Let them eat cake

Baby shower cake that is! Here's the cake I made for Elissa's shower. Turned out better than I expected. My mother in law said "this is what I want it to look like" and that was it, so I figured the rest out. Pictured it in my head and voila. No recipes, patterns, step by steps. So it was do or die...well really it was do or go to Wegmans! The top is an overfilled round 9 inch chocolate with vanilla marble cake. The bottom is a 9x13 yellow cake with chocolate marble. I cut the corners off the bottom, stuffed half of them up by the "neck" area. Tinted my own frosting, used whatever tips I thought would look good. Flesh color obtained by using pink and yellow coloring. Lips and eyes are black and red licorice strings from the bulk section. I don't have smooth spreader thingies so there were some "line" things in the frosting. To finish it off, the final touch was the rosy cheeks. I put a drop of pink coloring on a paper towel and then just dabbed it gently on the frosted face. Stars were bought in a jar of sugar stars. I'm awfully pleased with myself!

Wrong, it was not Marie Antoinette. It's a myth. And now you know. And knowing is half the battle.
