Oh, Mama!

About a year ago, a dear friend asked me to make a cake for her sister-in-law's baby shower. Because I LOVE it when multiple elements of a party match and correspond, I asked for a copy of the shower invite. Once I had it in my hand, I began deciding how I would incorporate its design into the cake. Voila'!

The two-layer chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream icing was decorated with stripes of various thicknesses, all in colors that matched the invite. At this point, I hadn't had much experience with writing on cakes, so my cursive isn't breathtakingly perfect. But the cake was still a hit at the shower!
