These cute mini cakes ended up being awesome for my friends baby shower. Each one was pink. The recipe is easy to follow and straight forward when it comes to how it needs to be decorated. I went a little lighter when it came to tinting the fondant pink. Make sure to really work the fondant before tinting, made it easier for me.
