I need to make a baby shower cake with a 'french' theme. It will have a chocolate effiel tower that is about 12 inches tall, but i need some ideas to bring in the baby part? Itis for a boy-baby shower. Please help with any ideas you may have. I'm at a loss.......

Maybe a gumpaste "It's a Boy!" banner hanging on the Eiffel Tower? if that's not too cutesy.

Thank you Texas-Rose, cutesy is good!

How are you with fondant figures? Could you make a baby with a blue and white striped shirt and a french beret? (kind of like the cliche white and black stripes) Sorry if that's dumb but it's the first thing that came to mind icon_redface.gif

Or maybe a french poodle?

foxymomma - that's a great idea too. I can see a little boy with stripes and a beret........ laying on a blanket under a lap post next to the tower..... my fondant is far from good but with more practice i can be half as good as you guys one day........thanks for the ideas..

The easiest thing is to search for polymer clay tutorials, that's what I did for the Pooh Bear in my photos. (He's far from perfect, but at least I had instructions to help!)
