I’ve been going through some old pictures lately, and found some cakes I made for baby showers!
It’s getting me all nostalgic, because I remember waiting for these little babies and now
there’s all these kids running around in their place! How does this happen so fast??
This cake was based off a quilt wall-hanging the mom had for the nursery. It was a really easy design and didn’t require a lot of skill to decorate it, but I vividly remember my hand trembling for days afterwards! It felt like I was piping forever and trying to get all the lines matched up!
Loved the way it turned out, though!
This was one of the very first cakes I ever made, and seeing it now I kind of cringe
a little! The corners are all sagging and it’s not too level, but the mom was happy!
The candies were just wafers I melted and made with some plastic molds.
Have I ever mentioned that one of my very first jobs was going to some lady’s house who made chocolates and helping her fill these molds and pipe little designs on them??! I think I was like 12 or so and I have no idea who this lady was or how we knew she was “hiring”! I actually don’t even remember where she lived, how I got there, how long I worked for her or anything else related to this story. But I swear it all happened and that’s where I learned about tapping plastic molds to get rid of air bubbles! See, all my “skills” come from somewhere, and sometimes it’s a strange lady’s house.
This next one, obviously isn’t a cake, (and I do remember I shared it before), but it’s still
one of my favorites so I’m sharing it again! These were for my sister’s baby shower
and the “baby” is now a 7 year old big girl! Ahhh, here come the tears!
