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.
This cake received raves at the baby shower.
