This baby shower was such a fun one to be a part of! I worked on this project with Kimberly Hoffman, owner of Your Dream Dress, an online discount designer wedding dress company. Kimberly put together an absolutely beautiful baby shower for her best friend – her attention to detail is incredible! The buffet she used to display the cake and sweets on was stunning, and the view through the windows behind gave it a very bright and welcoming feel (you’d never know it was an absolute downpour outside all day!)
Here are some photos I took of the dessert table…
The cake was designed to match the party invitations. Momma and baby elephants were hand-made with fondant as was the little umbrella momma elephant was holding (: The flavors were alternating tiers of lemon cake and berry swirl cake, both with raspberry preserves and raspberry buttercream filling.
I also made some matching cupcakes and petit fours! The cupcakes were chocolate with vanilla bean buttercream. The petit fours were almond frangipane cake layered with raspberry preserves and glazed with a thin layer of candy fondant.
Kimberly set the table up with pretty glass vases filled with pink candy, tall elegant candles and fresh flower arrangements also. She filled in the empty spots with french macaroons later. It was a stunning display.
Congratulations to Jennifer on her new little baby – and Thank You to Kimberly for such a fun project to work on! :-) It was a pleasure working with you!
