Mother Goose Rhymes Baby Shower

A friend had a baby shower invitation that had cute little line drawings of a few Mother Goose rhyme characters, and she wanted a cake that had those characters on it in the same color tones as the invitation. I enlarged the line drawings on a copier and used them as templates to cut out the characters from fondant, as well as the 3D skirt/legs of the woman on the bottom tier. The cow/moon was a gum paste silhouette cutout that was dried and then adhered to a dowel with a little melted chocolate. The character image was cut out of pieces of fondant and adhered to the gum paste silhouette. The book was made this way, too, and had a skewer adhered to it with chocolate, so it would hold its placeon the side of the cake. The banner was gum paste, so that it would dry in that shape.
