We absolutely loved making this baby shower cake – the Mum-To-Be brought us a couple of designs that she liked and left it up to us to come up with something special for her. We opted for a double barrel (7-layers of sponge!!) lemon sponge cake which was decorated with an elephant theme. As the gender of the baby was unknown, the colour palette was kept neutral with greys and yellows. We created a baby elephant topper holding flowers which matched the flowers on Mum and Dad’s wedding cake (which we made two summers’ before!) sat atop little blossoms, yellow bunting, ‘mummy and daddy elephants’ around the sides and a bespoke bunting topper. Because the cake itself was fairly small, we chose a larger board to give it a lot of impact while sat on display.
