Besides the cake, I also made the little banner and designed the invitations shown here.
This baby shower was for my sister-in-law who expecting her second child, a baby boy. Daddy was in the navy and the nursery will have the stripe pattern shown on the invitation. So to incorporate both those things I wanted to just have a few nautical/sailor touches for the party. The sailor hat cake was a small and simple vanilla cake frosted with vanilla buttercream. To create the edge of the hat rim I used a frosting sheet with the edge folded over and wrapped it around the perimeter of the cake. The cupcakes were lemon cake with vanilla frosting, simply topped with a wintergreen Lifesaver.
