Hi Everyone, I am a newlywed and have always loved to cook, bake, and entertain. Lately I decided to start making cakes and now I can't stop; whether its cakes, cupcakes, cake truffles, etc!! I just love everything about them... the creativity, versatility, and the love that they bring to those who eat them.

Nautical Themed Baby Shower Cake & Cupcakes!

This baby shower party was for my twin sister's 2nd baby, Noah Reed Lichtenberg.
I know you are only supposed to throw showers for the first baby, but since she was having a boy this time, we felt it was appropriate (and a great excuse for a party)!!
I couldn't decide whether to make a cake or cupcakes for this baby shower so I decided to get my dad (who is amazing at building things) to make me a cake / cupcake stand! This way we could have a cake AND cupcakes..... how PERFECT!
So to match the nautical theme, I decided to make a sail boat for the cake, and then using fondant I made little ducky’s sitting on life preserver rings and baby booties..  (They took FOREVER to finish, but they were worth it!)   I just love the way they all turned out.

The handy man himself...  (Thanks again dad!)

And here are just a few pictures of other decorations we had for the party....

Aren't these little onesie rice krispy treats just adorable???
