Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was one of the most fun cakes I have made so far to have my sister and mother be a part of. We have been testing out some of the different cakes and doing them together and it was great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made one similar to this for a baby girls shower. I actually cut the cake into blocks and decorated letter blocks in pink and white :) I had fun making them and everyone loved the cake!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this cake for my cousin's baby shower. We didn't know if she was having a girl or a boy so we kept it gender neutral. This is the perfect design for a gender neutral baby shower, and could easily be modified to match the shower's color theme etc.
