Oh Boy! Baby Shower!

Congratulations to Catherine and Han on their arriving baby boy, Kolin!! This baby shower's theme is Sea Critters! The octopus, blow fish, crab, sting ray, turtle and "It's a boy!" decorations are all made out of fondant. Half the cupcakes are carrot cake cupcakes with whipped cream cheese frosting and the other half are vanilla cupcakes with basic buttercream frosting! These decorations were especially fun (but also challenging) to make because this was the first time I use my new razor blade to free hand the shapes! It makes such a difference when you have a super sharp blade compared to a normal knife! There's something about the free flowing movement of the knife through the fondant that's exhilarating and scary at the same time, because if you mess up, you pretty much have to start over. However, just like with anything I do, it's all about practice! Exploring new techniques and being able to be creative keeps me going. Anyways, once again, congrats to Catherine and Han, we eagerly await the arrival of Kolin!!
