This is the first cake I’ve made for twins. At the time the order was placed, the gender of the other baby was unknown, so Teresa requested one purple and one green shoe. The girls ended up coming earlier than expected so the cake went straight to the hospital instead of the shower.
Made for a baby shower. Mom wanted bears, baby blocks, cowboy boots and camoflauge worked into the cake. Momma bear is covering her eyes because her cubs are out of control.
I was very honoured to be asked to make a cake for one of the wonderful teachers at our small school, who is going on maternity leave to have her 2nd baby this week. I was given free reign as long as it fed 100 people. This is what I came up with. 11inch Vanilla cake with strawberry buttercream base and the blocks are vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream. The animals are all edible, made from fondant with tylose
Client sent me a picture of a similar design and wanted me to duplicate it using these colors. Mommy to be is decorating the nursery with monkey’s so was asked incorporated one into the design. Blocks are iced in BC and decorated with fondant. TFL!!
I finally got to make some sugar paste baby shoes!! I found a template online luckily! The top was airbrushed gold, but I think I added too much white to my mixture because it has a matte look to it.. I wanted it to be shinier. lol. First attempt with baby blocks, I think a few are lopsided! lol
this was my first sharp-edged cake, and I think it didn’t turn out bad. Tutorial for the baby blocks (inspired by Michelle)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KPcdUoZibgA
Vanilla cake, vanilla buttercream. Decorated in fondant and gumpaste. Bow is Modeling Chocolate
First time using cream cheese frosting… Man I have seriously been missing out! It’s the best!
An 8″ strawberries and cream cake with white chocolate SMBC. All fondant/gumpaste decorations.
A young student of mine (no, I’m not a cake decorating instructor! LOL) asked me to help her with a baby shower need. I provided the cake. It was fun! I wish I had had more time to work on the building blocks, but otherwise, I enjoyed the outcome. The cake was two 12×18 cakes, with buttercream under fondant. The bear, basketball, and football were all rice cereal treats covered in fondant; everything else was fondant or sugarpaste. I created the wood texture by rolling grooves in the toybox, and painting the toybox with a mix of vanilla and brown gel color “stain.”
Gumpaste baby blocks on fondant covered cake.
Teddy bear baby shower cake done with buttercream icing. The teddy bear was done with the teddy bear pan and piped stars. The plastic blocks were the only thing not edible.
This is the cake I made for my sister-in-law’s baby shower. It was chocolate with chocolate chips…YUMMM! Didn’t have a mold or anything for the blocks so I made them by hand and used a Gem cutter for the booties. Was very simple and, IMO, classy. Was very happy with how it turned out. TFL!
