Pink, White, and Gray Chevron Baby Shower Cake
My daughter, Rebecca Joye, with a little assistance from me, made this cute baby shower cake for her sister-in-law. It is a lemon cake with lemon buttercream, and covered in fondant. The flower is a gumpaste peony, the "poles" were made using dowels decorated in ribbons and fondant, and the fondant pennants were hung on braided embroidery threads. The elephant and chevron decorations were a 50/50 fondant/gumpaste mix.
