If you're looking for Easter Sweets, where ya been? Don't you know I posted those LAST week?
Here, go see. I'll wait. [tapping toe]
All caught up? Ready for more? EXCELLENT.
So today, I figured I'd feature some Sweet baby shower cakes. Because that's almost kind of related to Easter, but not really.
Ah, and look! The perfect segue!

That nubby "fur" texture is amaaaazing. Not to mention the little sugar bicycle!
Of course, you don't always need lots of detail; sometimes a simple design with one fabulous sugar topper will do:

That sprinkle coating perfect! And here's hoping that adorable Heffalump is now decorating some lucky boy or girl's nursery.

WANT. And LOVE.
WANT AND LOVE.
I will now sit here and coo over those teensy butterflies, the handpainted deer, the floral swag, and all the bright yellows and teals and pinks. MMMMM. So good.
Hope your Easter Sunday is as bright and sweet as these cakes!
