Baby Elephant baby shower

I am so thrilled that my baby brother is going to be a daddy in the next few weeks.  And when he and his partner asked if I could help with the baby shower... well, I was very excited!.

My sister in law chose the very popular baby elephant printables designed by Style me gorgeous, for the invitations, buffet lables party spots and thank you spots.
I love love the baby elephant printables. This design was my inspiration behind the marble mud cake and colour palette for the sweets table.

To say that Studio Cake was soley responsible for the dessert table would be a lie... this was a family affair.. lol
From the design of the cake, to the elements on the table, Hailey was totally involved and very enthusiastic.. We had such a great time constructing the backdrop for the table. A very simple but effective ribbon background.

We wanted to keep the sweets simple and compliment the design of the printables, hence we chose ombre macarons (strawberry, raspberry and lemon), Tim Tam cake pops and a selection of yummy candy!

A very special thank you to my other wonderful sister in law Corrine for making the delicious yo yo's (my all time favourite sweet treat - scroll down for the recipe) and the vanilla cupcakes with buttercream swirl and lemon curd.
