 I need some help on decorating a baby shower cake. It will be a sheet cake. They want peanut butter frosting and I'm not sure of how I would decorate a baby shower cake for a girl (pink) on peanut butter frosting with the color of the frosting.  Any suggestions would be so helpful, thanks.

I don't know if this will help or not but I have a customer who always orders chocolate buttercream no matter what kind of cake it is lol so I always ice with the flavored buttercream (and sometimes fill) and then ice OVER it with white icing (or whatever color). I use a crusting recipe for both icings to be sure that it covers easily. My customers usually seem pretty happy with that. :-) Like I said, I don't know if that helps, this is just what I do.

Pink and brown is a very popular combination.  You can use pink accents to make it still girly.

I just googled "pink and tan cake" and this is one of the cute things I found:

Hope these inspire you!!


1. You could tint the peanut butter buttercream if you want it darker brown, or use it's natural tan color

2. Use the peanut butter buttercream as the base color and do pink squiggles or other deco all over  http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_6z_0g0SO9yQ/SfX0YNFhDuI/AAAAAAAAAoU/OyijPfYsUvY/s320/cakes+for+week+of+4-18-09+002.jpg 


3. Just added this one because it's a sheet cake with the natural peanut butter color with pink. Doesn't look bad to me !

Could you just fill the cake with peanut butter and ice the outside white ?

Thank You all for your help.  The sheet cake  with the pink roses does look pretty  good!  She told me today that she doesn't want alot of decorations. So just some pink should work.  Maybe I'll darken the frosting a little.

I'll post a  pic when I make the cake. blush.png
