Yes, It's a GIRL!
Rebecca and Shawn are due to have their first baby on February 9th!
Oh my goodness what excitement we are all feeling!
Saturday we had a baby shower for Becca! What fun it was.
Great friends and family all joined in visiting and games and food!
The theme was mommy and baby birds,
similar to her invitation created by Cassie(go to
to find the invitation ideas she designed!
The top tier of the cake is a gumpaste bird house put together with royal icing. It is hollow, sitting on a small plate.
the dowel going through the two lower tiers is PVC and is fondant painted to look like a tree trunk.
the next tier is an 8" cake covered with fondant and hand painted stripes to give it that modern feel that Becca wanted. The birdies and lettering was done with gumpaste.
The bottom tier is also fondant, with painted branches and gumpaste flowers,
This was a very different design for a baby shower, but it was a whimsical way to enjoy a party!
We Love You Becca!
