Mom-to-be's event planner asked for help with a baby shower cake that would have a nautical theme. The phrase, "Ahoy, It's A Boy!" was in the decorations and needed to be incorporated in the cake design. The cake itself is blue buttercream with white buttercream borders and lettering. To get straight/solid shapes, the lifesavers and the backing to the sailboat topper were cut from gum paste and dried hard. Colored fondant was then cut and adhered to them for decoration. The rest of the cake decoration is also colored fondant. The banner was a mix of gum paste and fondant that was dried, so it would hold shape standing up.
