how do you decide what to decorate a cake if there is no opinion from a "customer"
making a baby girl shower cake for a cousin and i can not think of how i want to decorate it... i did cupcakes for another cousin -i made baby rattles,booties,bodysuits and bows for those cupcakes... i want to do something "new" but not sure what other then a cake and not cupcakes...
Ask her how she's going to decorate for the party, what colors she's chosen, or if she has a theme. Then proceed from there.
im the one hosting... food will be italian. there will be gelato and mom to be's favorite cake-chocolate.. invites were brown with a pink dress and shoes
Try Google Images: Brown and pink baby shower cake.
Tons of ideas come up. I'm sure you'll find something there to inspire you.
i have looked at pinterest and google... (nothing is "special " to me that makes me want to bake/decorate a cake like it..)
i guess my question is if there is nothing on those sites, pictures from a book or magazine, ideas from a client- do you just whip up something out of blue?? are you generally more open to like what you created or do you analyze each thing when you try to "copy" it
I usually use invitations for inspiration.
... maybe i can make a cake off the games we will be playing--matching animals to their family name,mother goose scramble, price is right, how sweet it is(candy related to pregnancy game)
i dont know why i am having such a mental block when it comes to this cake...
you could do baby blocks , they are many great designs for baby showers out there I am sure something will come to you soon
