Hello Lehlo!



mini whale cake for baby shower!







How cute is my crafty art pal Joanne and her incredible design skills? I love parties with a beautiful design sense, and parties with serious cuteness... such as this whale invite! I made a dark chocolate cake with chocolate ganache filling, with a little fondant whale in the color themes of red and blue, and mini dark chocolate cupcakes with chocolate ganache and colorful sprinkles.

Such a beautiful story too... Joanne's friends Julian and Catherine have adopted a baby from South Africa and have named him Lehlo... beautiful picture of the two of them cutting the Coco Cake whale-topped cake...! Amazing.

The last two pics (and the pic of the lovely couple smooching!) are ones Joanne took of the party... love the set-up, the heart cupcake pics, the goodie bags and the whale/heart theme everywhere!

Congratulations Julian and Catherine on the new addition to your "pod"!
