Let me say first that I only decorate as a hobby, but I think I would make a butterfly shaped cake then put baby shower decorations on it, like a teddy bear, blocks, blankets etc. - not something I would want for a baby shower but kind of sounds like that's what shes meaning. Good Luck.

You can do a baby quilt pattern on the butterly using the pastel colors she has requested.

she said today that she wanted standard white buttercream icing on top and she wants lavendar, pink and mint green colors to be used on the cake. She suggested blocks, the alphabet, rattles, booties or etc on top. This is unusal for a baby shower cake. The baby is a girl so she wants the wording "It's a girl on it in pink". I like the quilt idea but I haven't done one yet. I have seen some really cute ones.

I have a simple way of doing quilts - I use the basket weave tip because it leaves the ridges and I like the texture. Then you draw out the squares on your cake - decide which squares are going to have which colors - you know like a lavendar square followed by the mint green square, then the yellow, etc. You should also make vertical lines on one square with horrizontal squares on the next and just alternate your pattern - super simple. Dont know if I explained it correctly, but it is simple. Good luck

How are you making the butterfly? If you were to carve it into a standard butterfly shape from a larger cake, you could make the top white like she wants, maybe with a border, then you could alternate the other colors she wants around the egdes, but instead of just blocks of color, you could incorporate one color into the next like puzzle pieces.

I plan on cutting the butterfly out. After that I don't know for sure what I'm doing yet. I think I understand what you are saying about the quilt squares. It doesn't sound to difficult.

I could see a baby made out of fondant wrapped in a blanket resting atop the butterfly with baby booties and a rattle next to it as if the butterfly is carrying the baby.I think you should talk the customer into coloring the butterfly a little
