Charlie’s Baby Shower

I was delighted when Whitney asked me to help do the Baby Shower for Charlie! I did the Sweets and Kim did the Savoury.

This was my first venture into Fondant Cake Decorating. I made the Baby Elephant Topper from Gum Paste, and was thrilled with it. Whit asked for two tiers of double layered cakes. Wow a challenge alright! Unfortunately, I had no idea the top tier needed to be placed on a board and be supported, so ot was lop-sided by the time the party started lol!

The Nappy Cake I made as an Elephant too. He was surrounded by little Nappy elephants.20180122_160842-COLLAGE

I added lots of little drawn/cutout elephants to decorate the table and food.


I made a Guest Book for all to write in as a Keepsake.

I made Shortbread coated with Chocolate, Elephant Biscuits and Chocolate Elephants

I crocheted a few items too – a ripple blanket with an elephant, an amigurumi baby elephant and booties


All in all it was a lovely day, with family and friends and lots of laughter, happiness and wow! the gifts were amazing!
