Baby Cake

This was my first "commissioned" cake!

My sister-in-law's sister-in-law (I know, confusing) was hosting a baby shower, and needed a cake. My sister-in-law told her that I had made a couple of cute ones, and so she called me.

I decided to sculpt a baby, but my husband thought that was too ambitious. This was, after all, only my third fondant cake. Thank goodness I don't listen to him about artistic stuff!
I sat down at the kitchen counter, put on Ace of Cakes for inspiration, and set to work. A couple of hours later, I had finished her. She was so cute, I didn't want to give her up! I called my husband in to see, and he was amazed!!! As was I.
