Hey there! I have another cake to share! This cake was for a Moroccan themed baby shower! My client wanted a beautiful, elegant cake that didn’t scream “baby shower.” I was sent this link as inspiration: A Fabulous Moroccan Baby Shower. If you checked out the link, then you’ll know why I got excited about designing this cake! Look at all the fun, vibrant colors!
After a minor adjustment to they type of flowers I would use… I came up with this final sketch.
And…. this is the completed cake!
… I love it!
The top tier was inspired by the gold headdress I saw in the inspiration photos…. I piped the chain with royal icing and made the little charms from fondant.
Rather than red roses, we went with a less formal, golden yellow, “fantasy” fashion flower. I used my peony cutters and embossed the petals with a “Moroccan-esque” pattern. The flowers were dusted with gold luster dust and the edges of the petals painted with 24k gold dust/paint!
My favorite part of working on this cake (well at least one of my favorites) was painting everything gold!!
This cake was so much fun to design and to work on. I really love how it came out! I love the fun colors, the gold detail and the pretty flowers!
Thanks for taking a look at my photos… I hope you were inspired!
Happy Caking 🙂

You can use the dust as paint by adding a couple drops of lemon juice and it works great! Hope this helps 🙂
