Donna’s baby shower

Donna’s very early baby shower was on Saturday.  Her little baby boy is only due in May next year but as her sister is emigrating soon, Robyn didn’t want to miss the opportunity of holding a baby shower for Donna.  It was awesome!  And she was given gifts galore !   What a wonderful way to start gathering baby stuff months before baby is due with a baby shower first !!!   She can now eliminate items from her own baby shopping list.  Fantastic idea !

The theme for the shower was little lambs… too cute !!   Donna and her hubby were told they were having a baby boy only days before the shower, therefore blue in the décor was minimal.  I made the cake … my usual choccie cake!   As I’ve mentioned in many posts, I do not know how to make sugar figurines or sugar art of any sort, I use real toys etc.  How difficult it was to find lambs !!!!!  There were plenty of baby goats, ducks, horses, cows, pigs but no baby sheep anywhere!    Finally, lambs found !

Usually my cake decorating tells a story, which in this case is as follows :-  three little lambs are lost in a meadow of Gypsophila (or Baby’s Breath)    First little lamb finds a path out of white meadow and others follow .. as lambs/sheep do 😉

This furry cutie lamb was the only one I found initially …

Checking for teeth seemed the right thing to do 🙂
