Baby Boy Shower Cake

My daughter asked me to make a smallish cake for a baby shower this weekend. Since I'm in the midst of a remodel project, and since the creative juices (for a cake anyway) weren't flowing, I resorted to surfing the Internet for ideas.

What did we ever do without the Internet?

Anyway, I came across a website called My Sweet & Saucy. Talk about some awesome cakes!! I found exactly what I wanted to make.

Here's my version:

I frosted the cake with buttercream. The background tan background and the pregnant lady are fondant.

My son, who can draw anything, was over yesterday, so I conned him into drawing my pregnant lady, using the one I found to go by. I'd say he got it pretty close!. I think my lady may be a few weeks behind the other one, but close!!

I cut the lady he drew out, laid her on my fondant and carefully cut her out with a small sharp knife. Pretty easy! For the touches of blue, I used the same buttercream that I frosted the cake with. I love how it turned out!

Here's a close-up:

Congratulations on the new baby boy, Sarah!!
