"Hero Bear" Baby Shower Cake

Hero Bear and The Kid is an old comic book/strip and the theme for this baby shower.  I had never heard of it, but once I browsed some images I loved it!  So cute.  This is a very simple short 2-tier cake with a matching topper and banner.  The cake is a new flavor that I tried - Dark Chocolate Cherry frosted with vanilla-almond buttercream.  I thought it was pretty good and am looking forward to some feedback.

Zebra Print Cake

This fun Zebra cake is a red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting as filling.  It is all frosted with vanilla buttercream, while the top was also covered with sugar sprinkles.  The zebra print is actually sugar paper that was pre-printed, saving me lots of decorating time.  I don't often use products like this, but it seemed right for this cake.  I also made the topper to match.
