Oh Boy!

A friend asked me to make a baby shower cake as her sister in law was expecting a boy. She had a couple of requests. Colors were to be blue, green, brown and ivory. Flavoring had to be both Vanilla and chocolate. She also requested baby shoes and baby blocks that represented the soon to be babies initials, Jordan Alexander Valentine, the #23 to represent her brother's basketball jersey # and a basketball. I had free reign with the design and decided to keep it simple as the added accents would dress it up. Bottom tier is vanilla, top is chocolate, both covered in buttercream and fondant. The baby shoes were made out of gumpaste, the baby blocks are made out of rice crispy squares and then covered in buttercream and fondant.Top view of the cake.A view of the baby blocksA side image of the attempted "converse" shoes
