Baby Shower Cakes

I made these baby shower cakes for my daughter's baby shower. They were a great hit, although most did not want to eat them, after some coaching they were gone. I got the idea on the internet and dug in.
I made a dozen vanilla and a dozen chocolate cupcakes. I frosted the cupcakes with white buttercream frosting. I purchased white fondant icing and colored it with ivory coloring to make my little heads and bodies.I purchased the pastel color fondant icing for my blankets.
I rolled the heads in a ball and used edible writing pen to make eyes,nose and mouth and did put some hair on some. The bodies I made in a bullet shape.
I made the pillows out of white fondant icing and rolled out into a square. I rolled out the pastel colors and then used a pizza cutter to shape the blankets.
Your baby shower cakes look fantastic. I have seen pictures of these online and in books but never attempted to make them myself.
Thanks so much for sending in the photo and the very detailed instructions on how you made them.
