My first foray into the cake design/party planning started with one of my best friend’s baby showers.
As she didn’t find out the sex of the baby, we (one of my best friend’s Katie, who hosted the shower with me) decided on a bumblebee theme.
It was my first experience making a fondant cake and after being inspired by Flickr (who else?), I was pleased with the end result!
We also make vanilla bean cupcakes with buttercream frosting swirls (with my new Wilton 1M tip which I luuuurve) and made some bumblebee fondant toppers (note.. humidity and fondant are not my friends! half the bumblebees melted which was unfortunate, but a valuable lesson learnt!)
And finally we made some cupcake toppers which we also used for the other party food
…I did make more of the ‘B’ monogram toppers, but my 4 yr old polished those off for breakfast one morning while I was in the shower!!!!
