Baby shower cake

Saturday afternoon, Kim and I (another lady at our church) hosted a baby shower for my (our) friend Laura.

I made the cake!

Laura has such a cute nursery theme, pale green and off white and pictures of nursery rhymes and more.

Kim had bought plates and things with polka dots on them in pink, so I wanted to combine the two and was thinking about a nursery rhyme with the word DOT in it, for about 2hrs one day I was set on Hickory Dickory Dot…. then hubby told me the mouse went up the clock NOT the clot! eww---- LOL but when I told Kim about it, she said to still do it.

So here’s the result.

I used 3 circle pans and the bottom was frosted in bright pink, the second in pale green and the top in white.

Then I added polka dots on the bottom (my 10yr old daughter helped) and covered most of the top one with light brown like a clock.

and VOILA! after more details and writing on it and a pecan covered in dark frosting for a mouse, I had Hickory Dickory Dockt the mouse went up the clock.

See the little mouse!

and I crossed out the CK in Dock and added the T……

On the back of the clock I wrote BABY TIME!

The cake inside was a boxed strawberry cake mix (used 4 boxes)

Everyone liked the cake, of course I look at it and see my mistakes, but overall I was happy with it.

I also gave Laura this quilt also since we’re sewing buddies Smile

It was a fun party!

Laura has a little over 3 weeks left.

Just found out that another lady at church just had their first baby Sunday morning.
