BYU vs. U of U Baby Shower

The BYU vs. UofU rivalry is a big deal in the state of Utah and just happens to be the inspiration for this baby shower for my friend Jamie. She is an avid Ute fan while her hubby is a true blue fan. It seemed fitting to have a little football rivalry celebration to welcome their new baby boy Logan into the world.

I decided it would be fun to use baby blocks as the basis for the cake, spelling out the two teams in their colors. They share the U so I did a blue shadow to a red U.

Down the outside there was BOY and on the back side was BABY.

and I had to throw in a little fondant football. Isn't it cute?!

Going down the inside was the baby's name: LOGAN (isn't that the cutest name for a boy? I love it).
At the shower my friends Casie and Melanie went all out with the football rivalry theme.
Melanie made these darling chocolate football covered strawberries. Who can pass up a chocolate covered strawberry? They were heavenly.

There was so much yummy food--game day hoagie sandwiches, veggies, fruit, chips and dips, and more--the perfect set up for the big game.

Poor Jamie had been on bed rest with Logan for several weeks, so we had the shower after his arrival. A few weeks ago we all made guesses about what day he would arrive, how much he would weigh, etc, and Casie hung up this cute poster with our guesses (and she made those cute UofU and BYU baby clothes! Super cuteness). Unfortunately I was not the best of guessers and was off by a week on his birthdate, but I couldn't resist voting for Friday the 13th.

She also did this scoreboard sign with all of baby Logan's info. Love, love, love it.

The table was covered in green to represent the football field with goal posts on either end. (When my husband sees these pictures he'll be jealous he didn't get to go to the shower).

And here is my favorite part of the cake. 2 of the blocks were red velvet with cream cheese filling while the other two were blue velvet with cream cheese filling. It seemed fitting to have both so the guests could show off their team spirit with their dessert. The recipe for the blue velvet cake can be found here.

It was a fun evening with great company, yummy food, and fun presents for Jamie and Logan. Kirsten made this amazing diaper cake trimmed in BYU and UofU material.

We are so excited that Logan made it here safely and we could celebrate with Jamie--and even though she's wearing her UofU shirt, we are still friends.

But BYU is better.


  1. You make beautiful cakes! Do you take outside orders? I would love to chat with you! I can be emailed at:

    My son is turning one on February 24th and I am looking for someone to make him a fire truck themed cake and then a little smash cake. If you are interested, I would love to talk to you!
