Potter Barn inspired cake

This Friday I wrote a post about the baby shower gifts that I made for my son’s teacher. I mentioned that the gift set included a card, a scrapbook frame, a gift box and notebook, a gift bag and a cake.
I wanted to share the cake pictures with you, because this is my first cake that was inspired by a fabric. I wanted to give it more ” round” kind of shape on top, because I thought it would give it more “soft” feel, as the blanket and would make it look less like a cake and more like “fabric” object.

The cake was also very small in size ( 6″ round), the layers were vanilla and the filling was caramel cream.

You can check out the original Pottery Barn kids blanket that inspired the whole set: 

 And this is the cake I made in addition to the gift set:

It was very interesting experience making everything match the Pottery Barn Kids design and I would certainly love the idea of making something similar in the future too. Of course the actual design is really cute and that made it really fun to work with. 
Let me know what you think!
