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

Love this baby mould. Decided to dress her up.

Pin-wheel. Wrapped ribbon around kebab skewers.

This was my first time ever of doing this.
I am very pleased with the outcome. I obviously had to wait until the cake was cut at the baby shower.

Thanks for taking time to look at my blog today. Leave a comment and I will pop on over and visit you too.

I am going to enter this into the following challenges:- (I did think twice about adding this into some challenges, but I thought, I have used ribbons, dies cuts, edible glitter, pearls, Gems, patterned & Plain rice paper, made pin-wheels and bunting ..... everything that can be used on a card, so I am going for it) x

Planning of my friend's bridal shower at any of the famous event space Chicago is also on full swing. Decorations with ribbons, buntings, balloons and flowers will be done. Hoping to make it sheer memorable for the bride to be.
