Bridal Shower Tier Cake

How can this be??? Wasn't it just yesterday that my husband and I spent hours looking into those tiny eyes? Softly kissing those pink cheeks and all ten toes? Each time our grandchildren were born, this amazing love rose up and came to live in our hearts and souls. But only one was the first. His name is John. And we can't (and probably don't want to) kiss his toes anymore. No, the hands on the clock spun around and before we knew it our tiny firstborn grandson wasn't measured in inches but in feet...Six feet something. And here we are at the end of the day of a wedding shower for John and his soon to be bride. Wedding shower! I'm still shaking my head. So what does a MiMi do? She bakes and decorates a shower cake, of course!

All layers  are vanilla cakes with homemade White Chocolate Swiss meringue butter cream filling.  Each tier is covered with fondant tinted in the bride-to-be's colors.  Dots and scrolls with tinted royal icing complete the sides and beads are rolled fondant pieces.  The cake was topped with two handmade gum paste lilies and a Best Wishes fondant banner.  This was my first attempt at a tiered cake.  I stopped hyperventilating when I set the cake on my mother-in-law's table. (Not really, but I think my heart did get a workout)  I'm such a wimp.  I wonder how many of these stacked cakes one has to do before a little confidence inches its way into the heart? Beautiful shower with family and prayer for a happy marriage! 
We both wish for you the best that God has to offer!
 You are dearly loved!!!
