Homemade Baby Blocks Cake

I used 4 layers of 8x8 cakes to make each block (1 box mix of cake filled two 8x8 pans). I just trimmed off all four sides to make a nice flat edge and used buttercream icing.

I used candy melts to make the letters and characters. Just melted them in a ziploc bag in the microwave and added my food coloring. Then snipped the corner off and traced my pattern on the wax paper. Make sure to use skewers in the baby blocks cake so it doesn't fall over.

I plan on doing just this but with 3 blocks to spell out baby's name. I don't quite understand how you did the lettering without a mold...any chance you could explain more?? Thanks!!

So soft and pretty

I love it too, but I agree with the person before me, I was scratching my head about the letters without a mold....HOW DID YOU DO THAT !!

i think (as i have read on other cakes) you print out the letters (using a PC) and then lay wax paper over them, use royal icing, and copy the letter and then fill it in???? awesome cake! it's my first time to this site and I'm loving it!

Baby Block Cake

I made this Baby Block cake for my daughter's first birthday. I used 4 square cakes, layered. I did use a cake leveling tool to ensure the cakes layered nicely.

I used a mini loaf pan cut in half and then layered for the "smash" cake. I liked the look of fondant, but don't care for the taste, so to make this cake smooth, I dipped my spatula in hot water, dried it and then smoothed the cake. It's also a must to do a crumb coat.

Coolest ABC Blocks Shower Cake 31

Homemade ABC Blocks Shower Cake

I made this ABC Blocks Shower Cake for my daughter in law's baby shower. I made 3 13x9 sheet cakes, cut them into squares and stacked them into the block shapes. I placed the bottom two blocks and iced, then placed the 3rd block on top before icing it.

I used homemade buttercream frosting (my family dislikes fondant), iced them very smooth, and spelled out the baby's name. I used a tootpick to lightly trace the letters in the icing before piping them on.

This is a Baby blocks cake that I made for my Daughter, and the theme was rubber duckies. So I made baby blocks and frosted each one in pastel colors,(with buttercream icing)and wrote B A B Y on each one.

Next I added the rubber duckies and lots of icing bubbles all over the blocks and board. This cake was very easy to make and everyone loved it. "Welcome Baby Brooklyn"
