When I started making special cakes for my children's birthdays, I never knew it would lead me here. Covered in powdered sugar, fingernails dyed with food coloring, and running to weddings and birthday parties. Follow me here where all my Frosted Fantasies are on display to browse.

One Quack of a Baby Shower

There it is!! The cake I made for my self.
 Actually, this is the very first cake I have actually made for me. Usually it is a birthday or something for someone else, but not today! Well, it sort of is for the baby kicking me from the inside out, I suppose. Oh well!

This party was held at the fire station my hubby works out of. Not planning on making anything but a baby butt cake, my design emerged at about ten o'clock at night. I was working the white fondant, thinking of what color to make the blanket. Envisioning what pattern I could make. Since I was going the easy way and decorated with rubber ducks in cups, I thought I could throw some duck on it. Trying to keep it simple, since I know I can get lost in the details of a cake, I convinced myself it was an easy shape to cut out and it wouldn't take long at all. 

I should have known...

Then, I started thinking about a little fire fighting rubber ducky my boys used to have, when they were babies. I thought, "Oh that would be cute!" Before I knew it, the time had flown by and it was one o'clock in the morning, and I was brushing off edible blue sparkles off of my hands.

    It was totally worth it! This baby butt and baby feet cake were a smashing hit. The fact that it was a firefighter duck cake made it even more special. Thanks me!!
