A Baby Shower for Lucas

Welcome Lucas!

There is nothing more amazing than holding a newborn baby in your arms for the first time. We love celebrating every addition to a family. Lucas will be the proud owner of those darling booties on the top of the cake and his cute mommy was the recipient of a very fun cake.

I love to quilt, when I am not baking, decorating or spending time with my family, which means I don't get much time to quilt. Making a cake that looks like a quilt was even more fun though. This cake was covered in modeling chocolate, which is a lot like fondant but tastes like white chocolate. YUM!!!

I loved the way the patterns on the "fabrics" were all different, but flowed well together.
This cake reminds me of all the hours spent wandering through fabric stores with my mom and sisters. We could spend all day at a fabric store, talking about the possibilities of the quilts we could make and who we could make them for. Fabrics have a wonderful way of bringing back lost memories, like a dress you wore when you were a child or the apron your grandmother wore.  I think in that way cakes are like quilts. They bring warmth and love, whether you are the giver or the receiver.
