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.
TIA

You could always do a basketweave pattern to make a baby blanket...

How about one like this? Diamond impression mats cover a multitude of sins and the baby is super easy from a mold.

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
