Baby Shower projects

So today I did the cake for the baby shower tomorrow for the two ladies at church. I have been wanting to do this baby bassinet cake that I saw when I was taking the cake decorating courses. It requires the basket weave technique and is so totally cute. Well I went to make the cake this morning and discovered I don't have the right size cake pan. I have all the other sizes, but not the one I needed. So I had to improvise. Here is what I came up with. I am mostly pleased with how it turned out.

I also got to make the gifts for the mommy's to be. I found some frames at the store that allow you to put two 4x6 photos in it. I used some gingham print printed paper that I have had for a while. Printed the saying on my computer, colored it in using the Soft Subtles markers, mounted it on coordinating cardstock and then added some flowers and a brad to each one. I figure the ladies can put a picture of their little one on the bottom part of the frame, or they can put the baby's hand prints or foot prints. I hope they like them. I don't really know either of them that well so I didn't want to go all out, but I didn't want to show up empty handed. I hope they like them.
