When I think about making a cake for a baby shower, I don't think of storks, miniature babies, or pastel colors. I think about the expectant, or new mother. What does she like to do? What would she wear? Cake making is especially fun for me when I get to surprise people with a cake they didn't even know that they wanted. I made two cakes for baby showers this spring and they were both somewhat non-traditional, namely, no tiny babies or pregnant bellies. Does anyone really want to eat a baby or a belly?
Alivia is my brand new niece. I chose this quilted/sewing look with buttons because Maja, my sister, loves to sew. Maja has Celiac disease and I thought it would be nice to make a cake that she could eat so everything was gluten free. It was a chocolate chip brownie swirl cake with chocolate swiss meringue buttercream frosting. She loved it.
