I have a request for a pink & brown baby shower cake. The request is NO FONDANT, but they want a cake similar to one I have done with fondant circles and stripes. They are going to send a pic of the bedding, but before that I would like to have some ideas in my head that I could present to the customer. Any suggestions?? Thanks in advance!

I hate being limited to buttercream too! In your photos, you have one titled Birthday Princess Cake (or similar to that...). Could you do the dots like that and then do the stripes using the flat edge of the basketweave tip?

I have a couple. Let me gather and come back.

Here's a link to my baby shower pics. There are a few in there with that color combo. 99% of my cakes are buttercream. HTH.

Thanks! I love the pink, green & brown one. I'll have to remember that design! You do great work...keep it up!

what if you freeze the cake after icing it and then go back with a circle stencil (cut out of a plasic lid or something) and do the polka dots spread thin with a offset spatula?
