On Sunday, Feb. 19th, I went to a surprise shower for Anne M. It was great to meet some new people (her neighbors) and deliver another awesome cake! It was so hard to not post to facebook or here about the cake I was making for her shower. I so badly wanted to post "this cake is turning out amazing" or "this cake is taking forever to bake." I kept it secret though and when Anne showed up to the shower she was completely surprised. Her neighbors had organized this one which meant less for me to do, until I offered to make the cake!!! I had fun making this one. It was a fairly simple cake, but still helped me to work on various skills.

Originally the idea for this cake was to actually make the boots on top of the cake out of Rice Krispy treats, but after giving it some thought, I decided how cute it would be to just use the actually ceramic boot planter that Jan, the party organizer, had bought and filled with flowers.
It was perfect as a cake topper. The cake is a 12" round base with an 8" round top tier. Both are funfetti cakes as it is one of Anne's favorites. The cakes are covered in homemade marshmallow fondant with fondant ribbons and buttons. It was super cute and super delicious.
Her gift was also tough to keep from her. I had to ask her some questions about the baby's name, initials etc. On Friday, when we had the MOMS Club joint shower for her and Jennifer W., I had given Jennifer an awesome new tote from Thirty-One with her baby's name on it. It was so hard to keep it a secret and hold this gift until the surprise shower. I wanted to trick her a bit. Here's a picture of her opening her gift.
The Thirty-One product is a Mini Utility Bin in Flutter and I had her baby's name embroidered on it. It was filled with wipes, baby lotion and wash, diaper rash cream, and some bibs. It was also super cute and made a great gift.


  1. You did an AMAZING job on the cake!! You're perfecting your talent more and more every day!!

  2. Thanks Wren. I really am having a blast making the various cakes.
