From Macoda Cakeworks, of course!
These square cupcakes, a gluten-free chocolate fudge creation, with homemade vanilla buttercream and hand-tinted fondant, were whipped up for a second-baby shower in Highlands Ranch, Colorado.
Mom was looking for a modern-simple design with clean lines and easy colors: we paired rich chocolate browns with traditional baby-pastels, the result being "Exactly what I (the client) hoped for!"
It's amazing these ingredients....
... become these beautiful cakes.

Inverted onto cooling racks:

And later, double-frosted for good measure!
Then comes the most finicky & labor-intensive part:
Everything ends up dusted in snowy confectioner's sugar when fondant is rolled out.
And each cupcake is rolled and covered individually, ensuring fondant and cake stays moist & fresh.
Things clean up a bit as the cake is covered & fondant shaped and trimmed

And that's where baby cakes come from:
