Baby Face and Teapot Cake

MISSION : teapot cake and cupcakes for a tea party themed baby shower. 

I love making my cakes fun and whimsical, and I thought the baby face cupcake was perfect for this special occasion. And I love the different types of flowers around the teapot with the baby bottles. Can you see the tiny baby bottles around the flowers of the teapot? It's a lot of work and a bit challenging but I really had a great time making this. The baby face cupcakes were chocolate with chocolate ganache and filling covered with buttercream fondant. The teapot cake was white cake with lemon mousse and buttercream covered with buttercream fondant.

Peony Birthday Cake

I have been browsing at cake websites and I came across Sweet and Saucy Shop's cake gallery . They made these gorgeous simple cakes with just a single flower as the focal point. And the peonies caught my eye. I've been obsessed with peonies ever since. I bought my peony cutters and I cut and ruffled away. I made this birthday cake for my co-worker, Marla. It's a white chocolate mud cake with white chocolate ganache covered with buttercream fondant.
