A Baby Shower Cake and A Birthday Cake

I was crazy enough to agree to making two cakes this week.. especially when both were due on the same day! A bit stressful at times as I had to make 4 batches of cake batter, 3 batches of frosting, and 2 batches of marshmallow fondant but I'm so proud of my accomplishment.  The cakes came out moist and the frostings were yum; however, I was frustrated with my marshmallow fondant.  It was so sticky and thin at times which made it hard with the banners.  Looking into working with gumpaste soon, stay tuned.

Cake 1 of 2 was a baby shower cake for my brother's coworker to match their King of the Jungle party supplies.  The cake flavors were oreo and chocolate with a dark chocolate frosting (adapted from Martha Stewart's Cupcakes).  It was covered in marshmallow fondant and store bought chocolate fondant.

Cake 2 of 2 was a birthday cake for my boyfriend's niece who requested a princess theme.  The cake was white cake (adapted from Cake Central) with strawberry frosting.  It was also covered in marshmallow fondant.  Many thanks to my sister and her boyfriend who helped with decorating.
