I am a really big fan of all those cake decorating shows. Especially the ones where cake artists compete. I usually watch them with my mother in law and we are just astounded by the talent and art that goes in to these cakes. Well for my baby shower she ordered me a cake from the local bakery called Vanilla Swirl. The cake at the shower really impressed me. It was so cute decorated with cut outs of little hands, and it read "Welcome Baby Zoe". It was so sweet and yummy! It was ordered for around 50 people and everyone got a nice big hunk of cake plus there was a good portion for me to take home as well and at 8 months pregnant at the time I was very ok with that. When it came time for Zoe to get baptised I chose to get her cake from The Vanilla Swirl Bakery as well. I had ordered a cake big enough for 50 and once again had pleanty to take home. The filling choices are great they offer lots of choices. For her baptism cake I had raspberry filling, white cake, and white chocolate frosting. The "frosting" is really fondant. If you have never had fondant before it is super sweet. Although I am not a huge fan of fondant, I really like that they can do so much more artistically by using it. Compared to the other designs that the bakery offers her cakes were plain. They have cakes that you would swear were real shoes in a shoe box, or handbags, or a bunch of fresh cut flowers. I kept her cake simply decorated though seeing as it was a church event. ( I did have irredescent sugar sparkles on the cake though!)
