Winter Lamb

This was a 1st birthday cake – winter themed.  The lamb was requested because the little girls nick name involves the word Lamb 🙂  I had so much fun sculpting these little lambs out of fondant.   All I could think about as I made them was that saying “Mares eat oats and does eat oats, but little lambs eat ivy.  A kid’ll eat ivy too, wouldn’t you?”  When I was a kid we went camping in northern WI (Hayward) and they had a few animals at the camp ground – one of them a lamb called Lambsydivy (not sure how they spelled it though!)…  Lambsydivy = lambs eat ivy 😉   For some reason I’ve never forgotten about that lamb.

But enough about my lamb filled childhood 🙂  – we need the rest of the cake details!  There are 2 cakes, sizes 8″ and 10″.  Both pink butter cream icing with royal icing snowflakes I piped out, then painted with a pearl luster dust when dry. Below the cake pics are a few close ups of one of the lambs.


This is a cake I did for a baby shower … mom-to-be is expecting a boy and the design was based off the bedding style/colors & decor.  Cake is fondant covered with fondant accent planes.  The cookies were shower favors in the basic colors of the bedding as well.

Ellen's Baby Shower

I made this cake for my friend Ellen from an online mommy group I belong to (mom’s in WI).  We threw a surprise baby shower for her and I of course volunteered for cake 😉  Here’s what I came up with!  The baby girl sandals on top are made of gumpaste and painted with a pearl luster dust.  Flowers are made of gumpaste and the cake is iced in buttercream …the “clothes” are fondant cut outs.
