Safari Baby Shower Cake & Cupcakes

This Dark Chocolate Cake with buttercream frosting
was made for a baby shower. 
The theme was safari and the invitations had a very cute design. 
I took the stars and palm tree from the invitation
to decorate the cake. 
If I had more time, I would have made fondant animals to match. 
But the client was very pleased with what I gave her.

These Dark Chocolate & Double Vanilla Cupcakes
were also created for the occasion.
I made royal icing stars to again match the invitation.  The best part is that the display the cupcakes sat in onsite had a dark brown ribbon with almost exact matching green polka dots.  So it looked like I knew what the display looked like before creating the color!


  1. I love the simplicity of the palm tree on such a detailed cake.

    Happy new year to you.

  2. Thank you so much. Without me knowing, it actually matched the setting of the room the shower was held in. Talk about a streak of luck! :-)
