Baby Lynley's Cake

Back in January, I had the honor of making a shower cake for my dear friend Crystal, who was expecting her first child, a baby-girl she and her husband named Lynley Kate. For the color scheme, I stuck with the hues Crystal had selected for Lynley's nursery: raspberry pink, brown, and two shades of green.

Polka dots and bows are always popular decor at baby showers, so why not roll with it? :) I made a strawberry cake with cream cheese icing and fondant accents.

This was the first time I had used fondant to make bows, and I was pretty pleased with how they turned out. So cute!
