Baby Shower Season

September 12, 2011

It is baby shower season around here…teddy bears, pink elephants and baby gators.

Sewing, crocheting, stuffing, cooking, and of course cakes and fondant decorations.

Some of the pattern links:

Teddy bears are made of marzipan (just mix almonds with powdered sugar and a bit of water). The teddy bear cake flavor is almonds with dark chocolate and cayenne pepper. It was a little hot, received very interesting comments related to the flavor – is it with alcohol?! is it amaretto? anyway, I’ll use less cayenne next time

Pink elephants are made out of home made fondant (melted marshmallows with powdered sugar and peppermint extract – tastes like bubble gum). The cake is made out of yogurt with heavy whipping cream, tart cherries with white chocolate and the cake batter was dark chocolate. The insides of the cake is with dots, as the cream fillings are layered concentric circles.

Green alligators are made out of Wilton fondant. The cake flavor was Kiwi Lime (kiwi and key lime peel and juice), yogurt and cream of course. The kiwi prevents gelatin from setting, so I will never mix kiwi fruit with any milk based product.

Till next time!

    I’m looking for help with what I think is a serger stitch for a costume for my non-profit. I dress up as a variety of health-promoting characters, one of which wears all black with grey contrast stitching. I’ve asked around locally about adding a stitch to some shorts to match the compression top I wear, but nobody seems to know exactly how to make it. Can I send you a picture to get your thoughts? Thanks!

    Sure, please send it!


  3. Can I simply just say what a comfort to uncover a
    person that genuinely knows what they are discussing on the web.
    You actually know how to bring an issue to light
    and make it important. More people need to read this and understand this side
    of the story. It’s surprising you aren’t more
    popular since you most certainly possess the gift.
