Tree Baby Shower
The mom’s in my son’s class wanted to hold a baby shower for both our class and the partner class (47 kids!). I provided the cake and fifty sets of cookies as party favors. The children made a tree wall hanging, each one painted a leaf and wrote their name. There was a heart in the center of the trunk, and I used this as the design for the cake and cookies.
10, 8, and 6" tiers. Top and bottom are chocolate with vanilla buttercream. Center is double-barrel vanilla with vanilla buttercream. The teacher took the top layer home to share with her husband.
Thanks to Callye of http://www.sweetsugarbelle.com/ for the wood-grain idea (from a father’s day post a couple of years ago).
