Farm Themed Baby Shower Cake!


The Father-to-be grew up on a farm in Ireland.
So, it was an almost obvious choice to select a 'Farm' theme for the nursery,
and of course, have a 'Farm' themed Baby Shower!
This adorable cake was custom created for the expectant couple!

A black & white cow was the only request... 
 the rest of the cake design was left entirely up to me.

I got really creative & had fun with this cake!
All the farm animals are delicately hand-crafted from sugarpaste.
Everything on this cake is completely edible!



Close up detail of the hand-crafted Farm-themed cake topper... 
Too cute!!


This is a deliciously moist Yellow Vanilla Cake,
generously filled with Smooth Chocolate Buttercream.
