Although this cake looks almost identical to the "Polka Dotted Baby Shower" Cake it is very different. The sheer pink ribbon on top had a shiny boarder on it and the entire cake was covered with Pixie Dust (edible sparkles). It is also three layers of vanilla cake with a Nutella buttercream filling. The writing on the cake was placed on a piece of fondant made to look like a gift tag. It was also covered in silver edible sparkles so that it stood out from the rest of the cake. It was perfect for the mom-to-be because not only did she LOVE nutella, but many of the baby things she has is polka dotted.

The theme of this party was obviously ladybugs and bumblebees. They were so cute when they were on display because the cupcakes were set next to the cookies.
These were sugar cookies covered in fondant with royal icing decorations.
Both of these cupcakes were vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream. The bugs were made out of royal icing.
These are little 2 oz wine glasses filled with the makings of a lemon meringue pie, vanilla wafer crust, lemon curd and topped with a toasted meringue.
These small 3 oz glasses have my cheesecake mouse with strawberries. It is strawberry season so they were so delicious!
I thought these were just extremely fun! They were so bright and happy that it wasn't possible to smile when one looked at them. These are vanilla cupcakes with vanilla buttercream frosting but it would be possible to do any cake flavor as long as it is white to start with. I colored the frosting and layered it in the containers before I baked them and after this experiment I figured out how to layer it so that they show all the colors on the outside.
