. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Or is your brand new niece/nephew having a special day?
After the next two posts you could bring the cake.
A cake they will never forget……..is a perfect gift!
Here’s the cake I’ll be sharing with you:
Don’t you just love all of those sweet baby clothes from the bottom tier?
I am going to show how to make the clothing on the clothes line today and then in my next post I will show you how I made the shoes.
But remember, be creative and add your own special touches and designs!
- Fondant roller- this makes imprints into fondant
- Buttercream in a piping bag with a #2 tip
- Onsies pattern- I drew this and cut it out of paper. Or you can buy a onesie cookie cutter.
- Square cutter
- Small and medium circle cutters
- Gumpaste in 3 different colors
All supplies are available where cake decorating supplies are sold. Micheal’s and Joann’s for sure.
Lightly grease your counter and sprinkle with corn starch.
Roll out your gumpaste pretty thin and dust the top of the gumpaste with a small amount of corn starch. This will keep your paper from sticking (If you are using a cookie cutter just cut your shapes out).
Lay your cut-out on top of the fondant and using a sharp knife or (exacto knife) cut out a onesie.
(if you think you’ll cut into your counter…..use a cutting board to cut on.)
Make two of each color.
Take your piping bag and decorate your onesies.
You can also use small cutters like the star and flower if you like.
For the bibs: cut out medium circles first then cut out small circles near the top.
Make 2 of each color.
For the blankets: Cut squares, two of each color.
Let all of your pieces dry on a corn starch dusted baking sheet for 24-48 hours.
All of your little baby items…..waiting to be placed on your baby cake.
Next post we are going to go over how to make those little baby shoes.
