a customer (also a good friend) needs a cake for her sisters baby shower coming up. i would love to do a pregnant belly or the baby blanket but they don't want fondant...all buttercream. i respectively call them my buttercream who*%es (sorry if i offended)
so my dilemma is this...we aren't experts (not that we are in fondant either)... in buttercream...can't get it as smooth as the rest of the cc gang! and i don't really know what to do? this will be the first grandaughter in the family of a whole long line of boys...i think 8!
any ideas?? still waiting on a headcount but it shouldbe for atleast 50.
You could always do a basketweave pattern to make a baby blanket...
hello I am not an expert either but I found this wich I think is cute...if you know how to make the basket you can make something like this and then the figures out of gumpaste...I hope this helps!!!
here is another one
also I was thinkig about making a round cake and then the foot prints in one side and then a bowl on top this out of fondant...
This one is really cute and could easily be done in buttercream (without the caterpillar)
these web pages are full of ideas...I hope you find one that you like...
to add to this you can search here write baby shower buttercream and you will find a lot of ideas one of then which I like is this
This is one I did w/ fondant accents, but could be done w/ buttercream.
This is all buttercream
The plaque on the round polka dot cake is gumpaste, but the sheet cake it's a frozen buttercream transfer.
You can do buttercream easy. And if you wanted to add fondant, do it w/ accents or a bow, booties, rattle, etc That way they can keep it, eat it, pick it off, but you didn't put tons on there
you guys are so great thanks for the ideas...i just get nervous working only with buttercream!
i will let you know which one i decide...
