Woodland Fairy Baby Shower Cake
It is a woodland scene baby shower cake. All elements are handmade by me and edible. The tree stump is a chocolate cake filled with strawberry Swiss meringue buttercream and covered with fondant (top) and chocolate ganache (sides) fashioned as a tree bark. The toad stool and smaller branch are made from Rice Krispies treat covered with fondant. Leaves, ferns, acorns, smaller mushrooms, an inchworm and a snail are also made from fondant. Flowers and grass on the cake board are made from royal icing, moss is made of crushed graham crackers colored green and a baby-fairy is made from chocolate with gum paste wings covered with edible gold leaf. All elements were painted with color dust to add depth.
