They're on their way -- two little ones - a boy and a girl - to two happy families. These are the cakes I did for the shower. These cakes sat on top of a cupcake tower I made from PVC pipe and cake rounds. I wasn't able to attend the shower, so I didn't get pictures of the finished product - I'll post just as soon as someone forwards them on to me.
The top of the cakes were styrofoam rounds covered in fondant.
