Baby Bump Cake

Tana contacted us a few weeks ago regarding a baby shower cake. She wanted a marble flavored Pregnant Belly cake to feed 25 with the figure wearing a baby blue dress and zebra stripe accents to celebrate the little boy on the way.

We baked one soccer ball pan to form the belly and two small ball pans to form the well-endowed momma-to-be breasts. We covered with buttercream and then a layer of baby blue fondant to form the dress. We colored a small triangle piece of fondant tan and placed it on top to form the cleavage. Baby blue strips of fondant were cut and placed as the trim of the dress. Next, we used white fondant and created the bow, ribbons and trim around the top of the dress. We painted zebra stripes on the bow and ribbons. After four hours total, the cake was complete.

Sweet Taste of Music

Our close friend, Jason, wanted to surprise his wife with an electric guitar and amp cake.   He wanted both to be chocolate, guitar to have fondant and amp to be buttercream.

We baked an 8″ square for the amp.  We cut out a square for the speaker to be inset into the cake.  We then covered the cake with a yellowish brown buttercream.  We rolled a thin piece of black fondant and pressed a grid pattern into it to resemble a speaker and set it in place.  We created the handle on top with fondant.  We used a small strip of fondant for the logo on the front and piped Fender with buttercream.

We baked a 12″ square cake and cut the shape of the guitar.  We cut away a small section for the neck to sit flush with the guitar.  The neck was created from styrofoam (my husband has amazing skills!), wrapped in fondant and painted black.  We covered the body in buttercream, fondant and painted black as well. We created the knobs, strap holders, pickups  and tuning knobs with fondant painted with silver luster dust.  We piped on the frets, strings and logo.

After 8 hours, both bakes were complete.

We opened up our home for the surprise party and had a rockin’ good time!

Happy Birthday, Mel!  We love you and hope you had a lovely time and enjoyed the cake as much as we enjoy having you in our lives!

Sesame Street Birthday

This post is brought to you by the letter C – A – K  &  E.

Kaitlin wanted an Elmo cake for her son’s birthday. It was to be a small personal vanilla cake just for her son.  She told me she preferred fondant, so we started tossing around ideas and began creating the well-known little fella.

To begin, we baked an 8″ round cake. We carved away the edges to form Elmo’s face. We covered with buttercream and a thin piece of fondant. We placed a small piece of black fondant where his mouth would be and placed it on top of the cake.

We mixed up red marshmallow fondant and used our fondant pump (looks like a pump with multiple holes in the end to create a spaghetti effect with fondant) and pressed long strands of fondant out to create the texture of fur.

We cut it into small groups and added it to the bottom of the cake and worked our way up.

After all of the fur was in place, we created the eyes and nose.  After five hours (most time spent on fur) the cake was complete.

Kaitlin, thank you for contacting us and letting us be a part of your son’s special day. We had a blast creating it for him!

Baby Bump

This weekend was our first weekend planned without a cake so that we could do some projects around the house.  However, while I was talking with a woman from Dover last minute about a cake that she was very anxious to get for her son, Ben was talking with Morgan about this baby bump cake that she definitely wanted.  So we took on two last minute cakes amongst the home projects.

Morgan wanted a vanilla light pink and light green baby bump cake to feed 30.  Since we have done this cake around 4-5 times, we knew what we were in for so we didn’t hesitate to take on the cake.

As before, we baked a soccer ball cake and two small ball cakes.  We cut a section out of the two small round balls to fit the breasts snugly against the belly.  We covered the cake in buttercream and a single piece of white fondant.  We then colored a piece of fondant flesh tone and placed it on as the cleavage.  We then trimmed the cake with white and pink, made the pink bow and cut out pink and light green flowers and piped a white buttercream dot in the center of each flower.

Morgan, thank you for stumbling upon and checking us out and asking us to do this cake for you.  We appreciate the opportunity to create a cake for another expecting mom-to-be.
