I FINALLY DID IT

I made this cake that I have wanted to make for so long and it was so amazing. I just can't believe it!

Here is what it looked like on the web:
And here is mine:

This is a close up before I painted her hair and eyebrows on. You can barely make out the little cheeks and lips. It looked better with the food coloring on, but I didn't get a close up of the baby once I finished her. And yes, my flowers are silk, but with feeding my baby and all, I just didn't have time to make sweet pea flowers made from fondant. The gum paste I had was just not drying and it wasn't working out for me. I wish my pink would have been slightly less shocking, but IDONTCARE! I did it! Yes, I am still reeling in disbelief
