Homemade Baby Shower Cake

This Baby Shower Cake is a three-tiered cake and made for my daughter's friend for whom she hosted a baby shower. Since it was for a baby shower, I chose to do a fun-fetti cake with pink vanilla frosting.

For the bottom two layers, I used Wilton 10" round cake pan. For the top tier, I used the Wilton 6" round cake pan. This cake took 4 cake mixes to make and about 3 1/2 cans of frosting. There was enough left over batter to make 10 cupcakes.

I used white fondant (I used food color paste to make it pink) for the cut out baby clothes on the side of the cake. I cut each piece individually from patterns I hand made. The top tier of the cake (which the mom-to-be took home) was the 6" cake. On top of this I made a pink dress with a tulle overlay and wrapped ribbon around it and tied a bow in the back.

On the front, I glued pink glitter to make it look "fancy." The buttons on the dress were brads that are used for scrapbooking. The dress was attached to a bamboo skewer and "stuck" in the middle of the top tier. The booties under the top tier were real--an added gift for the mom-to-be. I did use dowel rods to keep the bottom two layers steady--it was a really heavy cake. The curled ribbons under the dress were the kind you buy ready-made and I just cut off the tages and placed them under the dress, around the bamboo skewer. I used the candy sprinkles that come with the frosting to outline the bottom edges of the cakes.

This was my first attempt at a tiered cake and everyone at the shower loved it. It tasted good and it was pretty too!
