Welcome Baby Angel

This cake was ordered for a large party to celebrate the anticipated arrival of Baby Angel. When I arrived to deliver the cake, family and friends were busy cooking up lots of food that smelled delicious and decorating the home - baby Angel is already getting spoiled! The cake is a 12 inch round which is approximately 45 servings - cake is white almond sour cream filled with 3 layers of strawberry mousse, iced with American buttercream and decorated with fondant with a blue, purple, white and yellow color theme. The baby booties are made from sugar and can be kept as a keepsake.

They also ordered white chocolate suckers as party favors - pacifiers, diapers, baby booties and "its a boy".
