got extremely excited. My dream totally came true!!

Kristina and her friends were planning to throw a surprise baby shower party for Eileen. I was amazed at the level of detail that Kristina had gone to for the baby shower when she showed me a bit of her email; restaurant, flowers, helium balloons, centerpiece, teddy bears, baby clothes, ribbons, cards, decorations, candy boxes with tags, cake and favours and on an on! She told me baby shower is a big thing in America. I was honoured to help make the cake and favours. There was a pink and brown theme, we discussed a few ideas for the cake, teddy bear and shopping chic would be the final design. For the favours, Kristina suggested macarons to be more English : ) she definitely got me as excited as her, especially there were a lot of funny stories in between, especially how to get Eileen to the party! 😛 We were all very glad Eileen enjoyed and liked the baby shower very much

My first draft for the design of the cake, we scaled down to 1 tier cake and macarons was more than enough.

I started making bits and pieces a week in advance, made the chocolate cake with pink vanilla and brown chocolate sponge layers with buttercream the day before, I enjoyed putting everything together the most in the end.
