Sand Castle Cake and Newborn Photography

I know I said I'd try to keep my family off this blog since it's a CAKE blog...but I can't resist this post.  One week after Mikaela was born, my friend Elise Kersey of Elise Kersey Photography took some newborn photos at a local beach. 

We got there EARLY so we could catch the sunrise. 

Little Mikaela loved the warm weather - and it made her so sleepy!

But wait!  This blog post does relate to cakes!  I made a sand castle cake for the photo shoot.

 The whole cake was covered with light brown sugar, and I decorated it with hand-made gum paste shells and a piece of fondant driftwood into which Mikaela's name was carved.

Our sweet baby girl is now 7 weeks old.  She's chubbier and she now smiles at us, but she's still a beach bum at heart.  We have a picture of a beach hanging above her changing table and she loves to lay there smiling and coo-ing at it.  We're excited to take her to the beach for her first ocean swim one day!
