@karmalkween: It was yummy and huge! We saved one letter for her actual birth day (but forgot to serve it at her one week old party) and I gave my hubby the dot to the i. I took the letter m to work and fed it to my fourth grade students.

Not a baby shower but a bridal shower. My cake was covered in fondant and honestly, I don’t think anyone ate it (the fondant, not the cake)…

@UpstateCait: yes, we picked off the fondant and ate the flowers and the inside cake.

I think nowadays most people know to just not eat the fondant, just make sure your baker puts a layer of buttercream underneath it (most do).  I attended a shower where everyone got individual cakes that looked like Legos (similar to these)

I had one made for my sisters shower. We had it frosted in buttercream and then had fondant decorations added. I don’t really like fondant but when it’s minimal it’s good.

Ask them to use marshmallow fondant. Its great tasting and just like taffy! The buttercream icing is always underneath so if you don;t care for the fondant, it will still be iced and tasty.

Omg those cakes are so cute!  I don’t have a picture of mine but we did have a fondant cake.  Everyone seemed to love it.  I liked it despite the fondant.  I really don’t like it, the texture and taste are horrible.  But the bakery put a ton of frosting in between the fondant and the cake so it was easy for me to just pick it off and enjoy the rest of the cake.
