A Shower to Celebrate Baby Cake is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this cake last night but changed it slightly. for the umbrella part I followed the instructions for the umbrella in the Romance in the Rain cake. I didn't like the idea of attaching all those pieces so I rolled out the fondant in one piece and placed it on the outside of the sports ball pan. It was a perfect fit-jsut be gentle-I cracked it a little. then I decorated with the tip 131 and embosser. It was quite easy once all the parts were ready to go and it made a great center piece!
