Pretty Pink Baby Shower Cake

1 Comment

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a decorated cake, so I was really happy to get an order to make a baby shower cake for a couple who are having a baby girl!

Like the last baby shower cake I made, this one was also SO much fun to make. For some reason, I just love sculpting fondant into little baby toys and teddy bears. Because this cake was for a girl, I got to put a bunch of little girly details like the tiny flowers and the pink bow on the bear’s head.

The cake was a 2 layer double chocolate cake with a vanilla buttercream filling and was covered in white fondant.

For the sides of the cake, the mother requested little fondant baby feet, so I rolled out some white fondant and used a knife to cut out little pairs of feet. I then used a bit of water to attach each pair of feet to a circle of pink fondant. I made 3 of these and stuck them onto the sides of the cake. Between each pair of feet, I cut out pink and brown circles and layered them for polka dots.

My favorite part of the cake was the blanket of baby items on top of the cake. The fondant baby toys I made were very similar to the toys I made for my other baby shower cake. I made an adorable plump teddy bear, letter blocks, a pacifier, a baby bottle, a baby rattle, and a bouquet of pink flowers for the teddy bear. I thought that the green from the flowers would really pop on the cake.

For the wording on the cake, I used two different fonts. For “Sushma’s” I used my very useful funky lower case alphabet cutters and for “baby shower” I used my lovely wilton alphabet cutters. I also thought replacing the “o” in “baby shower” with a pink flower cutout would be really cute.

This cake was so much fun to make and I really hope the family loved the cake as well!
