Baby Shower Cake

We made this cake for our cousin's baby shower! The cake had to be unisex because the gender of the baby was a surprise. Two of our blocks were red velvet cake and the other two were carrot cake, both with cream cheese frosting. This was a difficult cake to stack so we created a base for each block from plastic, and inserted wooden dowels into the blocks on the bottom. We tried to use neutral colors of fondant and decorations. This cake was designed to look like building blocks a baby would play with. We decorated the blocks with fondant and icing, and pictures made out or fondant or chocolate. On top of the boxes, we made a bear out of fondant. Next to the boxes we created a train of colored chocolate and green truffle booties.
