Baby shower cake: Fernanda
This is a cake with tropical flavors, perfect for a spring baby shower. It consists of layers of pineapple, orange, lemon, passion fruit and banana cake, with banana, vanilla and lemon fillings, butter cream and melon-flavored fondant. Flavor wise, it's probably one of the most elaborate cakes I ever baked. This is one of my favorite cakes ever, even though the marbled fondant originally was a mistake. I mixed vanilla and melon fondant to make the flavor less intense, and had a hard time getting an even color. Then I realized that marbling would be really cute, so I stuck with it.
The baby , blocks and teddy bear are gumpaste, everything else fondant. Everything is, of course, edible.
