Homemade Baby Shower Cake

I made this baby shower cake or "sprinkle" cake for the daughter of a friend who was having her second baby. The nursery was done in pink/white/brown with touches of hot pink, and brown zebra stripes. That was part of the reason for this design.

I got lots of inspiration and information for making this cake from a website called Pink Cake Box. They make AMAZING cakes. This is my third fondant covered cake, and actually the third cake I have ever decorated. Everything I have learned has been online through the websites I have listed and just by Googlling the subject.

Both tiers of this cake are two layers. The top layer is yellow cake (I used box mixes) with homemade buttercream frosting, and the bottom tier is chocolate cake with homemade peanut butter buttercream frosting (recipes on the Wilton website).

There are dowels in the bottom tier in order to support the top tier, and there is a long dowel down the center of the whole cake to help keep it stable. The fondant is all homemade marshmallow fondant.

Hope the mother to be loves it. I will find out later today!

Amazing that the fondant is homemade....it looks flawless...great cake

Just a note....
by: Arlene W.

The coordinating onesie cookies are just a cutout vanilla sugar cookie, also decorated with rolled marshmallow fondant. A thin layer of buttercream icing is used to adhere the fondant to the cookie.

Your cake is amazing! It looks perfect and is really cleverly designed. I'm sure the mother-to-be was blow away by it, she's a lucky lady! I also adore the idea of the little individual cookies, what a marvelous touch and one I will be using myself from now on! Thanks for the inspiration.

I was wondering how you got the zebra stripes to stay put? Did you put icing on the back, or leave the fondant by its self and just press it on?

How the Zebra Stripes were attached....
by: Arlene W.

The zebra stripes and the dots were attached simply by using a small paint brush (used for food only) and dampening the back of the piece to be attached (just a LITTLE water will do). They then stick to the fondant on the cake like glue. Make sure you don't get them super wet or they will soften the fondant on the cake. The pieces on top (flowers) that had been hardened were attached with a little blob of icing.

This is a fab cake...I love it and the romper suit style cookies are fab...I've yet to make my own fondant icing with the marshmallows..I believe it tastes so much better than the commerical type...it's the sticky mess that troubles me as to how do you stop yourself from licking the fingers!!!!! Awesome cake.

Sizes?
by: JoT

Beautiful cake!
What sizes are they? I tend to make too much when the job can be done with smaller sizes.

Did you free hand the zebra stripes or is there a cutout for them?

This Homemade Baby Shower Cake was for a very large baby shower. The shower was a "Splish Splash" theme. I made a four layer, two tier round cake. Covered with fondant and then placed round cut outs on the top and sides. I just put yellow satin wire edge ribbon on the sides. Then topped with a bow and a rubber Ducky.

The other cake was a large sheet cake with smooth icing and simply topped with a large rubber Ducky.

A friend asked me to make a baby shower cake, her only re-mit was that it had to be blue and white. I used a basic Victoria sponge which I filled with lemon butter cream made with lemon curd. This gives a nice creamy texture which is ideal for spreading.

I then covered it with rolled out fondant icing. The train and teddy where made from fondant icing which I colored myself. My friend was delighted with the result.

Coolest Baby Shower Basket Cake 30

I iced this white baby shower basket cake with sky blue buttercream. Mark off the top quarter and then use a dough cutter to mark a circle for the face.

Fill in the circle with skin-colored buttercream. Then pipe features in black. Now, cover the remaining 3/4 of the cake in the basketweave design. Pipe a rope border along the edges. Now affix daisies (3-dozen made ahead of time with royal icing) to top and base of cake.

I made this Homemade Baby Shower Cake with 2 sheet cakes filled with butter cream icing and frosted. Then for the belly and boobies I used a soccer ball pan and cup cakes. I covered those with marshmallow fondant. I made the little baby out of the fondant and decorated the cake with butter cream icing.
