Update! The cake has been resold to it's original buyer and will be enjoyed by many teachers on the first day back to school in nearly a week.
Listen to this:
Two weeks ago I was asked to make a cake for a co-worker's baby shower. She doesn't know what she is having so I was slightly perplexed at how to go about making a gender neutral baby shower cake. I probably looked through 1,000 photos on Cake Central before finally deciding on an idea: a slightly boyish pattern on the bottom tier and a more girly pattern on the top tier. It's been since the summer since I took on such a cake and had the entire weekend (+ 3 snow days) to work on it. The shower was originally supposed to be on Monday but was postponed to Thursday (tomorrow) since we were out because of the snow/ice. Since I hate dried out cake I waited as long as I could to make it and have been working on it off and on yesterday and today.
Tonight I finished it up and was happy to be done before 10:00. I was thinking of getting ready for bed and worry about how I was going to get it to work in the morning. Then...I decided to check my work e-mail. As of 9:00 p.m., the baby shower has been postponed again...UNTIL THE BABY IS BORN!!!!!!!
This cake isn't going to wait around for that!!!!
Now, what to do for my gender neutral baby shower cake that I was going to get $30 for? Will I still get that $30?!?!?
I'm planning on finding out that soon, but in the meantime, if you are in need of a cake (and a lot of it!) feel free to take it off my hands! Well, not "free" but maybe at a reduced price.
Easy to assemble!
Beatty's Chocolate Cake with Vanilla Buttercream!
Homemade Marshmallow Fondant!
Since it's "gender neutral" it'll work for any occasion!
