My daughter who was turning two loves babies and bath time so I combined the two themes for a Double Bubble Homemade Baby in a Bath Cake. I made two rectangular cakes from a package and stacked them on top of each other and made sure it was long enough to fit a 9X13 blue casserole dish inside.
With the extra middle pieces we filled in the gaps and covered it with cream cheese icing to look like a bathtub. The faucet handles are made and shaped from fondant. I stuck them in with toothpicks. I then mixed blue jello according to directions and whipped it with a milk frother.
While it was setting I frothed it a little more until the bubbles looked like bath bubbles and put bath toys in to set. I bought an all plastic baby from Walmart and stuck her in before the jello set.
It turned out really good and my daughter loved it.
I always like an opportunity to bake a cake, and to celebrate Pauline’s 50th birthday I decided to try something different. She likes Drambuie and relaxing in the bath, so I thought that would be a good starting point for this cake.
I started this Bubble Bath Cake with putting Pauline in the bath – then worked to add the detail. A red towel, slippers, radio and ducks add some finishing touches, and of course the giant Drambuie bottle with bubbles escaping to keep in theme with the bubble bath.
Hopefully the “real” Pauline also managed to pamper herself for her 50th birthday celebration. I'm sure a tipple or two of Drambuie was also enjoyed!
I made this cake for my cousin's shower. They wanted it to be a wedding cake since they didn't have a cake when they married. It's just a small three tiered white cake with white buttercream icing. I used the #5 tip to make the dots and the #16 for the border. The topper was off white silk roses. This is the second tiered cake I have made and it was somewhat easier than the first one. I guess you learn as you go.
This Hot Tub Cake was for a friend who graduated with her master's. They recently purchased a hot tub and thought that should be my theme. The cake was 2 layers with the top having an area hollowed out. It was covered in fondant that I marbled to match the color of their hot tub. Fondant character with buttercream 'water' and kit-kats around the edge. My handwriting is terrible but it says 'Time to Relax!'
