Hey Diddle Baby Shower Tower

 Nursery Rhymes have been designed to amuse children with ridiculous images such as "the Cow jumped over the Moon." I bought a Nursery Rhyme book as an adult and realized how silly the poems actually are. As a kid, I never really thought twice about a cat playing a fiddle or a laughing dog. Anything seemed possible. What better way to bring a child into this world then showing them that anything is possible, if you make it so.

Here's a baby shower cupcake tower modeled after the 'Hey Diddle Diddle' rhyme:

Hey diddle diddle, the cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon.
The little dog laughed to see such fun
And the dish ran away with the spoon!

I made a 6" round cake topper for the cupcake stand and hand cut the characters from fondant. 

 There's the cow jumping over the moon and the dish running away with the spoon...
the only thing I'm missing is the cat and the fiddle.

The entire cupcake tower put together with 60 cupcakes.

Some cupcakes had fondant clouds, moons and stars. Others had fondant flower blossoms and decorative signs with the baby girl's initials. I used 8 of the cupcakes to spell out 'Samantha' from fondant covered with edible glitter.

Yummy cupcake baby shower tower.

Wishing you all an imaginative life!
