Sand Castle Cake and Newborn Photography

I know I said I’d try to keep my family off this blog since it’s a CAKE blog…but I can’t resist this post.  One week after Mikaela was born, my friend Elise Kersey of Elise Kersey Photography took some newborn photos at a local beach.

We got there EARLY so we could catch the sunrise.
Little Mikaela loved the warm weather – and it made her so sleepy!
But wait!  This blog post does relate to cakes!  I made a sand castle cake for the photo shoot.
 The whole cake was covered with light brown sugar, and I decorated it with hand-made gum paste shells and a piece of fondant driftwood into which Mikaela’s name was carved.

Our sweet baby girl is now 7 weeks old.  She’s chubbier and she now smiles at us, but she’s still a beach bum at heart.  We have a picture of a beach hanging above her changing table and she loves to lay there smiling and coo-ing at it.  We’re excited to take her to the beach for her first ocean swim one day!

  1. I'm so glad you decided to add pictures of your former "bun in the over" to you cake pictures. She's truly beautiful. What a lovely blessing.
