I was so excited this past fall when some of our good friends told us they were going to have their first baby. It has been so much fun to share in their joy throughout the last several months. As she got closer to her due date, I had the privilege of helping to host a baby shower for Ellie. They found out back in the fall that they were having a boy. Ellie is very creative and likes to sew and has worked as an interior designer. You can imagine all the cute things she has done for the nursery!! When she decided to go with a safari theme, it sent my mind on all kinds of little rabbit trails of ideas I could do for her cake. But in the end, I found the perfect plates and napkins for her shower and that became the inspiration for her cake. As with all my cakes, my heart and soul was in every little detail. It is always special for me to make cakes for people as they celebrate important occasions, but all the more so when it is a dear friend. I think this cake turned out very cute, but cutting all the stripes and spots was definitely a labor of love!!
I was truly thankful for the opportunity to help celebrate this exciting time for Ellie and Keith. I was also glad we had the shower when we did because baby Eli decided to make an early entrance into the world!! He is 7 weeks old today and I don’t know how, but he gets cuter and cuter every time I see him!!
Welcome to the world sweet Eli!! We love you buddy!
