Baby Boy Shower

I was asked to make the cake for my best friends baby shower. And since she always does my hair for free- she got her cake for free.
The shower colors were green and brown, and her theme was mama bear/baby bear

The cake:

A mama bear and baby bear (sculpted out of fondant) walking together.

I used chocolate buttercream for the paw prints, I used round tips of varying sizes, and then I dipped my finger in cornstarch and then gently tapped the paw prints to flatten them down.
Here are some cake balls:

Using the colors of green and brown.
After making the cake I had some extra batter, so I made 12 cupcakes.
I covered them with buttercream icing and then used chocolate icing to add bear paw prints. (I used the cornstarch again here)
The whole she-bang:
