Baby Shower Cake for Twins

About to welcome twins to the family, grandmother Sandy and aunt Ali came to me with a very special cake request for the baby shower.  The father-to-be of the twin boys cannot wait to take his sons fishing.  He told his mom that he expects he will be spending a lot of time untangling fishing lines in the years to come and Sandy wanted this to be the inspiration for the cake!   I sculpted two adorable little babies in diapers with fishing rods in their hands.  Their lines are already tangled!    Since there is a long-standing hockey rivalry between Ali and her brother I created a Leaf mascot teddy bear and a Penquins mascot "stuffie" which I imagined the little boys would drag around everywhere. 


The "water" of the stream is full of fish and rocks and a pair of rubber ducks bob along too.  At the edge of the water sit a couple of turtles, reeds and rushes "grow" under the dock, yellow finches gather, and it appears the boys left their bouncy balls beside one of the evergreen bushes.


I made this cake in brown sugar marble, with brown sugar Swiss meringue buttercream under the homemade fondant and each slice was served with a delicious caramel sauce.  It was a real privilege to make this cake for the growing family and I wish them all much happiness and love in the months and years ahead!
