Hi there,
I just got a call for a 9in round birthday cake. Sounds easy enough, right? Well then they called back saying they want it to have a "new mom theme" because the birthday girl is a new mom and they think that would be really cute. But they had no ideas for me and just left it up to me. I was hoping I could find something on here to help me out, but I'm just stumped. Maybe I'm not going about it in the right way, but how do you make a new mom cake that isn't a baby shower cake? I've already made this girl her baby shower cake so I'm having a really hard time distinguishing between the two. I was hoping you guys could help me out. They want the cake to say, "Happy Birthday Mommy, from your little Angel".
Thanks so much for your time! -Alison

if you do any fondant modeling - you could make the new "thin" mommy with a baby and stoller and/or diaperbag. ot aine2 posted a really cute cake of a decorator - you cou modify that for baby, with diapers, wipes, toys, clothes, bottles etc. good luck post pics!!

Thanks 'janelwaters' for your reply! I actually was thinking of doing something like that, but I already quoted her $30 thinking she just wanted a basic birthday cake. And if I did anything like that, I'd have to increase the price considerably and they don't want to pay anymore than that since it's just for the family. I was thinking of maybe doing a silhouette of a mother and baby, or just find a picture of what you said a skinny mommy with a diaper bag and stroller etc. But thanks for the help, I really appreciate it!

if you found the right picture you could do the fbct or a chocolate transfer that would be really cute!!

I like your silhouette idea, but to go with the wording I think you should add angel wings to the baby and add a bit of luster dust to them if you have some.
