Baby Shower Cake

I just finished this cake which is for a baby shower tomorrow at church. It's my first tiered cake. I'm happy with how it turned out and hope it makes it to church in one piece tomorrow (haha)

SOoooo... the nitty gritty. The cake is a two layer (10in and 6in). The top layer is yellow cake with a caramel buttercream filling it is covered with a strawberry and white chocolate marshmallow fondant. --- The bottom layer is a Rich chocolate cake with an oreo filling and chocolate marshmallow fondant. I hope it tastes as yummy as it sounds! I also covered the board in fondant and the baby was modeled a week or so ago and has been waiting for her debut -- well, here she is!

Marshmallow Fondant

I made some more marshmallow fondant -- this time branching out with some flavors. This is the basic recipe I used, I highly recommend this site, it's amazing. http://www.baking911.com/asksarahbb/index.php?showtopic=1100

The one on the left is made with strawberry marshmallows and I added 1 oz of white chocolate. I also added 6oz of mini-white marshmallows, because the pink bag is only 10oz and the recipe calls for 16oz. On the right, we have a chocolate fondant. 1Tbl of cocoa and 1oz of chocolate added to the mix. I used my Kitchenaid to mix them. I'm doing a pink/brown cake. I can't decide if I want to darken the brown up some more -- what do you think? Leave me a comment!
