Baby Shower Cake, Cupcakes, and Cookies!

I got the chance to make a cake for my first "real" occassion - my friend Mara's baby shower! But I couldn't just stop at a cake. I ended up making the cake, 3 kinds of cupcakes and some sugar cookies. I'm really happy with the way everything turned out, and I'm looking forward to making more cakes! Here is the total setup! (I made the cake stand also).

And here is a close-up of the cake:

Cupcakes! I made 3 kinds: vanilla with lemon curd filling and lemon cream cheese frosting (yellow), apple crisp with whipped cream frosting (blue) and strawberry with strawberry cream cheese frosting (pink). They all tasted awesome!

And the whole thing was surrounded by my army of fuzzy baby chicken cookies!

I can't get over these Vicki. They're so unbelievably awesome. I felt the need to leave another comment telling you how amazingly talented you are because I keep coming back to the pictures.

What tip did you use on your cupcakes? They look so pretty. You should post the recipes you used for the cakes.
