Sugar Babies

This is a baby themed post. Well, not actual babies, although it does lead, in the end, to actual babies. I have a bunch of friends and coworkers who are all expecting in a few months and I have been scouring the internet for more baby patterns. I've already casted on for a feather and fan blanket in white for one friend who doesn't yet know the sex of her baby. I think blankets make nice gifts and all of the blankets that I've gifted have been put to good use.This weekend I made my first commissioned baby shower cake for the daughter of a friend/coworker. The shower was for two expectant moms, one having a boy and one having a girl. I needed to make a cake that would be appropriate for both and made this one with little angels floating around it holding piping bags.I am pleased with it and as usual went a little overboard and made these tiny babies out of fondant.They make me laugh. They got placed in the silver gazebo on top. I thought it may be a little creepy but T insisted that the babies be included on the cake. I hope someone eats them.

I'm not sure if it's as cold where you are as it is here but hope that you're staying warm and sane.
