FABBY: Home Made Baby Shower Cake

Hello sweet friends!

            I was so busy what with my g'girls and baking for my dear friend's Dil who is having a baby boy.

I was in charge of baking the cake with a baby boy's motif for 21 guests, mostly us friends of the mother in law, Rebecca, our dearest friend.

Here it is along with my Sil's table setting. The Baby Shower was held at Alejandro's sister's home.

Hope you like the cake, which somehow it ends up costing more than if I had bought a profesional one, lol!  I also made a small one just in case.

I placed the cake in the foyer table, and at left there's a small version of the cake as an extra; just in case! Here, ready to be taken to my Sil's house.

A close up of the 'Baby Shower' cake for a baby boy. Everything is made in sugar, therefore, eatable... the baby figures, the blue roses, as well as the baby booties.

My Sil's beautiful table setting with my Mil's vintage stunning linen, hand embroidered and hand cut work-lace tablecloth made in Spain.

ONLY some of the goodies here!

Here you can appreciate the gorgeous Spanish vintage hand embroidered and hand cut work-lace tablecloth and napkin.

Thank you for your sweet and kind visits my friends, as you always make my day.

Thank you lovely hostesses for having me at your great parties too!

  8. Bonjour ma chère Fabby,

    C'est un véritable chef-d'oeuvre que l'exécution de ce gâteau. Je n'oserais pas y toucher tant il y est magnifique !
    Une table joliment dressée avec comme toujours cette note de raffinement qui te caractérise.
    Et toutes ces mignardises qui jouent dans la cour des grands ! Humm ! Je suis certaine que la maman fut comblée.
    Gros bisous à toi et toutes mes félicitations.

  9. Your cake is just beautiful, Fabby. You did a great job. It's kind of sad that it cost you more than if you had bought it is much more special than a store-bought one, I think.

    Blue for boy seems to be the order o the day and the table setting is so pretty. Love the tablecloth and napkins. Happy baby-to-be. xo Diana

  10. Dearest Fabby,
    What an incredible blue/white embroidered table cloth from Spain. Love that cut work embroidery; what a tedious job.

    Were those glazed figs in the photo?
    Hugs to you dear!

  14. OMG! What an adorable cake and the table is perfect. Cost...isn;t that always the way

  20. Beautiful Baby Boy table Fabby! I know what you mean, sometimes homemade is NOT more economical, but it is definitely more memorable and your cake is beautiful!

  21. Awesome. Creating the perfect love and craving atmosphere for the new baby.
    Small wonder the children in your family are so beautiful and blessed as it starts so before their arrival.
    I loved the cake, all details in it and it could even cost the 10th in a bakery that wouldn't mean and taste the same, I assure you.
    Even outside the blue hour is shinning. Universe is happy with the love you enveloped eachother with.
    Blessings to all of you,
