Homemade Baby Footprints Baby Shower Cake

I got my idea of a Baby Footprints Baby Shower Cake from a lady who wanted me to make a cake shaped like a baby footprint. I decided to make two feet. I haven't seen anyone make one so I was anxious to make it.

First I purchased 3 boxes of cakes and baked according to baking guides. I poured batter into a 13x9 rectangular pan (half sheet pan). While the cake was baking I drew a picture of a baby footprint and cut it out. When the cake was finished baking I let cool and cut the cake into two halves. I cut the halves so I could put buttercream icing in between each layers. Put the layers back on top of each half.

I lightly frosted the top of the halves. I only frosted the top since I had to cut it out into feet. Let the cake chill so it would be easy to work with. Put the template I made on top of cake and cut it out. I turned the template over and did the same as the first one. I colored some buttercream blue, frost and let chilled again. After chilled I put little designs.

This is my finish product.

Coolest Baby Cake 39

Homemade Baby Cake

First proper cake I've ever made - was so chuffed! I've seen enough "Ace of Cakes" to convince myself I was a cake maker!

This homemade baby cake is made of a 3 tier sponge with regal ice covering and sugarpaste / regal ice decorations. The baby is a separate sponge carved baby layer on board, iced separately and then covered with leaves to hide the join. Took 14 hours (2 days) to make.

Sponge split with buttercream & lemon curd. The white regal ice layer was FAR from perfect. First cake I've ever made so everything was a bit wonky but I covered all the mistakes up best I could. Hope you like it. I'm well pleased.

It was for my friend Sarah's baby shower, her baby is going to be called Molly, that's why I put a little sugar 'M' on the baby's dress! How cute! Tasted good too!

I created this homemade baby cake myself because I thought babies come from the patch at the end of the garden (don't they?)!

Coolest Baby's Christening Cake 54

Rather than sticking to the traditional pink for a baby girl or blue for a baby boy cake, I decided to combine all the baby typical colours together to create this Homemade Baby's Christening Cake.

I bought my teddy bear cutters very recently and just couldn't wait to use them, and when asked to design a Christening cake I just knew these teddy bears would look great on the cake!

The bears were made from fondant icing which I coloured brown, and the bows on bears were hand piped. Using food colour pens, I carefully marked out the teddy bears eyes and nose.

The babys' bib was made by using a circular cookie cutter and just cutting out an oval shape at the top and reshaped it to look like a bib. I then hand piped the edges and the baby's name with royal icing (1 egg white and confectionery sugar & colour) in pink for contrast.

For the finishing touches, I made a large yellow fondant bow which cascades down the sides of this 2 tiered cake.
