We had a shower for Jen and January last week, just a couple of days before January made her appearance.
Here's the cake I put together:
Jen is doing the nursery in an old timey (is that even a word?) theme. The predominate colors are baby pink and cream. I found this musical carousel snow globe at Hobby Lobby and decided it would work perfect for her cake and for her room.
The cake itself was simple - just a 12" two layer.
After frosting the top of the cake and a crumb coat on the sides (buttercream), I used a 2D tip on the sides.
The cake plate is a large cut glass plate on top of an upside down crystal bowl. I put a strand of Christmas lights under the bowl to illuminate it.
