I've been asked by my sister in-law to make a cake for her daughters birthday. They are currently stationed in Nevada, and her husband (my step BIL) is currently in Iraq.
She and my niece are coming home and wants to have a combined party (On July 10th). A birthday party and a baby shower while they are home. I've only been asked to make a Tinkerbell cake for the toddler, and I volunteered to make a baby shower cake. There will be 45-50 people.
I'm really struggling on what to do for the Tinkerbell cake. I've looked through the gallery and nothing jumps out at me and says "make me!" or gives me any idea for my own design. I even bought a Tinkerbell movie hoping that would inspire me, but nope! I signed up to play Disney's online Pixie Hollow game for inspiration, but nope no inspiration. But it did lock up my computer! LOL I've recently upgraded my computers memory so maybe I could give it another try.
In the gallery there are lots of cakes with tink sitting in the middle of a large flower. I kinda like that one but I am unsure how to do it. (how to make the petals stand) I want to use icing on the cake and maybe fondant accents. (I'm guessing the flower is gum paste) I really can't get into this Tink theme.
As far as the baby shower cake I volunteered for that because the baby bump belly cake looks really fun. I think it will feed like 10 people? I'll be using the Mini Wonder Mold pan, and half of the sports ball pan. Of course I'm undecided about the design of the shirt/blouse. I'm thinking the blouse should be pink and open up and show the belly showing a tiny little foot print pushing on the belly. I bought the flower texture tile (duff product) but am undecided about using it. What Wilton color should be used to make the skin tone? I have ivory, will that do?
Any ideas, and advice, would be welcomed. Thankyou
Use wiltons fleshtone gel color. Here's a cute one.
Since you like her amongst flowers.
How about one like this. The gumpaste flower petals have been molded and set to dry. Then they probably took multple petals to position it into an open flower
