Baby Block Cake Over View
I used the 6 X 2 inch square pans and tiered the cakes, each block is about 6 X 4 1/2 in size and I used cookie cutters to make the impressions to make the letters and designs.....Each cake is a different flavor..one is chocolate,one carrot cake,one white and one strawberry and I used Cream Cheese Icing...
Here's the icing recipe I used:
Cream Cheese Icing:
Makes about 2 1/2 cups..
1-package ( 8 ounces ) cream cheese,softened
4-cups powdered sugar
Beat cream cheese, milk and vanilla in large bowl on low speed, until smooth.
Gradually add in powdered sugar,1-cup at a time,until smooth and of spreading consistency.
For the Booties:
You use three large marshmallows, cut one in half and stack it on one of the other marshmallows...you use your icing to stick the two and a half marshmallows together...using your # 16 or # 18 open star tip you begin at the bottom making in-line shells and go all around the two bottom marshmallows, working your way upwards, when you get to the half marshmallow you work your way around it in the same manner,on the top of the lower marshmallow you work your shells in a up and down motion...this gives the illusion of a crocheted look as well :o)
