I've had a request to make a maternity dress cake for a baby shower. Can someone advise what pans to use. I believe I read on a blog that the belly is Wilton soccer pan? Is that correct? What size pans/molds are used for the breasts? Thanks for the help.

I use the soccer ball and the Wilton wonder mold then I carve down the boobs and put on top of a small sheet. I put plastic dowel rods under the shirt to give a more realistic look. I don't like it when the shirt is tight under he belly.

Some use the ball shape cake pan and some use the egg shape cake pan. I would look at some of the cakes in the gallery and then you can decide on which pan you want to use. I like the egg shape pan for the belly

this looks like the egg shape pan

This is a very popular cake that I do. Go to a adult toystore and they sell blobs cake pans. That's what I did. I also use the soccor ball cake pan for the belly and put it on top of a sheet cake. Hth
