Baby Shower Cake

I attended my cousins baby shower this weekend. I made this cake for it:Isn't he cute?!?

I really loved the creativity with this cake. I made the buttons and just fell in love with them. I just cut them out with a small cookie cutter, took the end of my paint brush and made the holes, then shook about some in blue pearl dust, some in green pearl dust and some in just white pearl dust. They turned out adorable. The baby has my heart. He's the cutest little thing I've ever made! I really wish I had done fondant lettering on this. I smeared the BOY letters as I was walking out of my house to go to the shower. I was pretty upset. But Oh well, what can you do. I just fixed it the best I could!

Also, I need to experiment with the wire more that I used to put the moon and stars on. I made more stars than this but a lot of the broke and wouldn't stay on the wire. So I'll have to practice that.

As for the food, I did not make that, but it was AMAZING!

Over all, I was very pleased with this cake.
