Triathlon Baby Shower Giraffe Cake

A month or two ago, two local triathlete ladies contacted me and inquired about the possibility of a “Triathlon themed Baby Shower cake” for their friend. How could I resist?

The expecting couple had declined the knowledge of the baby’s gender, so obviously I didn’t know if I should go pink or blue, and that is where the idea of a plush toy came in. I did know from the beginning that the two parents are triathletes and that would be a critical idea to tie into the cake. I really wanted to pull in a lot of detail about what “gear” triathletes tend to race with, along with keeping the fun and playful aspects of a child’s plush toy.

The Gear:

I have to say, whether this Baby is a boy or girl it’s going to be well prepared for it’s first race day! Good luck to parents to be!

This was the perfect cake for Meloday! And, there were a lot of us triathletes there so we all loved the cake!! It was difficult to cut into it for sure because it was so cute! But, it was also very delicious! You did such a great job on this cake. I think we may be contacting you for more cakes in the future. Priscilla

That little button on the tail may or may not have made me squeal :)

This is really cute and beautiful. This is something which, if displayed on a shelf in a store, you just want to look at it and drool for endless hours. I really liked the baby's shoes and baby's hydration belt.

I should add that the cake was not only gorgeous, but DELICIOUS... it was moist and not overly sweet. I can be picky about my baked goods so I was definitely impressed. My hat's off to you again!
