Winnie the Pooh Cake

This sweet little cake was made for a Winnie the Pooh themed baby shower!

It was so fun to make this cake in incorporate all the tiny details.

I checked out a copy of Winnie the Pooh from the library (though I really must get my own copy) and selected a scene from one of my favorite stories.  Then I painted it onto MM Fondant and let it dry.  I also make some little fondant bumblebees with almond wings.

The cake was covered in buttercream and then topped with chocolate ganache.

While the ganache was still wet, I took bubble wrap (that I had sprayed with cooking spray), pressed it firmly onto the ganache, and set it in the refrigerator to cool. 

Once the ganache was fully set (I recommend several hours, just to be sure), I gently (and slowly) peeled the bubble wrap off to reveal a honeycomb design in the ganache!  I loved it!

Then, all I had to do was stick the tree and Winnie the Pooh to the cake and place the bumblebees!  It was a perfect way to welcome a new baby!
