On Saturday, a group of wonderful people gathered in a beautiful backyard in Brooklyn to celebrate the upcoming arrival of a sweet baby boy.
I wanted to create a sophisticated cake for the occasion and finally decided on a simple white cake with vanilla bean buttercream, colored to a robin egg blue.
Using a small pedal tip, I created whimsical zig-zags around the top and bottom of the cake with uncolored buttercream.
I served mini whoopie pies alongside the cake, which visually contrasted nicely with the cake, but also provided a taste of chocolate.
It was a gorgeous afternoon, complete with good food, great company and much excitement.
I can hardly wait to meet 'Little Erik'!
