My dear friends are expecting a baby boy in February and they had a Safari themed baby shower. The colors were blue and brown and due to the large turnout, we had to plan accordingly when it came to the cakes. We had four dozen cupcakes, an 8"x3" round cake that sat on top of the large cupcake tower, a sheet cake, and the baby blocks were made using the square wilton cupcake pan (2 cakes were stacked with frosting to creat a square). The baby blocks and some of the cupcakes were Devils Food and the remaining cakes were white cake. The cakes were iced with buttercream frosting. The blue frosting was tinted buttercream. Chocolate frosting was used on some of the cupcakes. Fondant accents were used on the baby blocks (letters & shapes) and the round cake. Rasberry & chocolate sugar crystals were spinkled on the cupcakes and the top of the round cake.
The cupcake wrappers were cut using a Cricut machine and the Cupcake Wrapper Cricut Lite cartridge. The fondant accents (letters & shapes) were cut using the Cricut Cake machine. The wreath was wrapped in riboon and various ribbon types were cut and tied around the form.
Thank you for looking.
