I made this Baby Cake Design for my son's naming day, I absolutely love this cake, it's so sweet. Each layer of this cake is white chocolate mud cake, baked from scratch at home. I used Betty Crocker vanilla frosting over each layer, even under the homemade marshmallow fondant, to give it more taste. Everything on this cake is edible.
To start with, I made two round cakes and stacked them together to form the bottom layer. The baby 'bottom' top layer was baked in a small stainless steel bowl, which was a gamble that paid off! I iced the bottom layer with frosting and cut out fondant baby feet using a cutter to decorate the front. Now that was the easy part.
The top layer, the 'baby bottom' involves a little sculpting, I used white fondant to make the nappy, and fringed the edges to make it look lifelike. The legs are purely fondant. The feet (my favourite part) are actually formed out of rice bubble bars, I rounded them off and then moulded fondant around them and made teensy little toes! Soo cute! I finished it off with a blue piece of fondant as the blanket, which I had lightly printed a patchwork design and stars on before I spread it over the baby to make it look like the baby was shyly hiding underneath!
I made this homemade baby birthday cake design for my daughter's 2nd birthday. She LOVES baby dolls and I saw some baby cakes on this site and based this one off them.
It is made out of 2 boxed cake mixes - dark chocolate and french vanilla marbled together and covered with marshmallow fondant (very simple to make, it is just powdered sugar and melted marshmallows and tastes better to me than regular fondant).
The head is made in a 6’’ round cake pan, the body was made in a metal mixing bowl about 8’’ wide and the left over cake batter was cooked in an 8 x 8 brownie pan.
I froze the cakes for about an hour before frosting and cutting. I cut the feet and the arms out of the 8 x 8 cake. I filled and frosted the whole cake with Extra Rich Chocolate Buttercream. The legs and arms are “glued” on with frosting before putting the fondant over. I colored the fondant with some Wilton colors and some Neon food coloring gel.
Since making this cake it was suggested to me to use Kool-aid for coloring which flavors your fondant. We made the accessories out of the extra fondant. This was a HUGE hit with my daughter; she still talks about her homemade baby birthday cake design months later!
I threw a friend of mine a surprise baby shower and didn't really have a theme except baby of course, so I wanted to do something that was a little different and that was a neutral color. I wanted a 2 tier cake but couldn't figure out what to put in the middle of the tiers until I started buying items for her diaper cake.
So what I did was made a box chocolate cake in a 10 in cake pan and 6 in cake pan. I made a simple buttercream frosting and colored it. I then took the baby bottle and hot glued the bottom to an 8in cake board and placed that piece on the top of the cake, filled the baby bottle with smarties (which I made a game out of as well), and then glued the top of the bottle to the bottom of the top tier.
I then frosted the baby bottle cake the way that you see it and took lollipop sticks and stuck them into the sides of the top tier and tied ribbon to each stick.
