So I have this big baby shower cake to do for tomorrow....... I made this beautiful baby with marzipan. I put it in the fridge while i went to get some hair stuff for it and when my daughter saw it she screamed. SHe said it look too real and that it was creapy to have that on the cake. So I called the mom-to-be and showed her the baby and she agreed. So I threw it away.

Today I have to cover the cake in fondant for tomorrow. I try and try but it keeps breaking on me its just to humid and hot here in Florida. So I said screw this and I will make bc instead. Of course it is not going to be as good but I guess it will do.

I am so dissapointed that the designed i want is not going to come out, but I guess is not a complete loss. I finished the bottom part of the cake and I will work on the rest tomorrow..... I cant take any more cake stuff tonight.

I will post pics when I am done.... wish me luck!

Good Luck. I used a mold that looks like a real baby and I just love it. Made a shower cake with it tonight. We did cover the babies bottow up with a blanket but I really wanted the baby to be natural.

We all have days like this when everything just seems to go wrong. The best thing to do is to put it all away get a good nights rest and start fresh tomorrow.

Good luck!

I was not going to stress over fondant. I whiped together the best buttercream and it turned out delicious.

I havent figured out how to post a picture here but it is in my album. It is "babyshower" Thank God for plan B! icon_smile.gif
