My dear SIL is having her first boy, they have 3 little girls.yea! Anyway I'm having a baby shower and need some ideas. She really wants a modern looking-possibly topsy turvey cake done in brown/blue. I don't know how/or what I could put with it to make it a baby shower cake. I was thinking of doing a stacked round cake-maybe 2 or 3 high. Putting stripes down on the bottom layer and polka dots on the next. My problem is what to put on top? Was thinking maybe about a bathtub-though I've never done one-on top. If anyone has ideas or links to a similiar cake please let me know!
how about a brown teddy bear with a little blue blankie???
Here are two modern, lovely cakes:
The first (in your color scheme) is by: jkalman
The second is by: thems_my_kids

When I read your post, they popped into my mind. Not topsy-turvey, but you could do them that way. I think (remembering the post about the orange-yellow cake) that the creator added the animal sugar cookies as the final touch.
Perhaps the little girls would love a special cookie each as they welcome their new brother.
Hope this helps a bit!
thank you guys. I love both these ideas. I have been having such a time getting on cake central-- finally this morning I could get on and I appreciate your input!
Here are some petit fore's i did in thoes colors maybe that will inspirie something
I just posted a brown & blue baby shower cake done for a boy. Check it out in my pics. Give it a few moments to post if not already there. Hope it helps.
I did a cake exactly as you described for my cousin's baby shower. On the top, I made the baby's monogrammed initials out of fondant. You can see it in my photos. Good Luck with your cake!
okay here it is alright I just can't get it to work. It's the brown/blue teddy bear on my pics.
How fun! I'm checking out this post and there's my cake! I'm easily amused! LOL!
ooh-I love your paisly. Did you freehand them? How did you get the big ones to pop out-chocolate?
I cut out paisley shapes from mmf and placed them on the cake and then piped the detail with royal icing. It was a bit time consuming but really easy!
The white paisley's are royal icing piped directly on the cake.
