COMING SOON: Woodland Nursery Baby Bedding Cake. (Click photos to see them bigger!)
Mommy-to-be was using bedding (called "Woodland") for her new baby's nursery. The hostess of the shower asked me to design a cake for them based on that. I always go looking for ideas and inspiration when I get a new cake, but I could literally not find one thing done in this theme anywhere - not Google, not Flickr, not my trusty old Cake Central. Nothing. Zip. So I just had to start from ground zero on this one. I went searching for coordinating materials, so I could find a nice big flower - and I found a gorgeous pink floral and a perfect damask. I had so much fun and I learned a lot designing this cake. I learned it's better to just do your own thing. Have an idea of what YOU want to do - and then, if you must look to others, do it only AFTER you have at least a shell of an idea of what you want to do.
Two gorgeous coordinating material samples (above). I used the two-tone flower in the first sample as the basis for my cake's fantasy flowers.
And here's the final "draft" of what the cake will look like (LOL once again @ my mad MS Paint skillz). I'll post the actual cake photo tomorrow.
