oh baby!

Several weeks ago, Cristy told me about a cake that she wanted me to make for a baby shower that she was hosting. She said that it was the...umm..."chest" and belly of a pregnant woman. The more she described it, the more confused and scared I became. A while later, she brought me a picture of the cake that she wanted. It was exactly as she'd described it, but it was beautiful! I just couldn't wrap my mind around the idea before seeing it for myself.
It is an amazingly creative idea for a cake, but I agonized about it for weeks...I just didn't know if I'd be able to pull it off without making something that could very well end up o n cakewrecks The time finally came when I just had to go for it. It was definitely a challenge and about half way through, I contemplated chunking the entire thing in the garbage, but I stuck it out and was THRILLED with how it turned out!
This definitely wasn't a solo job. The cake was HUGE and there were lots of times where two sets of hands was necessary, so I enrolled the help of my unpaid mom! Thanks for all your help, Mama...I couldn't have done it without you!


  1. This is UH-MAZING!! I too was really worried when you described it, but it is sooooo great!

  2. I laughed when I read your description of the cake! You did such an amazing job! thank you so much.
