Giraffe & Baby Carriage Baby Shower Cake

Baby shower cakes are one of my favorite cake projects to do because they represent such happiness and excitement for families.  This particular cake had a heartwarming and happy story behind it which only sweetened the already yummy vanilla and raspberry interior.  This particular couple had been trying to have a baby for years, and had been putting off having a wedding while they pursued several different ways to give them the opportunity for a family.  Sadly, they had no luck conceiving and decided to go ahead with having their wedding.  I was happy to make the bride's cake for her wedding shower just 8 months ago (A lingerie inspired cake).  The bride had a beautiful wedding; however felt incredibly sick on her big day and continued to not feel well in the weeks after.  Following a visit to her doctor, she was stunned to find out that she was pregnant with a baby boy!  I was so honored to make an adorable cake to celebrate such an unexpected and meaningful event for this couple. 
A special family friend of the mother-to-be threw her a baby carriage themed bridal shower in her Central Park West apartment.  I decorated the cake with fondant details including a blue baby carriage and a mommy giraffe, since they plan to decorate the baby's room with a giraffe theme!
 As is tradition with all cakes for this client, I included the mom's name in the design, spelling it out with fondant baby blocks to top off this cute as a button cake! 
This cake was a great experience for several reasons.  It represents the fact that life has many gifts for you, it is just a matter of when you will be given the present.  It showed me that the people of NYC have kind hearted souls.  They offered to hold my cake while I maneuvered through the subway turnstiles and swiped me into the subway after I realized my metro card had fallen out of my pocket.  It made me realize that even though it may seem silly to deliver a cake through the subway instead of taking a Taxi, it is so much more satisfying when the delivery is complete...and well worth the sore biceps (=  It was also great because now I feel like every cake design could use a sweet long necked giraffe to finish it off, it is just so darn cute!
