I want to make a cake for the soon-to-be big sister (age 2) at a baby shower so she feels special, too. Any ideas? I'm not the most talented decorator, so something basic would be great... maybe simple fondant figures? Photos to illustrate would be even better... since I am pretty non-creative. Thanks!!

what are her favourite things? im thinking some kind of image/ figure, of her and her favourite animal or tv characters. maybe you could do an individual especially for her cake, not big enough to share!

How about a cupcake bouquet, using her favorite colors?

You are so thoughtful to have that idea!! It's sometimes hard for little ones to get used to the idea of sharing their parents, if they've been the only child. It helps to make every experience about the new baby a positive one and this is a great way to do it.

I'm going to have to steal your idea when my sis-in-law has her first shower. Her 3 1/2 year old step daughter had to learn to share daddy with Maia, and will now have to share them with the new baby!

My suggestion is a small satellite cake or cupcake keeping with the theme of the shower but with something personal to the big sis too.
