Coolest Nursery Rhyme Baby Bottle Cake

I came up with this idea for a baby bottle cake because I had seen other baby bottle cakes that were just kinda plain. For this cake I stacked three 6 in round cakes together then topped it with a 6 in half ball pan so I would have very little carving to do. I made the rattle, cap and the nipple out of gum paste and let them dry for two days.

I downloaded images from the Internet and copied them on edible image frosting sheets and cut them out.  Then I used edible markers to brighten up the colors in the images and outlined then in black. The bottle cake is covered with fondant which actually took a couple of tries before I got it right. I then airbrushed the bottom green and the top blue to resemble the grass and the night sky.

This cake was so much fun to make. My family didn’t think I would pull it off but I did (haha).  The letters and stars are made out of fondant.
