The Perfect Baby Shower Cake!
This baby shower cake was designed for a baby boy shower, but with simple colour changes, it can be made into a cake to celebrate the birth of a girl. And to get the right amount of cake without compromising the look of the centrepiece cake, we added matching cupcakes!
The 'bum' was Rice Krispie treats formed into a plastic-wrap lined bowl, and trimmed to get a smooth edge before applying buttercream and a layer of white fondant for the diaper. The feet and legs were also formed using Rice Krispie treats.
What's inside? Five thin layers of chocolate cake with a raspberry buttercream and chunks of semi-sweet organic chocolate (56%).
The cupcakes were simple vanilla cupcakes with a butterscotch buttercream centre (carved out to added flavour to these fondant-covered creations).
