Ahhh, here's the baby

Awe this is the cake that almost didn't happen because my oven broke on Monday - almost had a panic attack. For some weird reason the element damn near melted itself all the way through and I'm so thankful I came into the kitchen before the preheat was done - the element was glowing white and was sparking! Immediately turned it off and called Lowes. Thankfully it was an easy fix and just required a replacement element that arrived on Wednesday, just in time for me to do the cake.

But anyway, this cake is for my friend Laura whom was hosting a baby shower for one of her friends. Laura brought me a picture of a cake she found on one of those baby shower planning websites and asked me to replicate....I think I got it pretty close.

Happy Easter

Happy Easter!
Made this after seeing a similar cake on Cakecentral but the egg was just white. I decided to paint the egg to make it more Easter like.

So this cake was far more challenging to me than I thought it would be and surprisingly, it wasn't the was the shoe box! Purse was done in about 3 hours and the darn shoe box took me easily 6-8 hours to complete. Mainly that was due to my own stupidity (fondant wasn't long enough) but I just couldn't get it to look right. After three attempts, what you see is what I settled on. Overall, I like the outcome. Shoe, Roses, Pearls, and Flowers are all gumpaste. Purse is Marble cake with chocolate filling covered in Satin Ice; Coach design was airbrushed on with Silver Luster. Shoe Box is Chocolate Cake with chocolate filling covered in Satin Ice. Martini glass is plastic but it's filled with red glitter gel.
