I used two metal bowls to bake this cake in, and turned them upside down on top of each other. And used a small casserole dish to bake the grass in. I covered the grass with Fondant, and added some detail with buttercream icing and some tips. I covered the two halves of the carriage separately, and covered up the seam with some pink flowers.
I decorated around the homemade carriage cake with flowers using tips and buttercream. I rolled up some ribbon and pinned it in to make the little spot the coach would sit on and used little bead strings to fancy it up a little. I used glittery pipe cleaners for wheels and my little pony princesses to pull it with.
I think one of the best parts of this homemade carriage cake was that I made a back drop for it, which I think was the perfect finishing touch. I just used a "science project board" from Walmart, painted the sky and some grass and the castle is a wall decal also from Walmart. I loved making this cake and it was hit!
This baby carriage cake was made using a Wilton Carriage cake pan for a baby shower (a boy). The icing is regular buttercream which I flavored with mint. I did this because the small decorations on the hood of the carriage and the wheels are baby mints (which by the way are delicious). They come in an assortment of colors, so I picked out the green and the yellow.
I used the pink and white on another carriage cake for a different baby shower (a girl). I also used the small star tip to actually decorate the cake, this of course was the most time consuming. Before I made the stars to cover the cake, I put a very thin layer of icing on the cake, making sure I could see the outline the pan left. If the layer of icing is too thick, it will be difficult to maintain an accurate representation of the cake you are making.
My old friend from college is going to have a baby boy in 2 weeks. She’s bringing a new Mets fan into the world and this Baby Carriage Shower Cake was my tribute. The cake was a real hit at her baby shower.
I used two 9x13 cake pans and placed the cakes next to each other, one vanilla and one chocolate. I placed the cake from the carriage cake mold on top in the middle of the two rectangle cakes but slightly to the right. I iced the whole thing with white butter cream icing that I made. Except the blue parts. I smoothed the blue with a small spatula and put M&Ms for the border of the carriage.
I drew the Mets symbol with a small round tip I forget what size, and the piping for the hood of the carriage, and the message. Bigger round tips for the wheels and the handle.
I made this baby carriage cake for my daughter-in-law after she brought beautiful Zoey Isabella home from the hospital. I used the Wilton baby carriage pan and their white decorator frosting which crusts up really well and then three tubes of pink Wilton frosting tubes with a star tip attached for the hood of the carriage.
I decided to go for the basketweave effect because I didn't want to pipe that many stars on the body of the carriage. I have lots of candy molds in different shapes but only one gift-shaped one so I had to melt pink candy melts and refrigerate them one at a time to get four little presents for the edge of the cake board which I covered in pink baby scrapbooking paper.
She loved all the little decorations I used and kept them to put in the baby's memory book.
