Baby Shower Cake
This cake was a different one, I had never done a nappy bottom cake before, and this one was a fun one to work out.... it was a 3 layer mud upon which another tier is placed which becomes the nappy bottom.
It was a cute cake and one that I worked out as I went along... as usual for me.....It was a mix of Fondant modelling which I drew on my sculpting skills and mud cake stacking skills.... It turned out to be a two Tier dressed up as sculpture really.
So I took a 3 layer stack mud with chocolate ganache, and i fondanted with white and added polka dots in gelato colours.
I took the 2nd tier and carved the edges off so the nappy wouldnt have any sharp adges. I added the white fondant nappy and 2 peachy fondant legs.... I did this off the cake and added it as a whole tier later.
I made 2 little feet and 10 little toes, adding them onto the cake after i positioned the nappy into the cake.
I added a yellow layer of fondant which looked like a shirt or dress,
All that wasleft to do was add more polka dots and the writing!
Some detail of the feet, 10 beautiful toes, and some creases added on the feet for authenticity.
this is the other side
some pretty fondant ribbon and bows, makes it a lovely cake for a baby shower!
