I feel like I’m constantly saying “Oh now this is the cutest cake we’ve ever made!” But seriously, THIS is the cutest cake we’ve ever made!!! So many precious details to melt your heart. Paige and Bianca, the shower’s host, spent a lot of time planning and editing the design, incorporating elements from multiple inspiration cakes to create a truly custom baby shower cake just for sweet lil Arianna!
The cream colored background gives the cake a soft presence and matches the piping on the flowers decorating the sides.
A curled banner announces the new baby’s name between the two tiers. The top tier is a raspberry dotted vanilla cake filled with white chocolate pastry cream, raspberry preserves and freshly whipped cream. Below it sits the very fitting pink strawberry cake layered with strawberry compote and vanilla pastry by request (usually it’s freshly whipped cream.)
Pink baby booties are adorned with a white bow and a dragee pearl flower studded strap. Darling!!
The most impressive element of the cake is the three dimensional baby carriage topper! Paige has out done herself once again! The polka-dotted carriage is outlined with white ruffles and features floral decor on the canopy with a flowing ribbon on the side. A cute teddy bear is propped up inside, ready for a ride.
When we delivered the cake and opened the box, Bianca was blown away! She confided in us that she had nightmares about the cake not turning out perfect but one look at it and all the anxiety was gone.
