A CAKE FOR A BABY SHOWER - 2

Baby shower Cake

Last time, it was just the cake whereas this time, we hosted a baby shower on Saturday for a dear blog reader turned a very good friend of ours, R & R. It's really amazing how people get to know each other and how things turn out to be in a matter of  a few months!! R & R are expecting their first baby GIRL in April and we are super duper excited to have hosted her baby shower and also cannot wait to hold that precious little thing!

If you know me any bit, you will know that I can really get into the details of each and everything if I wanted to.That reminds me of our wedding. I was a bridezilla. I went crazzzyy with details and still feel that I could have done a LOT better.I really feel sad for all those who were a part of that journey with me.I must have fought with every possible person who I came across to get those things done :-) I think everything would have been under control if we lived anywhere other than Kannur because sourcing anything is a big thing there :-) Whatever said and done, Kannur is my most favourite place on earth!!

Baby Shower Cake

This time, I was bent upon finishing all the baking, decorating and shopping a day before R's big day. I couldn't afford to miss on anything and then have a panic attack at the last minute. I have had enough of those and I'm not up for any more of it ;-) So 2 days before their big day, we both sat down and sorted out all what we bought. I was telling Jobin that I love doing such stuffs and that it reminded me of my birthday parties Appan & Amma used to host when I was a kid. I remember fighting to get a 'carry home' gift for myself.

Favors

So that night once I finished baking the all the cakes and cupcakes, I sat down to pack the cupcakes up which would be the favors. I asked Jobin to help me with it because it was already late in the night and I was really sleepy after the productive day. But once I was on it, there was no looking back, I don't know where I got the energy from and where all the tiredness went off to.

Jobin told me we could finish the later next day. I just smiled and told him,'I could do this all night!' :-) Give me something to do creatively and I can be up all day all night!

Baby Shower Cake

I baked 2 x 8inch  Chocolate Fudge Cakes , 2 x 6 inch Chocolate Fudge Cake cakes which were sandwiched and covered with a rich chocolate buttercream. The cakes and 24 cupcakes were later covered with fondant. It's that simple! : ) 

Baby Shower Cake

I really hope you enjoyed looking at the cake as much as I enjoyed baking and decorating it. I just love such days. It gets the best out of me. Once again...oh how I love saying this...I'm not a Wilton product :-)
