In this cake tutorial, I'll show you how to create a SWEET baby bassinet cake topper as well as delicate eyelet accents for your baby shower cakes!
No matter how simple a cake may be, a cake topper adds instant personality..and in this case, our bassinet topper brings a dose of adorable as well as elegance. Love how it came out! I also demonstrate another simple favorite of mine, eyelet! It's the perfect accent for your spring and summer cakes (and very simple to create too!)
