As Mellie, in “Gone With the Wind” once famously said, “The best days are when babies come” and isn’t that the truth? This charming work certainly expresses that sentiment in style. Two round tiers are done up in shades from ivory to dark brown, in overlapping stripes. An extra stripe in bright blue contrasts and accents, and a wider ribbon encircles the base of the uppermost tier, culminating in a gentlemanly bow. A strand of matching blue beads rings and finishes off the base tier. An adorable and frisky little horse perches atop this cake, welcoming home “Baby Patrick,” and seems to be suggesting “Let’s Play!” A most delightful piece, this design has become a favorite.
