Diaper Bag & Toy Chest

by monica
(lansdale,Pa)


I made this cake for a baby shower, I decided to have many eye catching elements to this display. So I also made 3d animals and baby sneakers, basketball and toy chest.

To make this cake you will need, a sheet cake cut in thirds,iced and stacked and cover with marshmallow fondant. I went over the edging of the fondant with a stitching wheel,(found at any sewing store, or walmart). I used a chocolate bottle mold with gumpaste for the bottle, let it dry slightly and the cut it on a 45degree angle so it would rest better on the cake. The diapers are fondant folded the way you would a real diaper and set ontop on the cake. Once the bottle and diapers are set on top of the cake then just add the contrast color around the top of the cake.

To make the animals you will need one batch of gumpaste, I formed all animals by hand, baby giraffe, sheep and duckie. The basketball was styrofoam covered in gumpaste, the baby sneakers were a pattern i got online from www.sugarteachersblog.com, and i just added my own touches. The blanket and washcloth were made from fondant and i pressed a dishcloth into the fondant to make it have that textured look. I made the toy chest of cake iced and covered in fondant, decorated and i placed the sheep on top, this was for the mother-to-be to take home for herself. I made side pockets from fondant and a bottle made of rice krispie treats covered in fondant to look like the baby lotion.

good luck & happy caking

Monica

Baby "Bum"

by Andrea Stoneberg
(Nampa, ID)





I am new to making cakes. This is actually only my second fondant cake I have ever done. I wanted to make a cake that looked realistic and surprise my friend for her baby shower. The bottom cake is made from a 10" round pan. I made two cakes, each with almost 2 cake batters, totalling 4 cakes. I secured them together with buttercream frosting, then covered the outside in frosting as well before applying the fondant and smoothing it down. I then applied the poka dots with a little bit of water as well as the "Oh Boy" that I had used cookie cutters to cut out. For the bow I used gum paste and allowed it to dry over night. The baby "bum" was made from a small round pan that I over filled so it would bubble up and create a round look. After it cooled I carved the bum to be as round as I wanted it. The feet and the legs were made 3 days prior to me assembling the cake so that they would dry a little first. They were made from fondant. To make the feet appear more realistic I added a little pink dust to the bottoms. I placed wood dowels in the cake before placing the baby "bum" on it so that it would be secured. I also used wood dowels to assemble the feet to the legs. Finally I mixed green and blue fondant together to create the blanket and secured it in place with the frilly look with water. :)

Bear Pin Cupcakes

These were baby shower cupcakes completely iced on the top and the sides. I had to freeze them in order to make them sturdy enough to handle. I piped them in light yellow matching their shower invitation, and piped a little bear's head diaper pin on top. Each cupcake was placed on a flattened cupcake paper.

1st Hawaiian Birthday Cake

This cake I did for a first birthday of a little boy. The family was having a Hawaiian theme, so I incorporated that into the cake design - I used brown sugar to make little sand islands on the sides of the cake, and then added icing palm trees, waves and flowers. The inscription turned out nice with a little help from my computer!

Pea in a Pod Cake

This cake was made with size 10, 8 and 6 inch pans. I first frosted with buttercream then covered each cake in fondant. The little pea and pod are made from fondant. The bow is also fondant. If you make this cake, make your pea pod and baby pea at least 24 hours in advance to give them time to dry. Fun cake to make and everyone loved it.
