I usually just make cakes for my kids but recently have been asked by several people to make cakes for them. I was asked to have a go at this baby in pram cake for a friend. I was so pleased the way it turned out, it was the first time I'd done it!! The little girl it was for was delighted. Magic xx!
I used a pudding bowl to make the cake, sliced the crumb off and them covered in butter cream, turned it over then covered it with icing (a bit sticky and messy but I got there)!! I made the hood by rolling out sausage shapes thinning at the ends, stuck on with edible glue. The pillow was made of ready rolled icing and shaped.
I made the baby head and bear out of ready rolled colored icing and cut out a circle and shaped for the blanket. The handle is made of a pipe cleaner and as you can see the wheels are liquorice and hey presto! Sprinkled with edible glitter.
This Homemade Triplets Cake Idea was super easy! Two 10-inch cakes (one vanilla, one chocolate with raspberry filling) and buttercream frosting. To make the "peas in a pod" I colored fondant and rolled the heads into a ball. I used edible markers to make the eyes and mouth.
For the pea pod, I rolled out green fondant and cut out two leaf shapes. I pressed one end together and stuffed the opening with saran wrap and let harden for a few hours. When the shape held on its own I added the heads and placed on the cake. To make the vines I used tip #3 and went at it!
This Baby Cake was a real challenge. I used fondant and icing to get the look I needed. I needed a soft look for the baby hat and a smooth look for the baby blanket. I used food coloring to change the color of my fondant.
I made the baby parts first and painted them with food coloring and placed in the refrigerator to harden the pieces. I also used my #2 tip to give the bed a soft look.
This cake was fun to do and the completed cake is sure to catch someone's eye.
This Baby Cake is made with 12" layers. I used ivory, medium brown and pink food colors to make the marbled fondant.
The baby on top is made of polymer clay and hand painted. I placed a layer of foil between the baby and the top of the cake so no contact was made between the two. I used fondant strips embossed with a decorator press and dusted it with metallic food color. The blanket is a square of thin fondant.
We had a welcome baby party after our new baby was born and I made this Baby Cake. I bought baby cake pan on eBay several years ago for my first baby boy's shower, I wanted to make same type of cake for my new baby girl.
Made a strawberry cake and decorated with butter cream frosting and made cake in my new baby girl's image. It looked just like her even down to her sleeper, it was just precious.
I made this Baby Naming Day Cake in the shape of a P for my daughter Phoebe's naming day. It's a round cake and a loaf tin cake next to each other (cherry, cinnamon and ginger sponge, a recipe I made up), covered with marzipan and then fondant icing. Decorated with pink piped icing.
The building blocks are fondant and the teddy bear is made of marzipan.
