Hydrangeas are one of my favorite flowers! When we moved into our house I planted two of them and I just love them. They are so beautiful. This cake is stunning Amanda!


Just as amazing as your rose cake, you have some talent!


Surprise! Happy Baby Shower! Congrats on your 4th! And, what a beautiful cake!

It's a fantastic presentation to kick off the spring.

Kisses and good week


What pastry tip size did you use to create the flowers?

Beautiful cake Amanda! You just amaze me every time. And you must be one of the most patient people around to be able to ice like that. So purty!


Where do you find your energy?!!! Lovely picture and lovely cake!

Wow! My little guy is going to be one and I've been trying to come up with a cool giraffe cake idea. Wish I had your talent for making cakes from insanely difficult inspirations! Amazing!


Gorgeous! I love it.


You are a beautiful and lovely blogger. I'm sure this is just a drop in the bucket in representation of all you are. Have a wonderful event welcoming this new life to your world, both real and virtual.

Amanda you certainly deserve this baby shower! I hope you feel special today and every day! Congrats!

And I just want to tell you that it is such a tribute to your grandma to make this cake inspired by her. How very blessed you are to have her in your life. The cake is beautiful and I love to see the slice on the plate. Truly a work of art!

Your cakes always amaze me, but this one seems special. My mom loves hydreangeas and huge snowball hydreangea bushes all around her house. You've captured the flowers perfectly! Great job!

Brenda @ a farmgirl's dabbles

Amanda! I just adore hydrangea - if I had to choose only one plant for my yard, that would be it! You did such a lovely job!!


Okay so first and foremost, amazing cake! absolutely beautiful.
Second, Happy Baby Shower!


I guess I don't tweet enough I totally missed your shower. : ( Poo. I would have made you some yummy Scones or something. Well I hope you had a great time with out me. I have four kiddos. (4 in 51/2 years) So I know what you are in for, I will also send prayers your way.


Wow. Just gorgeous!! I love Hydrangea's also. I can't wait to try this cake out!! :)


Your cake is beautiful and you have some awesome friends! Love that they threw you a *virtual* shower and the appetizers, drinks desserts, and cards they served up are all so delightful.

Happy Baby Shower Day too! How fun! Can't wait to meet your little man!


My brain was already thinking how perfect this would be for a bridal shower or wedding! The lemon curd filling sounds delightful.

And, how the virtual baby shower thing is too sweet!

Sylvie @ Gourmande in the Kitchen

Happy Surprise Baby Shower!!! I'm so glad we were able to surprise you today, I'm just sorry that we weren't able to really throw you one in person. How fun would that be! And how much food would we eat, lol! Maybe one day, for baby #5 perhaps? :-) - Love you ♥

Lovely watercolour paint ♥

I've been trying to come up with a theme for my final cake in my decorating class, and I'd love to do this beautiful cake! Please post a tutorial! Did you make each flower first, then place them on the cake, or pipe it directly on the cake? What tip did you use?

And congrats! Good luck with everything!! You're amazing.


My absolute favorite flowers!!!! This cake is one of the most amazing I have ever seen.



I love hydrangeas, too. I don't always make a birthday cake for myself, but this year I think I have to have this cake!

It sounds like you have better things to do than write a tutorial right now (!), but could you tell us what tip you used to make the flowers? I can probably muddle through from there.


Stunning!!! Love all your designs. You are awesome!! Can you give us a quick post on what pastry tip size you used to create the beautiful flowers!!


That hydrangea cake is GORGEOUS and congrats on your new little one!


Your cake is amazing!.....and you are delivering next week??? S-U-P-E-R M-O-M!

Happy Baby Shower and thanks to all of your thoughtful friends for including us in your celebration! God Bless you all :)
