• BABY BELLY CAKE…

Cake  – 10.10.09

Bethany contacted me awhile back about a pregnant belly baby shower cake.  I had done this particular cake design in the past so it was still pretty fresh on my mind.  The cake was to feed 20 and go with a blue/purple scheme for a baby boy.

I began by baking a soccer ball pans and two small ball pans.  Before I pushed the two small ball cakes together, I cut a straight line down the side of each one so they would press up against each other.  I cut into them again so they would follow the roundness of the belly and sit it place.

After all was cut, I covered the cakes in a thick layer of buttercream and covered with fondant. I left  quite a bit of fondant on the bottom to drape as the dress.  I colored and cut a triangle piece of flesh tone fondant and attached it to the top of the body for cleavage.  I cut strip of white fondant for the trim on the dress followed by the blue for the top ribbon trim and bow.  I used buttercream to pipe the lace on the bottom of the dress. To finish up the cake, I rolled out blue and purple fondant and cut out small flowers.  After placing them around the cake, I piped in the white dots in the center of each flower with buttercream.. After 4 hours, it was complete.

Congrats to the momma-to-be. Thanks, Bethany, for allowing me to create this cake for you guys.  Hope you enjoy.

    Your cakes are awesome! I make wedding/birthday cakes also. I have a question about attaching satin ribbons to butter cream icing. I see you have been successful with it over and over again. Could you please e-mail me to the above address? I’m looking for tips on attaching ribbons to butter cream icing.
