Baby Shower

I delivered a cake yesterday morning for a little boy's baby shower. I guess it was actually for a sprinkle, that seems to be what everyone is calling a baby shower for the second, third baby. They didn't have a theme and my sweetie was lost and had no idea what I should do. The colors were blue and green but the Mom was not doing anything new nursery wise because it's her second boy. So, I asked her what the invitation looked like and she gave me one. The animals were so cute that I decided we'd make it an animal cake. She also asked if I could incorporate some kind of a stripe on the cake like the invitation. She also requested no pink or purple. This cake was my most difficult color match yet. I had to match the invitation, the ribbon, and the monkey. I had to make everything flow, and I think it worked. Can you believe the green on the cake has some orange in it? So here she is. It's a four layer Bavarian cream and chocolate cake iced with butter cream. The animals are fondant. I tried to get a good picture of this cake but there is so much going on that it was hard to get one really good one.

Here is the invitation. I thought these little guys were so cute.
