The Pooh Cake
This cake was the most personal cake I have ever made. It was very special to me and I wanted to do a really good job. My very best friend in the whole wide world, Lindsay had her baby shower in Vegas this weekend. The theme for baby Ava Jai's nursery is classic Winnie the Pooh. We wanted to do something simple yet lovely and I think we achieved that. The road trip was interesting. I have never traveled with a fondant covered cake before and the elevation wrecked havoc! Poor thing was in shambles as we arrived. But I had planned on doing the majority of the decorating at her house, so we immediately got to work and fixed the sad little cake up in no time! I especially liked making Pooh and Piglet. Figurines are my favorite thing to do! The honey pots could not have come out cuter...with real honey dripping over the edge and all! Shout out to my Vegas helper, Sara Otis and my mom, Sue and Madi too! It came together and was a hit at the shower. I was so honored to be able to do that for my bestie! Look out California shower....I am seeing a carved cake in your future!
