Do you sell this cake? No, just for fun

Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: A teaching colleague was retiring to look after her baby grandson, hence the theme on top of the cake. I made two basic Chocolate Victoria sandwich mixtures in 10 in tins ( 3 eggs & 6 oz of each dry ingredient) then filled with chocolate butter icing. I then covered with apricot glaze and iced with ready made fondant icing.

What are you most proud of? I was very pleased how the little baby bottles came out,

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you're doing this on a hot day, keep your fondant icing in the fridge.
