We hosted a baby shower for our cousin a few weeks ago. One of my favorite baby shower cookies are these little elephants that we’ve created, and that inspired the theme of the party – baby elephants everywhere! We also wanted to have a cake as a centerpiece to match the elephants. The cake was a four-layer dark chocolate cake with salted caramel buttercream filling and vanilla buttercream on the outside. We created the ombre effect by applying each color layer and then blending them gradually. The elephant cookies were on display next to the guestbook (we had a cute little Dr. Seuss book everybody signed), as favors for people to take on their way out.
