I made a baptism cake for one of my oldest and dearest friends for her son Gabe’s baptism. Covered in fondant and topped with gumpaste ribbons and flowers, the sides are adorned with piped frosting swirls for a simple and elegant design that everyone seemed really happy to dig into! The inside: Death By Chocolate cake filled and frosted with sinfully decadant chocolate ganache. Fitting for a most holy celebration!
I like doing these cakes where the customer cares that the cakes tastes as good as it looks! That means less fondant. So, the inside is my famous black and white (alternating layers of chocolate cake and vanilla cake with chocolate and vanilla frosting). The outside is vanilla buttercream. The only fondant on this cake is the pink ribbons and polka dots. The white polka dots are piped frosting.
The occasion? Baby shower for an almost-here baby girl!
Who wouldn’t love to get a gift like this?
My contribution to the whole baby butt cake theme. The tiers are as follows:
Bottom: 14″ Dulce de Leche
Middle: 12″ Vanilla Cake w/ Cookies and Cream Filling
Top: German Chocolate Cake w/ coconut pecan caramel frosting
The baby butt was Dulce de Leche
I have a new techniques going on here. The bottom tier is the newest. That’s a damask stencil of pink frosting over the fondant covered cake. I was very happy with the method of stenciling. It was a very stunning reveal.
