My friend commissioned this cake for her friend’s baby shower. She called me up and said “Shantal, we want a baby shower cake, a candy theme for a boy. The colors are going to be blue, white and brown, and we want lollipops!!”
So after mulling over a few ideas, I came up with the cake you see pictured above. For those of you interested in replicating this cake, and you live in Los Angeles, I will warn you that those lollipops were definitely not easy to find. I had to do some online researching to find the shade of blue I wanted. I threw in the brown for some contrast.
Here is an up-close shot of the border details. I will give credit to my wonderful assistant, Nathaly, for sculpting the adorable little caramels out of fondant, which we placed along each ribbon. The green puffs are mini-marshmallows. We thought the soft green added a nice contrast to the cake.
Here’s the best part! The cake in full glory set up! I was so excited when I saw that my friend and I ended up having similar ideas with the shades of blues, and we even bought the same lollipops without even discussing details!
Hope you enjoyed this cake!
