Leopard print Baby Shower Cake

Hello there and thanks for visiting my blog today.

It's been ages since I have blogged !!! But I am alive, well and kicking, Lol. Just been busy dabbling in crafting.

Today I am going to share the baby shower cake I made for my daughter. She wanted the theme to be pink and leopard print. Poppy (my grand-daughter), who the baby shower was for will be One in June. I have been busy making the party stuff for that occasion.. any how... on to the cake.

Everything is edible, apart from the pin-wheels and ribbon.

I do hope you like it and look forward to reading your comments x

Pin-wheel. Wrapped ribbon around kebab skewers.
