Hi amazing cake central bakers, I need your help again.
I have a friend of mine she need me to make her baby shower cake.
I asked her to send me the picture and I will let her know if I can d it.
I looked at the picture and I think I can do everything except the blanket, I was wondering what tip they used to achieve the real blanket look and how did they do it ?

I have seen a cake similar to this and it was really not difficult. The blanket was actually a sheet of plastic wrap and the woman did the basket weave with the bc right on the plastic wrap and then draped it over the cake and then finished the blanket off with the border. Hope I explained that clearly enough for you, if I can answer any other questions you can pm me and I will try to help.

I have made similar blankets with SugarVeil and an image as well as with 50/50 and an image. Both concepts are very easy. For SugarVeil I just made a sheet, put an image of a pattern on it that I liked and draped it on the cake. What I liked about the SugarVeil is that it was very light weight and gave me a lot of time to mess with it. The 50/50 was heavier, but the I was able to ruffle the edges.
Good luck

I don't know what tip was used to do that blanket (it is adorable though!).. I did one using the plastic wrap method, and it is here..

I think it is a real blanket. Not sure. It sure is pretty, whatever it is.

Wow - that blanket is amazing! I would love to figure out how to do that too. It seems like basket weaving all those tiny stitches would take forever! I wonder if there's a faster way?

The ribbon on the blanket (and pacifier and shoe) looks like real ribbon.. not sure about the actual blanket though..

Thanks ladies, I really appreciate your help.
I agree with Harley Dee about the fake pacifier and ribbon but I am pretty sure the blanket is edible.
I think they use the basketweave technique but what tip??
