Teddy Bear Baby Shower Cake & Cupcakes

Baby shower cakes are so much fun. They're always so darn cute and cuddly. I'm glad I don't have to stick around and cut into them! We created this teddy bear themed baby shower cake and matching cupcakes for a client we met at the Minneapolis Farmers Market on Sunday.

The mother-to-be is having a boy, so shades of brown and blue seemed appropriate. The cake flavor was Almond Cake with Raspberry Buttercream... yum!

This cute teddy bear cake topper was molded from fondant. Joe has a lot of fun making cute little animals.

Four dozen cupcakes were also included in the order for guests to enjoy. Cupcake flavors included: Coconut Cake with Lemon Cream Cheese Icing & Valrhona Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Buttercream.

We received some wonderful feedback as well:

"I just wanted to thank you so much for the wonderful job you guys did for the baby shower. The new mom to be said a picture of the cake will be going in the baby book. The teddy bear was so cute, and the cupcakes were delicious. The coconut with lemon cream cheese was my favorite, and everyone thought the chocolate icing tasted like ice cream."

I am visiting your blog for the first time today and you do some wonderful things. I was at the Juut Uptown location for their open house and tried your macaroons- awesome! They reminded me of Laduree in Paris, such a treat. Are you at the Mpls farmers market every weekend? I'd love to stop by sometime. Thanks!
