Homemade Baby On Clouds Birthday Cake

I did this Baby On Clouds Birthday Cake for my niece's 1st birthday. She was born with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome and has been on oxygen her whole life (hence the oxygen tube in the nose).

The baby is a doctored white cake mix, I added an extra egg and a 4 serving box of pudding to give it a heavier texture (all tiers are doctored). It is iced with buttercream. The second tier is a single layer double chocolate cake, and the bottom tier is single layer french vanilla. The star are made out of a 50/50 mix of fondant and gumpaste. The tiara and wings were store bought. For the cupcakes I used just a hint of blue color mist.

The bottom tier is 12", and the second tier is 8". Both are 2" deep. The baby was made from the Wilton Cuddly Teddy Bear pan. I used a Wilton design called "Crawling on a cloud" as the inspiration and just adjusted it to my needs.

This Angel baby cake and all of it's decorations were edible. I made everything with the exception of the chocolate duck which was purchased. The baby was very life like (the size of a baby doll), in fact most people thought it was a doll placed on the cake.

To make this, I created my own mold from food safe silicone putty using one of my daughter's toys. I then filled the mold with white chocolate and layered it in tan fondant. I created the knitted quilt and cap from dyed fondant also. The bottle was made from Isomalt and painted with edible paint and candy. The wings were fondant with edible gold dust.

The clouds were made with butter cream icing and the cake was airbrushed to look like a sky. The cake itself was half vanilla and half chocolate cake. The entire cake was also done in butter cream.

Coolest Baby Rump Cake 60

Homemade Baby Rump Cake

Homemade Baby Rump Cake

This baby rump cake was made for a friend’s baby shower. The cake is a strawberry cream cake with strawberry cream cheese filling and cream cheese frosting and then covered in fondant. I used one half of the Wilton 3d ball cake to make the “rump” and covered it in white fondant for the diaper and put the baby’s monogram on it.

The baby booties and the teddy bear are made of modeling chocolate (this is the 1st time I’ve ever made/worked with modeling chocolate. It was so easy! I will definitely do it again!). The legs and feet of the baby are made from Rice Krispy Treats and then covered in fondant. I used my fondant tools to make the creases in the feet to make them more realistic.

I had a blast making this cake, and everyone loved it!

Coolest Baby Face Cake 23

Homemade Baby Face Cake

Homemade Baby Face Cake

I made this baby face cake for a baby shower at the office from an idea I'd seen online. The decorations were so simple. The cake was from a box mix and I made it in two 9 inch round pans which I stacked on top of each other.

For the frosting I made a powdered sugar icing and tinted it peach with food coloring, following the instructions on the food coloring box to achieve the right color. For the piping I tinted the frosting brown. I used brown Necco wafers for the cheeks and eyes, and finished it off with a pacifier in the mouth.

Homemade Baby Rump Cake

Homemade Baby Rump Cake

This Baby Rump Cake was a really simple cake to make and would fit easily on top of a sheet cake for a baby shower. I made this cake with half of a small ball pan. The legs were scraps from the cake and the feet were made out of rice krispie treats.

I covered the feet and legs in peach colored fondant and the "rump" was fully covered in white fondant and then the overlay is a blanket.
