Beach Theme Baby Shower

Now, it is the younger sister's turn to have her baby shower. This cake was done for the sister of the teapot cake I did a few weeks ago...I hope that made sense. She had a beach theme baby shower since she is having a baby boy. The decor was amazing.

She wanted the same set-up as her sister's cake: a small cake on top with cupcakes along the bottom and the cupcake stand. She sent me a picture of what she liked and it gave me great ideas.

I started off with the baby. It's made of fondant/gumpaste. This was the first time I made a figurine, other than a little bear I did. I think it came out pretty good for the first time.

I added other figures as well, such as the beach ball the baby is holding, the little crab and the flip flops.
Hubby also helped out and did a great job. He made the lifesaver with the rope, the bucket with the little sailboat and the rake.

The cake itself was a 6-inch vanilla butter rum with a dulce de leche cream filling. I covered it in a marbelized fondant. Around the border of the cake, I covered it with brown sugar and topped the cake with a little bit as well.

The cupcakes are also vanilla butter rum with a dulce de leche cream filling. I also swirled and marbelized the buttercream to give it that ocean color effect. I topped each cupcake with a white chocolate seashell.

As for the cupcake stand, it's covered in a semi-shiny white fabric. The bottom board edge is wrapped in a blue ribbon with sewn daggling beads and sequins. The top 2 boards have a ribbon that is used for scrapbooking that I found perfect for this. It's white with the words "Sea waves blue surf tide splash." Absolutely adorable!!!
