This Baby Rattle Cake was made for a friend’s baby shower for her first girl. The colors were chosen to match her nursery. With every cake I make (no matter the occasion) I always make themed cupcakes to match. This has been one of my signature trademarks for making cakes for my friends parties.
Bake a cake in a sports ball pan. Once cooled, use icing to “glue” the two halves together to make the large part of the rattle. Frost it with whatever colors or design you desire, be creative.
This was kind of tricky. I went to our local baked goods store and found a Wilton cake pan that bakes four oval shapes. I baked two and cut them down until, when stuck together, formed a small round ball. I am sure there’s an easier way, but this was what I had to work with. I chose to frost it opposite of the large rattle part.
I used a dowel rod and wrapped it in ribbon I found to match the color scheme/pattern.
