Goreti ...

First thing I would do would be cover the board with fondant. Normally would do that a couple of days before and before placing cake. Since you already have the cake, I would place it right up to the cake and add a border like you did to the top tier. See how that looks. If you still feel it needs something perhaps you can cut some silhouettes of baby things like some of the items on here (http://www.shutterstock.com/s/%22baby+stuff%22/search.html). I would probably do it in the blue that you have already used.

I would agree with everything Goreti has said, I would put some little baby things around, maybe a dummy, rattle, things like that. Is that the little nest you made on top Amber? Could you maybe make a quick little baby and sit in the nest or even just a cute animal? x
P.s The link Goreti has given you is brilliant, you could make lots of baby things looking at those pics! :-)

Have you thought about cutting out things like little feet, hands, baby bottles and place around the cake. I put hands & feet on my daughters bebe shower cake. Would soften the look. Could do them in blue to match the fondant balls. You can find inexpensive cookie cutters at Michael’s, Wal Mart. Also, Wal Mart sells a really cute Wilton baby topper. You could pop that on top.

Amber you did a great job! Im sorry for you that she doesn’t like it :-( Don’t panic, I’m sure you will make it right for her! :-) x

We’ll Amber…I’m definitely not a Camo fan. But this is what your customer wants, and you have achieved that. Ashamed about the fondant balls…I think there pretty. But to each there own. And your baby is cute. With all the trouble, I’d just add the ribbon and be done with it.

Goreti ...

That is a shame. I think that adding them made a big difference on the cake. Did she give you an idea what she does like?
