These baby shower cupcakes were made for a baby shower given for a friend of mine who was pregnant with a boy. I used a cupcake stand to display them. They were raspberry-filled white cupcakes with fondant babies and blankets on top.
I used a round cookie cutter to cut all of the blankets the same size and a Wilton shape punch to make the blankets look like quilts.
For the babies, I just made the little round heads to poke out from under the blankets. Then, I drew little faces on the baby heads with edible markers. Some were sleeping and some were awake and smiling. (I thought about making some of the babies crying, but we try to focus on the fun and exciting part of becoming a parent at events like that, right?)Then I just arranged them all on the cupcake stand and added a ribbon.
For my cousin's baby shower I made several types of cupcakes. I decorated them in various baby themes. First I made baby booties. This was very simple using tinted buttercream icing and a plain circle tip. Just put a small blob of icing for the toe area and a taller blob for the ankle area. Add a small bow and some ruffles on the top of the bootie to make it look nice. For the baby carriage cupcakes ice two thirds of the cupcake with a color of your choice. Add a ruffle around the area that would be the top of the carriage. Use white icing with a star in the center for the wheels. For the baby feet (which were my favorite) simply pipe the shape of a foot on top of the cupcake and flatten with your finger. (Dip your finger in corn starch to make sure the icing doesn't stick)
I made this Baby Shower Bear Cake for my sister-in-law. This is a full sheet cake on the bottom and star tipped to look like a quilt. I piped four butterflies on the cake and star tipped them in. The next tier is a 10" cake star tipped all the way around and made as a base for the bear cake which is made out of pound cake and star tipped.
This cake took me 7 hours to decorate because of all of the star tipping. If you make the bear, make sure that you use all pound cake because on the first try, I didn't and it fell apart. Also be sure to grease and flour the bear pan.
For my cousins baby shower I made cupcakes made to look like rattles. I just baked cupcakes in pastel colored baking cups and iced them with buttercream icing. I did a simple design on them in pastel colors. When that was finished, I took sucker sticks and pushed them into the side of the cupcakes. The last step was to add a ribbon on the rattle handle. They were a big hit at the shower!
A friend asked me to make this Baby Shower Cake Design, the only thing I had to go on was that it needed to be pink! I had a rough idea in mind, but it actually took two weeks to make all the little squares, which are made from sugar paste.
I also made individual cakes with each one topped with a pretty square. The mum to be was delighted with the results.
I made this Homemade Baby Shower Cake Design for my best friend's baby shower. It has fondant flowers and the baby sleeping on a flower is made of candy from a mold that I bought. The cake was strawberry with chocolate icing, so the cake fit the theme so pink/brown all the way through,
