Spirals & Poms Baby Shower Cake

There’s nothing like a group of women, gathered together, to celebrate a baby on the way.  And a party designed to welcome a precious little baby deserves a precious little cake.  That’s where today’s featured design comes in.  Created for a baby shower and inspired by the event decor, this cake is a tiny piece of party heaven.  Playful pom poms are translated into hundreds of sugar petals nestled tightly together.  Giving this cake a very fabulous, very frilly, pom-like bottom tier.  And if you’re a fan of fun party straws… check out that top tier!  Grey and white spirals resembling the trendy striped straws we see in so many of today’s parties.  It’s a special delivery you don’t want to miss.  Something sweet is on the way…. and it’s this Spirals & Poms Baby Shower Cake!  Created by Rachael Teufel, of Intricate Icings Cake Design in Erie, Colorado.

Rachael of Intricate Icings gives us the scoop on this event:

“We have the pleasure of working with some really amazing vendors in the wedding industry, especially our planner friends.  Boy do they make our lives so much easier when delivering cakes!   So needless to say we were thrilled when Amber of Save the Date Events , contacted us with the exciting news that a fellow planner, Gabby, was expecting.  Amber did an amazing job pulling together some of the cutest baby shower details I have ever seen and what better way to welcome a new baby than to enjoy a tea party with your closest friends.”

Rachael of Intricate Icings tells us more about this cake:

“We adorned this vintage cake with a few hundred petals to create the look of a paper pom on the bottom tier and then spiraled a few stripes to mimic the straws.  I’m in love with the sugar banner honoring baby Hudson.”

    Wow every cake is more beautiful than the next. I wish you could give me private lessons. I teach culinary classes but I’ve never attempted designs like this. I want desperately to learn these techniques.
