I did my first baby shower cake this week, and I was absolutely thrilled with how well it turned out! I had about three weeks to think about how I wanted to do this cake. It was for a set of twins, a boy and a girl. I really wanted to do something cute but still simple enough for me to handle. Also, I wanted to make it in mainly buttercream. I am still trying to get used to fondant cakes.
Anyways, I browsed a cake decorating forum for a bunch of ideas on what to do, and found a few really cute, simple ideas. In the end, the parents were over the moon about this cake!
It took me about two hours to create the baby blocks, which are made from Rice Krispie squares, covered in fondant. The cake itself was simple enough to make, iced in buttercream. The border and names were all fondant. Overall, this cake took me probably 5 hours from start to finish.
