I am going to share the Baby Shower cake I made for the baby shower I hosted for my Daughter-In-Law.
I have already shared the Invitations, nappy cake, & the arrival of my Grandson Riley, please scroll down to see the posts x
Now... this is going to be photo heavy! I have had to show you all angles of the cake.
This is my 2nd bash at making a two tiered cake, my 1st was for my Grandson Eddy's 1st birthday. There is a post on my blog showing this too.
I must say I was very pleased with how it turned out & it tasted good too.
I have kept in the theme of the baby shower invitations.
Washing line, dots, gems.
The ribbon round the cake is what I purchased in a pack of 5. I do believe it's by Docrafts.
The Organza ribbon is from Meiflower.
The cut out baby set - Pram, Vest, Rocking Horse & Bottle I ordered off of Ebay.
I used pre-coloured ready rolled icing.
The Shapes on the corners of the cake are from a silicon mould that I purchased off of Ebay.
As you know with these silicon moulds, you can use them for, Ice, chocolate, fondant, fimo clay.
I did make up Ice cubes for the baby shower too.
I used ready to roll fondant on the whole of this cake.
I got the different sized circles using the bottom of piping nozzles.
The gems are from Meiflower.
Close up of the washing line and top of cake. I used wooden kebab skewers to wind the ribbon round. Attached a gem on each end, then slotted into cake.
Pegs & dummy purchased off Ebay.
Baby on top of cake was made using a mould too. You would never think this would have come from the mould. Just love it. Added ivory food colouring to white fondant to get the colour I wanted.
I also made some blue berry muffins for the day. Made my own cup cake toppers, again to go with the theme.
I do hope you have enjoyed having a browse.
I am not an expert at making cakes, as you can see by the wonky/un-smooth top tier, lol. I need to practise!
The cake was a Madeira cake, filled with butter cream & jam.
My next post I will share the recipe to make the Blueberry Muffins.
Please do leave a comment, I will pop on over & visit you too.
