I was asked to make a cake for a nursery rhyme themed baby shower.
There were a lot of different ideas thrown around for this cake. At first I was asked to do an open book cake frosted with butter cream and some 3D characters. Then I searched online to see what others have done. I saw some really great ideas on the web. I forwarded some of these ideas to my 'client' and from the ideas they asked for a pile of books with 3D characters.
This is what I came up with.
I did a very simple cake this time around. Just a yellow cake with buttercream, covered in fondant and gumpaste characters. Jon said he couldn't believe I didn't put anything in the middle. I'm always trying new things in the center. This time I wanted quick and easy. (It's the end of the school year so I super busy with that, and of course my gorgeous babes that I just loaded the center with buttercream).
I made a gumpaste clock and mouse for Hickory Dickory Clock, a Humpty Dumpty, a spider for the Itsy Bitsy Spider, and a lamb for Mary had a Little Lamb. Oh and a baby for the top to sit next to the "Sent from Heaven above..."
They asked for the mama's to be name and baby shower on the bindings of the books.
