Homemade Baby Shower Cake

I made this baby shower cake for someone I gave my cake card to while I was shopping at Party City. I saw this young lady buying decorations for a her baby shower along with her mom. I said ohhh, cute zebra print, do you have a cake yet. She said no so I showed her my work. She called me right away. She wanted a pregnant girl cake.

The cake was chocolate, old family recipe I had, was super moist. I made the breast with 2 small metal mixing bowls, then belly a larger metal mixing bowl. Make sure when your cooking them to lower the temp. of the oven and cook longer because then they won't cook through if they cook too fast.

Place two smaller ones side by side then the bigger one underneath them. I made butter cream for crumb coat. I made my marshmallow fondant to cover the body. I had gum paste and made my flower ahead of time. I colored my fondant pink and cut out the stripes and glued (a little water and gum paste) them on the dress. I made the ruffle by rolling thin and cutting into strips using gum paste tool made it curl. I just gathered it and attached to the dress.

Very easy cake to make. The young lady "LOVED IT" She was very, very happy.

Coolest Baby Shower Cake 20

Homemade Baby Shower Cake

Homemade Baby Shower Cake

I made a baby block as a Baby Shower Cake. I used an 8x8 pan and stacked four cakes on top of each other with buttercream in between after leveling off the tops. I then iced it in buttercream and smoothed out all of the corners. I then covered the entire cake in fondant tinted between an off white and a beige. I smoothed out all the sides.

I colored red, blue, green, and yellow fondant for the sides. I cut out the border for each side and stuck it on the cake, after I brushed it with a little bit of water. Then I cut out the various letters and shapes for each side and stuck them on the cake. I smoothed out each border and letter. I made a bow out of gumpaste tinted light blue and before I molded it into the shape I wanted I rolled it with a rubber stamp that had hand prints on it.

When the bow was dry I placed it on top after outlining the top with the same gumpaste. I made the little curly cues by cutting thin strips of gumpaste and wrapping them around dowels until they completely hardened and placed them around the bow. I finished the cake of by adding rubber duckies stuck on with some buttercream.

Homemade Baby Shower Cake

This baby shower cake is the cake I made for my sister's baby shower. I had found an Anne Geddes Ladybug cake off of a different website and it gave me the idea for this one.

I used a full sheet cake for the bottom of the cake and then to make the baby I took a bread pan and a small bowl and divided a cake mix into the two and baked them. I let them cool and then carved it into a baby shape. The cake is decorated with buttercream icing.

The butterfly wings are made out of rice paper which I got at a local cake store, and I used edible markers to draw the designs I wanted on it and then luster dust to color in the wings. I used fondant to make the face and the hands. I just rolled flesh colored fondant over an Anne Geddes doll's face and let it dry and then I used the edible markers to draw the eyelashes and color in the mouth a little bit.

The only thing on this cake that was not edible were the antennas. They were just pipe cleaners from the craft section of a store.

I agree that this is quite a beautiful cake..., but doesn't anyone find it disturbing that the plan is to EAT it?

I don't know, I didn't have the same reaction to the more cartoon-y babys, but - this one is SO realistic...

Anyhoo -- it truly IS a beautiful piece of art! :)
