"Buttons and Bows" - 8/10

"Buttons and Bows and Twinkle Toes" was a cute little saying that I thought would go perfectly with the theme of this baby shower cake.  I really love how the colors for this one turned out.  It's just neat to see it all come together just from a vision in your head and a rough sketch on paper;)  The bottom tier was french vanilla with raspberry truffle filling and the top tier was strawberry cake with vanilla buttercream filling.  The cake is covered in marshmallow fondant with pink sugar pearl accents and fondant/gumpaste decorations.  The biggest compliment was when the dad saw the cake and said it looked like one from Cake Boss!!  Thank you and congratulations to Ron and Olivia--Welcome baby Bella! 

Definitely one of my favorites!
