Country Baby Bath - Front View!

I was up all night making this cake...but I feel it was worth it! It was created for a western and rubber ducky themed baby shower. The men, women and children were all invited. The tables were decorated in denim with red bandana runners. In the center of the tables were mason jars, decorated with rubber ducks and filled with daisies. So, I got all the elements in the cake. It was a huge hit when I dropped it off!

PoodleDoodle Says... 8 years ago

Unbelievable!!

Price Says... 8 years ago

This is really cute! I know how much work must have gone into it. You should be very happy with the outcome. The water coming out of the pump looks great! I know it's piping gel, but how did you get it to keep its shape like that? amazing!

LisaMS Says... 8 years ago

That is SO creative and absolutely adorable! What a labor of love.

tirby Says... 8 years ago

awesome job! how did you do the pouring water coming out of the pump?

CakesUnleashed Says... 8 years ago

Thanks for all the lovely comments. You are very nice. Water pouring from spout is pulled sugar with clear piping gel on it.

cake2decorate Says... 8 years ago

Awesome cake!

CakesUnleashed Says... 8 years ago

shannan0007, the pump is actually Rice Krispie Treats shaped around a wooden dowel that was inserted into the cake board. (Not an easy task mind you!) The water going from the spout to the cake is actually pulled sugar with piping gel over it. (My friend owns a candy store and she did the pulled sugar! I, personally, have no clue as to sugar pulling! LOL)

susanscakebabies Says... 8 years ago

AMAZINGLY wonderful. I am sure it was a great hit.

Great cake! I read all the posts about how to do the water...how did you actually end up doing it?

wisdom102 Says... 8 years ago

WoW!!! This is great...You have to share the instructions on this one...PLEASE!!!

CakesUnleashed Says... 8 years ago

I put MMF on the top of the cake, distressed it a bit, colored it a shade darker than the outside slats, then let it dry. After it dried I applied clear piping gel all over it. I sure wish I hadn't attempted the bubbles though, I don't like the way they turned out in the photo. Course, when looking at the cake, first hand, they looked all right. I guess that is what matters, right?? LOL

sherik Says... 8 years ago

This is the GREATEST! How did you do the water from the pump to the tub? Sorry, I guess I should read all of the above before asking questions. I see your answer.

Soooooo, who's doing the dishes tonight? LOL

OK, first off...great job. Secondly hubby and I do not agree...is the "water" lower than the top of the slats or not? He says it is deep, I say it is the same level. Thanks for your help in settling our little dissagreement. LOL.
