I made a little block cake along with the big one.  It said Welcome Babies.  On the back side it had A B C and a baby rattle on the 2 stacked blocks.

6 x 9 cake I made for some neighbors who had a baby.  The best part was that while I was there visiting them, their 5 year old SAT on the cake!

shower cake for a friend.. lots of fun.. but dang, were those blocks hard to get all even. The cakes are iced in whipped frosting, and the decorations are buttercream. Three 6.5 inch layers and filled with Strawberry Kahlua Cream. I probably will NEVER used whipped icing again though.. could't get it stiff enough to smooth to my satisfaction. But every one loved the cakes.. and I got my FIRST PAYING order tonight too! YIPPEEE!

I used the nursery room colors for this cake. The stripes on the side of the block actually match the accent wall painted in the baby's room! The two children (made of fondant) in front are "minitures" of the mom and dad to be.

I saw something similar on here and decided to do it for a baby shower today.  This cake took about 4 days to do and fed 100-120 people.  The sheet cake on bottom is marble, the blocks are with chocolate or vanilla and it is iced with almond buttercream.  The bear is a cake and the booties are white chocolate.  The blocks either have a picture (bottle, booties, hat, onesie, bib, ball, heart, flower, or rattle) and the letter's of the babies name "Taylor".  The front blocks say Welcome Taylor.

I should have stacked one block on top of the other two (centered) Darn it!!
The cake is carrot and was so difficult to ice that I will charge $10 extra next time for this flavor cake. Sugar decorations are from

My first attempt with MMF.  I had some problems with cracking and I couldn't get all the corn starch off.  It was fun to work with something new though and I'll definately try MMF again.

I made this baby block cake for my sister-in-laws baby shower. I’m going to have a handsome little nephew soon and I’m very excited. While I was making it, I actually wished he could see the cake…I guess he’ll be able to eat some of it though!

learned a lot from this cake.  but it wasn't as difficult as I thought - just time consuming.  and heavy!  Done in all buttercream except for rattle decoration (separate photo) in fondant

This cake is one of my favorites.  The baby trinkets are actually molded candies.   I used cookie cutters to write baby on the cake.   It is a 14" with an 8" round on top.

This cake was problem after problem.  I was for my best friends baby shower, thank god it was not a paying customer or I would be so emberresed.On the day of the party  we were in a tornado warning, the humity was terrable and the fondant strips I was trying to put on were like mush. It was pulling instead of cutting, it looked offal.  I kept kneeding powdered sugar in but it did not help, oh and I had ran out of clear vanilla and so my BC was tan instead of white. Oh well she loved it that is all that matt

This was my first experience with doing baby blocks.  WAY too hard.  I think I should freeze them next time before I frost them.  All the other stuff is fondant, the quilt, bear, etc.

I used the 6 X 2 inch square pans and tiered the cakes, each block is about 6 X 4 1/2 in size and I used cookie cutters to make the impressions to make the letters and designs.....Each cake is a different is chocolate,one carrot cake,one white and one strawberry and I used Cream Cheese Icing...
Here's the icing recipe I used:
Cream Cheese Icing:
Makes about 2 1/2 cups..
1-package ( 8 ounces ) cream cheese,softened
1-tablespoon milk
1-teaspoon vanilla
4-cups powdered sugar
Beat cream cheese, milk and vanilla in large bowl on low speed, until smooth.
Gradually add in powdered sugar,1-cup at a time,until smooth and of spreading consistency.
For the Booties:
You use three large marshmallows, cut one in half and stack it on one of the other use your icing to stick the two and a half marshmallows together...using your # 16 or # 18 open star tip you begin at the bottom making in-line shells and go all around the two bottom marshmallows, working your way upwards, when you get to the half marshmallow you work your way around it in the same manner,on the top of the lower marshmallow you work your shells in a up and down motion...this gives the illusion of a crocheted look as well :o)

This is my 2nd attempt at a baby block cake.  And for the 2nd time I am swearing never to do it again!  I iced in buttercream and covered in mmf but it wasn't any easier than the first cake that was done in just buttercream.  My customer loved it but I didn't think it was all that great.

This cake was done in a pinch as a gift for a friend of a friend's baby shower. The sides say "Sugar", "Spice", "And Everything Nice", "It's A Girl".

This was a cake for a baby shower at work.  The blocks spell welcome on top and baby boy on the front side.  A 9x13 cake with cake blocks covered in fondant and royal letters.  I used BC for my first cake to write on the letter and I think the royal looks much better.

This was for my girlfriend's son's first birthday.  She wanted to be involved making it so she iced most of the block and I did the baby.  The block had an A, B, and 2 on the other sides and I used the mini bear pan for the baby.

I cut 4 inch sqares from a frozen 12 inch square cake to get these.  They were very hard to work with since they were raw cake on the sides. I'm not sure I will try these again.

I wanted to try something different so I did the half cake on another cake. It turned out ok but nothing great. The girl I made it for thought it was adorable. It was chocolate and lemon with buttercream icing. The blocks and rattle are not edible.

for my sister's baby daughter's baptism. fondant is different when made and used in super HUMID weather. i was in manila doing this. didn't know how to adjust the recipe. it had to do. felt like crying when the guests looked at and ate the cake. i have better days. why did it have to be when all our family friends would see and eat it? bear was iced in buttercream, blocks covered in fondant with white chocolate candy from bear mold.
