A Very Viking Baby Shower

I wanted to share a few photos from my baby shower with you. Hopefully they’ll generate some ideas for any showers you might be throwing or planning!

viking cake topper
Here’s a cake topper I made for the cake. This was my first time using fondant, so it’s not perfect. I used colored fondant from Wilton, which I bought at Michael’s. It wasn’t rollable fondant, I think it was called modeling fondant. I think it was better for creating a 3D figure because it was less sticky than the rollable fondant.

Overall, I was pretty happy with how it came out, although several friends described it as “terrifying.” One of my friends linked me to this horrifying thing.

I thought he looked like a cute Muppet. Hmph.

Here’s the complete cake:

Viking cake

Again, first time working with fondant. It’s a little cracked, a little wrinkly, but again, I thought it was cute. Let me explain the American/Viking theme. Our son’s room’s theme is Vikings. However, there just aren’t a lot of Viking products out there to throw a Viking baby shower. So, since the party was in August, I bought a bunch of July 4th stuff that was on sale. So the theme became American Vikings. Because I’m cheap.

play-doh babies

Here are a bunch of babies made from Play-Doh. Guests were challenged to create a baby out of Play-Doh. Prizes were given to the funniest, creepiest and most realistic. Oddly enough, I had two art teachers at this party, and neither one got the chance to make one!

pin he sperm on the egg
One of my best friends made this for me, and it’s probably my favorite baby shower game ever. Pin the sperm on the egg! I should mention the friend who made this is a surgeon, so everything on here is anatomically correct – including the googly eyes on the sperm.

So, that’s all I have for entertaining pictures. Hope you got some good ideas! Or at least learned about the terrors or fondant babies.
