I am making the cake for a adoption shower in 3 weeks. The theme is " Cute as a button" I can't think of any cakes to make for this shower. HELP please.
It would be really easy to make some buttons out of fondant...just cut circles and then make some holes in the center. Do different sizes and colors and put them around the cake.
Check out the new Martha Stewart wedding cake book and The Whimsical Bakery cake book. I believe that they both have cakes decorated with a button theme. It may give you an idea. Also I have seen button fondant mold but I am not sure where. Good luck
Here are some pictures:
There are a lot more button cakes in the galleries here at CC. Just search the word button.
when you cut your buttons out of fondant lay a piece of saran wrap over the fondant first and push your circle cutter down over that, it will give a nice rounded edge. plus another benefit is if you use your tip ends to cut buttons the fondant wont get stuck inside the tip.
How funny we are doing a Cute as a Button cake this Friday as well!
I made some booties and we are putting them in the middle of a round cake, ribbon around the base, and clusters of buttons around the booties.
