Homemade Onsie Baby Shower Cake

Homemade Onsie Baby Shower Cake

This Onsie Baby Shower cake was made for a teacher's baby shower. We knew that she was having a boy so that is why we chose blue.

Items that will be needed:

2 boxes of cake mix
4 canisters of icing
1 can of spray blue
1 can of spray icing blue with tips
1 2.5 pound fondant - white
1 roll of blue fondant
scrapbooking pieces of your choice for on and around the cake

I baked the two cake mixes together in a large cake pan, roughly 12" x 10". I baked it according to the directions on the box but the toothpick test can also be done. I let the cake cool while I rolled out the fondant. Once the cake was cooled, I cut the cake to the desired shape of the onsie and covered the cake with approximately four cans of icing. This will give you a thick coating under the fondant. I then spread the fondant over the icing, moistening my fingers with water to smooth down the edges, and gently pressed the edges to the sides.

Once the fondant was evenly spread, I sprayed the airbrush-type spray all over the cake, making sure to get the sides too. I then used the star tip to go around the edges of the cake to emphasize it. I then used the blue fondant to make strips which I placed on the onsie for the sleeves, leg holes and buttons or snaps.

We then placed scrapbooking pieces on the onsie for decoration. We cut out a sign on the computer that said "Dominic Made in the USA" and used this as the tag on the onsie. We also cut out a Congratulations sign using our Cricket machine. Everyone loved this cake!

Coolest Onesie Baby Shower Cake 17

Homemade Onesie Baby Shower Cake

Homemade Onesie Baby Shower Cake

This Onesie Baby Shower Cake is a strawberry and banana cake. I made it for a friend's baby shower. For the design of the cake I used the onesie I had bought for the baby.

To make the Onesie cake I used two white boxed cake mixes. I added in yellow food coloring and banana extract while mixing them. When they cooled I cut the outline of the cake using a onesie to refer to. Then cut in half to fill it.

I started with a flat tip and went around the outside with icing so the filling would not leak out. Then filled them with a strawberry filling that you would use for strawberry shortcakes. I then placed them together and started to decorate the cake.

I used homemade butter cream icing and made the colors I needed by adding food coloring to it. Colors needed are yellow, purple, hot pink, and green. I started with a writing tip to add the flowers, leafs, and buttons. Then using tip #16 star tipped the outline in hot pink then moved onto the yellow. To decorate the board I got some frosted animal cookies and placed them all around the cake.

Coolest Baby Clothesline Cake 43

Homemade Baby Clothesline Cake

Homemade Baby Clothesline Cake

I made this two tier round Baby Clothesline Cake using a 10'' round pan for the bottom tier and 6'' round pan for the top tier, the cakes were butter cake with Bavarian cream filling, covered in white fondant. The buttons for the borders were made a couples of days in advance and then positioned on the cake on top of a buttercream bead border (round tip #5 Wilton), the clothes and clothesline were made out fondant and then glued (with water) on the cake, all the details on the clothes were made after they were on the cake.

The pacifier was made out of candy: I took two half round molds and filled them with melted candy, once both side were dried, I melted the flat part a little bit (stove ceramic burner) and glue them together, the handle was made with round cookie cutters; position the cookie cutter on top of parchment paper and then pour the candy, let it dry, for the part with the hole in it, just use two cookie cutters of difference sizes and put one inside of the other and fill the outside part of it.

How did you make the clothes?
by: Edithy

Hello,
Great job on the cake! Very clean, neat, and simple. I am new to fondant and really want to learn how to use it, but i was wondering how you cut out the shapes of the baby clothes. did you use a cookie cutter or was it free hand?

Thank you!

Too cute!

Your cake is just too cute. It certainly demonstrates your skill as a decorator/cake baker.
I'll bet it is delicious.
