I am making a Baby Shower cake that will match their bedding. (It's a Boy). I plan to make a 2 tier cake. The bottom will have fondant animals that look like the animals in these pics. I want the second layer to be a little plainer with the baby's name or something. The topper will be a 3D replica of the sheep laying down with a 3D baby laying up against the sheep. Any opinions on that?

My question...what color(s) would you use for the two tiers?[/img]

I would do the bottom tier in a patchwork just like the bedding and then the top tier in the blue.

thank you, thank you for responding...patchwork. I'll have to do a search on that!

I second the patchwork suggestion. That would be cute. You could even do some so they have the animals on them to match, but that might be a lot of work.

Love that idea.

Fondant? Know of any instructions out there?

That's a great idea using the patchwork for the bottom. I would use a patchwork with an animal and then the next one be one of the ones without any animals and back to one with an animal and so on. This would match the theme beautifully and not be overwhelming with too many animals on the bottom layer.

You could always try doing a transfer......
