Airplane Shower Cake

Hello friends!  I know I haven't said much the past couple of weeks but I'll blame that on still trying to figure out my new schedule and on not having much to say lately.  Actually I've been feeling particularly quiet.  Not sure why that is but I think sometimes it just needs to be.  Remember...Silence is Golden!

My latest creation was for a baby shower this past weekend.  The theme was Aviator and I suggested using the colors of orange, light blue and navy.  Then I decided to do silver too and the navy turned into more of a brighter blue.  The concept was to have an airplane on top of the cake which was the sky with clouds around it and a banner.

I love working with this particular customer, who has placed orders before, because she pretty much let's me design whatever I want.  LOVE those kind of customers.  Not because I can do whatever but because that shows they trust my creativity and eye for design when dealing with a cake.

So here's the finished product which, honestly, turned out much cuter than I initially thought.  I love it when that happens too!  It's a vanilla buttermilk cake with a white chocolate raspberry swiss meringue buttercream.  Yeah, try saying that three times fast!  Actually, don't, just eat it...you'll be glad you did.

I also made little orange and blue propellors for some cupcakes for the kiddos.  Those turned out pretty cute too but we'll just pretend that I have a pic of those, mmmkay.

If I happen to come up with something else exciting to share I'll be sure to let you know.   Until next time...

As always, God bless, leave some love and thanks for stopping by!
