Not sure how to make the picture appear here, but I have a jungle baby shower and a care bear shower cake in my photos. Do you have a theme for these showers?

I like the duck too. What did you use around the tub?

The baby rump is a 12 inch cake on the base. The baby butt is a half ball pan, the legs were stacked cake scraps (you can use what is cut off when you level the 12 inch base.) and then the feet are rice krispy treats. I covered the butt completely in white fondant, then did the legs and feet, put it together, then added some ruffle for the diaper. The key to the feet is to keep the fondant thick on the rice krispy treats. Just drape some rolled out fondant over the baby butt.

Around the bath tub are those wafer stick cookies- I don't know the exact name- you can buy them at the dollar store, Target, Walmart, grocery store, etc.

I did a baby shower last weekend and really wanted to do a open book cake that was nursery rhyme themed, but it wasn't what they wanted. I think it would be sweet.

Yes, it was on its own board and I put four supporting posts under the four corners. It came off really clean.

Thanks! So the ladies' didn't mind you taking off the top cake? Or was your icing really pretty underneath? icon_confused.gif I'm confused.

I'd eat it any way you look at it! icon_biggrin.gif

The top surface (of the bottom cake) was just frosted smooth. Like the top of your heart shaped, red velvet cake . . . I just looked at your photos so that I could liken what I did on that cake. The people at that baby shower were mixed - men and women. None of them let out a gasp or said something like "yuck" when I removed the cake. I was quick, though, to remove that top cake and immediately remove my stabilizing posts, and then quickly smooth over the icing in the areas where the posts were removed. I'm attaching a second view of that cake that shows how I purposely cut the board slightly larger than the buggy. Then when I put the posts in the bottom, I intentionally made sure that there was about a 1/2" space for me to be able to easily grab that cake and gracefully take it off. After cutting and serving the bottom cake, I quietly put the top cake in an extra cake box that I brought for the couple to take home.

Oooooohhhhh, I get it! That's just a brilliant idea! icon_biggrin.gif It makes sense, too, to have the cake up "higher" on the top!

Wow, I never would've thought of that at all! icon_smile.gif



edit to add: That's just way cool. I took another look at the buggy cake. Wow, that's just an awesome way to do this. That's why you are an excellent decorator! icon_biggrin.gif

I am not as fabulous as some of the ladies and gents on CC but here is a picture of the first shower cake i did. It was just a simple yellow cake with buttercream icing and chocolate baby accents. Topper is non edible.
