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.

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.

Simple Kind of Love

Our good friend, Sarah, wanted to come down and help us do a cake (actually, two different ones) for one of her friends that is getting married in April.

She wanted to cake to be a simpler yet elegant cake.  A red velvet caked to feed 15, black and white as the colors and a monogram on top.

We baked two 8″ round red velvet cakes and covered with buttercream.  We made the monogram from royal icing the night before so it would have time to harden.  After placing it on top, we piped a black bead border around the top and bottom.

Due to the family friendly atmosphere of this site, I will not post the second cake we made for her.  It is like none that we have ever made before, but actually had a blast making.  Just think bachelorette party and let your mind run wild.  If you ever bump into me and want to see it, just ask.  I’ll be happy to share it and share a giggle. (Never thought I would have to censor myself from a cake.  Boy, the things we do for our friends.)

Belly Full of Cake

Jodi, Ben’s cousin, contacted us a few weeks ago regarding a baby shower cake for a friend. She wanted a strawberry Pregnant Belly cake to feed 20 with pink and purple accents.

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 fondant to form the dress. We colored a small triangle piece of fondant tan and placed it on top to form the cleavage. White strips of fondant were cut and placed as the trim of the dress. Next, we colored some fondant pink and created the bow, ribbons and trim around the top of the dress. We then cut pink and purple flowers and placed them around the cake and piped a white buttercream dot in the center of each. After four hours total, the cake was complete. (See image below for cake progression)

Congrats, Gabe, on your sweet baby that will be here before you know it! Thanks, Jodi, for the opportunity to do this cute cake.

Cute As A Button

Rebecca, from Active Screen Graphics in Clarksville, contacted me a couple weeks ago about doing a baby shower cake.  The gender for the baby is unknown so a gender neutral design and color scheme was needed.  She decided on a french vanilla cake to feed 40.

Given all creative freedom on the cake, my husband and I sat and baked up some ideas and decided on a two tier yellow, brown and white cake.  We baked two-10″ round cakes and two-6″ round cakes.  We added yellow buttercream and then stacked the tiers.  We made up some brown and white marshmallow fondant.  We rolled out the brown fondant and cut strips to create the ribbon.  After attaching it to the cake, we piped in the white stitches and a white bead border around both tiers.  We then created the bows, placed them and piped the stitching.  We cut out white flowers and brown buttons and added them to the cake.  We came back and piped a white dot in the center of the flowers and thread on the buttons as if they were sewn to the cake.  We then created the white blanket to adorn the top of the cake.  Now it was time for sculpting the bear (our favorite part, if all goes as planned).  We sculpted the bear’s body, arms, legs and head from brown marshmallow fondant and attached them together.  We placed it on top, gave a smile of approval and walked away two happy cake makers.

Thank you, Rebecca, for the opportunity to do this cake.  We had fun!
