This is for a baby shower today, the baby is my first really difficult fondant/gumpaste figure. It is a friend of mine's sister who is expecting, and she is doing the nursery in the wild, wild west bedding from target. Here are the links to the valance, http://www.target.com/gp/detail.html/ref=in_de_detail-buybox-with-variations/602-9435982-0143817?ie=UTF8&frombrowse=&asin=B000BO1FSG and the diaper stacker, http://www.target.com/gp/detail.html/ref=in_de_detail-buybox-with-variations/602-9435982-0143817?ie=UTF8&frombrowse=&asin=B000BO1FQ8, which were my inspiration for the cake. I really like it and I am very happy so far with the way it came out. It is 10 in on bottom 3 layer chocolate, and 6 in, 3 layer chocolate on top. All buttercream with fondant accents.

Honest opinion??....TOO CUTE!! I like the whole design of the cake, but my favorites are that cute little baby and then the letters looking like rope. She is so gonna love this cake! Jen

Edited to add...you gotta download that into your photos so we can save to favorites! I was just gonna save it and noticed you didn't have it in photos yet=)

Thanks everyone! I didn't get quite the reaction I expected, but I was happy with it. It is definitely one that will have to go in my portfolio! It was alot of hard work, but I wanted to do it for my friend. At least I have DH and CC to show enthusiasm over it! Thank you thank you thank you for boosting my spirits!
