Erica's Baby Shower

It's a girl for Erica! For her baby shower, we had a two tiers of white almond sour cream cake draped with pale pink marshmallow fondant and filled with pink Swiss meringue buttercream as well as strawberry and vanilla cupcakes to boot.  Harper Quinn is due to arrive in December.
Fresh mini carnations topped the cake, surrounding the gumpaste name badge. I also used sugar gems on this cake for the first time.  They were placed at the intersections of the white diamond shapes on the bottom tier.  They looked exactly like real diamonds and were a delicate touch. This was also the the first time I got to play with my new fondant extruder to make the stripes and thin ropes - love it. My new favorite toy.

Strawberry cupcakes with cream cheese buttercream frosting.  Marshmallow fondant flowers.  
White cupcakes with pink Swiss meringue buttercream frosting.  White chocolate topper embossed with an "H" for Harper. 
Congratulations Erica!!
