I need help. How do I make a baby carriage out of fondant or gumpaste for a baby shower? I just got a call from someone stating that the lady, who was suppose to make this cake, husband died so she had to call and cancel so they are now calling me last minute (due on Sunday) wanting a cake. She is adimant about having a baby carriage on it. I am new to this and she knows this but it persistant on it. It will be a 10" and 8" round cake with a baby carriage ontop. PLEASE HELP!!! I can do all the other stuff but not quite sure on the carriage. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. And the colors for the cake are PRIMARY ones not Pastels like I hoped for. TIA ~Dedra~

Sorry, I don't know how to do this but I thought I'd give you a bump.

I made a cake topper like this one I just used a round cookie cutter and an exacto knife to cut out a triangle and used a smaller round cutter for the wheels.
and made an RI handle

When I saw this post originally I was also thinking of a baby carriage cake. I believe I saw one in the Wilton Course 2 book and it gives you directions on how to do it but I didn't mention it because the OP said the customer wanted a topper.

Hopefully someone can help you out with this or you could try the walmart suggestion.

Sorry, I couldn't be of more help!

i just did one of those baby carriage shaped cakes and it was super easy (the basketweave was as usual a tiny bit time consuming). it turned out great and is very forgiving when you're in a rush. good luck

I was doing a search for "baby carriage cake" and this is just a couple of things I found. They are different baby carriage favours. Maybe you could try something like that at a local store?

I did one as a chocolate transfer with sucker sticks inserted to make it a topper. Check out my pics. I think it's in there. Good luck -
