Baby Block Cake

I was hostess of a baby shower for one of my good friends and I was in charge of the cake. I love making things for other people, but this baby block cake was a lot different than making birthday cakes.

I made a 12x15 cake with 2 cake mixes. It could've used 3 for it to be thicker. She was having a boy, so the colors weren't hard to decide on. I wasn't sure of the design until after I put my crumb layer icing on. After I had that done I just decided to star decorating.

Using the star tip is very tiresome on your hands, so be prepared. I had to stop and take little breaks because my fingers would cramp. I had these decorative favors leftover from the diaper cake I also made and decided it would be perfect on the real cake so it would all match.

I was very pleased with it after I was finished and so was the mom to be. Everyone said how moist and delicious it was. It fed about 35-40 people.

Coolest "Me to You" Building Block (Boy) Christening Cake 33

Homemade "Me to You" Building Block (Boy) Christening Cake

I made this "Me to You" Building Block (Boy) Christening Cake for my son’s christening. It is an 8” round fruit cake and 7 2” square fruit cakes. Each cake was covered with marzipan and then iced with fondant.

I used letter cutters for the letters and made the bear from modeling paste. The bear consisted mainly of two balls one for the body and one for the head, then 4 sausage shapes for the arms and legs. I went over the whole bear and snipped it with clean nail scissors to make it look scruffy. Then painted the eyes and patched on with a thin paint brush and black food colouring. The stand is one I already had and iced. Then the whole thing was assembled on an iced cake drum.

The main problem I had was trying to get the building blocks square they all seemed a bit pyramid shaped but luckily no one noticed.

Homemade Baby Block Cake

Homemade Baby Block Cake

I made this Baby Block Cake using one 11x15 pan and one 9" square pan. I used funfetti for the cake mix. Total of 2 1/2 cake mixes. I first iced the entire sheet cake using the star tip making rows of purple, blue and pink.

I made the blocks from the 9" pan cut into fours, iced white and used Wilton's purple can spray around the edges. I then piped each letter spelling baby on each block. I found the baby duckies at Iparty and placed them on top.

I finished it with a shell border in pink, and sprayed more purple around the sides. It was made for a surprise shower at work and she absolutely loved it! Thanks for looking hope you like it!
