I started this quilted bow cake by making two white roses out of flower paste. These were left to harden over night. I also made a bow out of icing which needed to harden overnight.

I then baked 3 x 8” sandwich cakes and these were left to go cold. I then filled it with butter cream and jam, and then covered the whole cake in butter cream and placed in the freezer to chill for 10 min. Meanwhile I covered some roll out fondant in pink, ready to cover the cake. I covered the cake in the pink fondant and with some paper I measured it around the cake so it fitted exactly and then kept folding the paper until the spaces in the folds were wide enough.

I then taped the paper around the cake and with a tooth pick I started making slight markers on the cake on the top edge and on the bottom edge so I could join the markers diagonally missing one marker each time so the pattern came out a diamond shapes. I then pushed a small hole around the top edges of the diamonds and attached small edible pink balls using a little water to make them stick. I then did the same around the middle part of the diamonds but using a white ball.

Then with white fondant I made enough small balls rolled out of the icing to attach to the base of the cake. I then attached the bow with some royal icing, and finally attached the roses to finish off the cake.

Coolest Baby Shower Quilt Cake 33

Homemade Baby Shower Quilt Cake

Homemade Baby Shower Quilt Cake

I made this baby shower quilt cake for a co-worker/friend's baby shower. The idea came from one of the older Wilton Yearbooks. I used a 12 x 16 Wilton cake pan and two(should have used 3)cake mixes. Using just two mixes caused it to be a little under the 2" I wanted it to be.

I used tip 18 to fill in each 'quilt square'. It's best to have enough tips so you don't have to keep changing out for each color. The hardest part of this cake for me was the fringe around the edges. Although it was easy to do, it's very hard on the hands. You're supposed to use candy molds and make rattles, bottles, etc and put that in the squares but since I'm not a candy maker, I did not do that.

This is a very fun cake to make and I'm looking forward to doing a different 'baby cake'.

Coolest Quilt and Bed Birthday Cake Design 4

Homemade Quilt and Bed Birthday Cake Design

My Mama loves to make homemade quilts. She had a birthday coming up, her 86th birthday. I thought making her a Quilt and Bed Birthday Cake Design would be a fun project for me and a huge surprise for her.

The cake is just a yellow sponge cake covered in cream cheese and buttercream frosting colored with blue food coloring to match the border of the cake. The quilt is made from 5 different colors of vanilla fondant which I cut with a 5/8" square cookie cutter and then placed on a plain white sheet of vanilla fondant.

The pillows are made from crumbled cake mixed with buttercream frosting and covered with pink vanilla fondant for the pillow cases. The headboard and footboard are made from gingerbread.

The Quilt Cake was a huge success and Mama loved it! It was one of the best surprises I have ever made for her.

Homemade Baby Blanket Cake

Homemade Baby Blanket Cake

This Baby Blanket cake was made for a friend's baby shower.

The bear was made with the Wilton teddy bear cake mold. The blanket was icing, piped on a piece of plastic wrap in a basket weave pattern. The border was piped around it, once the blanket was in place. The blocks had candy inside and the clothes pins were plastic.

Baby Quilt Cake

This baby quilt cake was easy and fun to make! Used 2 batches of buttercream icing. First batch to frost the cake since I don't like the taste of fondant and would not do a whole cake in fondant.

Second batch divided and colored. The baby blocks and flowers in the center are made of Fondant.
