Banafish Baby Shower Cake - Blog

This latest design was inspired by some lovely Banafish baby bedding. It’s decorated in tinted vanilla fondant and accented with a handmade sugar anemone flower (expect to see lots more sugar flower designs from Wicked Cakes!).

Polka Dots & Flowers

Happy Easter! I had a great weekend of friends, family, and baking… hope you did, too! :) I did two projects this weekend, one which I’ll post on now, one for later. The first was an experiment in a new technique for me… big, beautiful gum paste flowers. This little pink cake has white gum paste polka dots and a single, handmade ivory bloom. It was a great learning experience - I’m looking forward to doing more handmade sugar flowers on upcoming projects!

Girly Baby Shower

Wednesday, March 25th, 2009

This little baby shower cake was inspired by the beautiful watermelon-colored invitations for the shower… It’s sour cream white cake with tangy lemon curd meringue buttercream filling and vanilla fondant icing.  All the little decorations are done in tinted vanilla fondant and royal icing.

Gift Box Baby Shower Cake

Sunday, March 8th, 2009

I’m so excited about this latest cake… One of the executives at my company and his wife recently adopted a beautiful baby boy, and we’re doing a shower in the family’s honor tomorrow.  This cake is a “gift box cake” as made famous by Confetti Cakes in NYC…  Such a fun cake to make, and it really makes a statement (or so I think!).  The cake itself is sour cream white cake, and the filling/frosting is lemon curd buttercream.  I’m also providing vanilla/vanilla cupcakes to go along with the cake.

Baby Shower - Little Lamb

Sunday, February 1st, 2009

This was another great baby shower project…  this one for a friend of a friend.  The momma-to-be requested a lamb theme to align with the shower theme, so I decided to do a handmade little lamb figurine topping the cake.  The cake itself was a new recipe:  lemon cake with both lemon buttercream and blackberry fillings.  I iced with tinted vanilla fondant.  The little lamb is fondant and is painted with some edible glitter dust to give it the sheen.

Baby Shower - Planes & Elephants!

Sunday, February 1st, 2009

This was a really exciting project for me… A friend of mine asked me to do two cakes for a friend’s baby shower… each with a unique theme.  Cake #1 was to be airplane-inspired to honor the pilots in the celebrant’s family (chocolate cake with dark chocolate buttercream & vanilla fondant).   Cake #2 was to reflect the shower invitation with little baby feet and a sentimental baby elephant (white cake with vanilla buttercream & vanilla fondant).  All of the figures are hand-made/hand-painted fondant!
