Today was my cousin’s baby shower. I made the cake and cupcakes.

Here they are:

Cupcakes were Pillsbury Butter Cake (fabulous!) with butter cream frosting and fondant flowers and leaves.

The cake was a sheet cake cut into two layers with raspberry and butter cream filling and butter cream frosting. The belly and boobs were baked in metal bowls and set on a cakeboard cut to fit. They were then covered with butter cream and fondant. The darker purple is butter cream too, but royal icing could be used. The pearls are fondant with an edible pearl powder  brushed on. The belly button is a ball of fondant set on the butter cream covered belly before the “dress” was laid on.
