A baby shower

This past weekend I helped host a family baby shower for my friend, Tracey. Her husband and three boys moved back to the US last year after being missionaries in Togo. They were surprised when they found at they were expecting again...and to find out it was another BOY!!! So, we decided to have the whole family at the shower to help their boys (from 6 to 11 y/o) be a part of welcoming this new baby. One of the families wrote out advice for the three boys on how to be a good big brother to their baby boy who will be arrving soon. It made the afternoon very special. I was in charge of making the cake for the shower. I decided to make a baby block and spelled out "BABY" with a letter on each side.

Since there were kids at the shower, I decided to also make mini cupcakes as well. The cake was chocolate with buttercream icing and the cupcakes were vanilla with a buttercream glaze icing.

Looking forward to making my next cake! Anyone in need of one?
