I'm making a cake for a baby shower for a girl. The cake is going to be 6" and 10", covered in fondant.

That's all the input I have from my friend who needs the cake. She doesn't care what flavor or what color. I asked if the mom-to-be had registered somewhere and if she had everything in a particular pattern, figuring I'd match the cake to that...nope. I asked what color the plates and stuff are, or if I could see the front of an invitation...just generic, nothing special, girl colors. I gave her a couple of ideas, hoping she would know what she wanted...nope, doesn't matter, "surprise me"

So what should I do?

She said "surprise me" on her wedding cake and that worked out fine but I hate the idea of the cake not matching anything at the party.

I LOVE pink, brown, and green color combination. I did a baby boy shower cake (blue and white tiered in my photos) based on a Pink Cake Box design and everyone loved it, it could easily translate to girl colors.

I second the pink and brown colors. I love that combination! I wouldn't worry about the cake not matching the party, especially if the mom isn't worried about that. I think it's a great opportunity to make the cake stand out. I think this is one of the cutest baby cakes I've ever seen. (I think it's the miniature boots that did me in. icon_smile.gif )

Anyway, I think it would be a fun design for this situation, and you could make some color changes to make it more appropriate for a girl. Wouldn't those boots be adorable in white with pink trim?
