Needed to do a cake that was pretty, Springy, and Eastery. This is what I came up with. The flowers are done with a brushed embroidery technique. My first time doing this, I love it! 8 inch sweet cream cake with strawberry cream filling.

I knew who Lightning McQueen was, but will admit that I had to look up Mater. This was done with a Frozen Buttercream Transfer. These cupcakes were also for the same party - checkered flags!

My sister is due to have my first sweet niece in early June. We traveled 8 hours with these cakes to Alabama for two baby showers to get ready for Payton Olivia's arrival. The owl cake was made to match the invitations for shower number 1 and the bird cake went with the theme for shower number 2. Both were so much fun to work on! Each cake had a layer of milk chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream and a layer of sweet cream cake with chocolate buttercream. The owl cake has 8 and 10 inch layers. The bird cake has 6 and 10 inch layers.
The baby shoe cookies were part of the dessert table at the bird shower. Those are sugar cookies with royal icing and fondant buttons.
