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!
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.
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.
