Vanilla Bean Cake with Mango Filling

Dark Chocolate Cake with Dulce de Leche Filling

I don’t normally post photos of my inspiration for cakes, because I just feel like it’s a Cake Wrecks Missed Marks waiting to happen.  But, I’m going to take the leap. (:  The shower organizer gave me total creative control, but gave a couple suggestions.  She sent this picture, saying that she fell in love with this cake on Pinterest.  She also suggested a baby/bathtub theme.  The nursery-to-be is going to be outfitted in a jungle theme, but I wasn’t given explicit instructions to theme it up.  I decided on a variation on the photo because I just love the combo of turquoise and lime, plus I feel like so many baby showers are all baby-fied and poor mom gets lost in it all.  I wanted to give her an elegant grown-up baby-shower cake.

I wound up coloring a lot of turquoise fondant, so I did a lighter teal on top in place of plain white.  Also, I should use sugar pearls more often – they’re so lovely.
