Welcome Baby Hug

Another fun cake for Tara & Andy. Tara had me make a Nascar themed cake for Andy's 30th birthday back in June.  This time it was a surf theme cake to welcome their Baby Boy!  I worked off the colors in the baby bedding that she had picked out..reds & blues with a couple palm trees.  All decorations are made out of fondant and the sand is turbanio sugar.  The cake was carrot cake with cream cheese buttercream frosting (recipe below)

Best wishes to Tara & Andy..
Can't wait to see the little guy!

I love that you put pineapple in your carrot cake. I've never understood how others can do without it. Seems the quintessential ingredient to me. The cake is, as always, incredibly beautiful. said...

It really adds to it. I love this recipe
