A CAKE FOR A BABY SHOWER

Baby Shower Cake

Iam mighty pleased with what I have done with this cake.This cake kept me awake for many nights and finally now that I am done with it, I can sleep in peace. Zzzzzz (not really!).This is for a couple here in Minneapolis and everything was left upto me to decide. All they wanted was a chocolate cake with a chocolate frosting. So after a few days of brainstorming session with Jobin & myself, I was able to decide how I wanted the cake to look like in the end.

So what do you guys think about my cake? I really don't think my heart can bear to see that being cut :-)
And for your kind information, I'm not a Wilton Cake Decoration class product :-)

My blog is loading very slow for the past 2 weeks and that's why you are not able to see the comment section. Can I request you guys to please wait for the blog to load completely so that you can tell me how you like this cake? Pretty please? Thanks so much! I am working on getting it back to normal soon!

A reminder: I am giving away some cookies, so don't forget to claim it!

OMG !!! You should open your own bakery, if you haven't already done it. This looks awesome. I cannot bear it seeing cut as well. Amazing, mind-blowing and now I am running out of words :)

Raksha said...

I am making a baby shower cake myself.
but it will be a small cake and will be buttercream decoration with fondant accents. Lovely cake.

Nitha said...

Thats an amazing work... Loved the decoration.. After looking at all the beautiful cakes from my blogger friends I wanted to go for Wilton's cake decoration class.. Now I ve decided to join next month's sessions :)

I stared at the picture for 5 whole mins .. and bothered my husband showing him all the tiny details .. like the shoe .. aawwww !! You are a perfectionist and you should take cake decoration very seriously :) I don't know how you are going to watch that cut.. but i bet it will taste awsm and the couples can't thank you enough :)

Divya said...

Amazing cake...
i had my baby shower last weekend, i can't bear it being cut either...i don't think i would have let anyone eat it..
I wonder how cute it would look in PINK!!

foodiecorner said...

Just one word - AMAZING ... loved the cute shoes and the baby blue colour.. can say Amazing a thousand times :)

Lia said...

That is fantastic! I love the soft blue color it's perfect. I am glad I am not you, I would silently cry when that got cut into.

Bravo ! for the work that has gone into the professional looking cake.

Denise said...

If I had put so much work and obvious love into this cake, I think I would cry to have it seen eaten. It's a work of art and so are your photographs. I'm a first time visitor from Tastespotting and am very happy to have found you, especially today.

Divya Kudua said...

Very impressive Ria--I am sure the couple would be very happy to have this,of course the cake cutting part would be tough-what with such a pretty looking cake!!

What a coincidence, I actually saw this in person and tasted a piece today. I was browsing tastespotting for dessert recipe for my daughter and her friend and came to your pic. It was prettier in person and delicious too.

jayasree said...

Gorgeous cake...Its looking perfect to the minute details. I'm sure the couple who got to cut this too may want to preserve this piece of art.

notcathy said...

It looks fantastic.. But I want to see this cake for a girl.. We all know that pink is a favorite color for many girls and blue for boys.. :)

Archana said...

All art needs to be preserved so also this cake. Don't cut this cake, can you not make another one and give it to the couple who need this cake. As I am sure they will also not want to cut this one.

Saji said...

gigi said...

Ria, the cake is really pretty...it looks so perfect too..

one suggestion though i have is that.it would have been better if the background was another color..as the blue cake and decorations don't stand out in blue background..

Zareena said...

Ria, this cake is absolutely gorgeous. We(me and my husband) were staring at the cake with eyes popped and mouths open.. :) Really amazing creativity. You should seriously start a bakery dear. You rock gal.
