A Cake for Baby Stewart...Well, His Mom Anyways!

Tuesday, September 4, 2012

Last Wednesday the Young Women threw a baby shower for the lovely Sister Stewart. Sister B brought a chocolate fountain and the Young Women brought things to dip in the chocolate and games for us to play! I volunteered to bring a cake. After looking around at some of the local bakeries, I decided to make it. I'm sure it would have tasted better if I went with a professional bakery, but I wanted to put a sail boat on it and nothing at the bakeries tickled my fancy.

This was my first time using fondant and I have to admit I really enjoyed it. I just wish it tasted better :) I decided to do fondant on the top, so I could have a pretty design and then use a tip to decorate the sides. It didn't turn out how I envisioned it but it worked. I wanted the frosting on the side to look like waves, but I just couldn't get it to work. I ended up just doing a bunch of s's. Maybe I should take a class.

I don't get to make cakes often (This was my second time decorating a cake...I usually just do cupcakes), but I hope I find more occasions to in the future. It was a lot of fun!
