I will be making a baby Shower Cake soon I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to make frosting that looks like clouds, I've seen some cakes on here that look like the baby is sleeping in clouds.

I've made rosette type clouds with just a coupler, also you can use cut marshmallows (have done that too). You could probably use gumpaste or fondant to hand mold some clouds too. icon_smile.gif

You can look at my pictures and see my celestial baby cake. I just used regular Wilton Class buttercream and thinned it a bit, then added some piping gel until it was the consistency I wanted. I piped it out using only a coupler.

Did you make your own buttercream or did you buy it already made? and what did you thin it with?

Thanks for the relpy

I just used hot water to thin it down then added some piping gel until it kinda got fluffy.

Molly2, I've done the same as Misdawn, except I did use a large star tip (as seen on my CareBear cake in my photos). I think anyway you do it, as long as you make little hills & valleys to make it look puffy, would work. Good luck with your cake.

I would actually suggest using tip 12. Maybe trace the outline of a cloud shape, onto parchment, and then using piping gel re-trace the outline, and transfer it onto the frosting. Good luck!

Thanks for the compliment.

On my carebear cake I used a 4B star tip, but if you're looking for a smoother look, you could just use the coupler without a tip.
