Baby shower cake and I need tips

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I was asked to do a baby shower cake. It has a baby butt and legs and feet on top under a blanket. Any ideas on how to make the baby butt, legs, and feet. I want everything to be edible so a ball of fondant isn't one of my top ideas. Here is a picture of the cake I was asked to make

Use RKT and cover with fondant.

 

Gag. I wish those severed baby body cakes/half the baby buried in the cake would go away.

I completely agree, I refuse to do them. Those and the pregnant belly cake. I mean, how to you even serve them? "Who wants to do the C-section?" "Who wants the breast?" "Who wants the rump?" It is just nasty, and twisted to simulate cannibalism. 

Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.

for the feet, you could  do modelling chocolate or marzipan? Maybe? Also, I have  the same feelings about cutting open a cake baby (or cake kittens/puppies!). Eeeeee~

The "baby" is made from rice crispy's as well as the legs and feet can be. This is designed to be a cake topper and to be removed before cutting into the actual cake below. If you look on the Wilton cake site they give really good directions. Oddly enough I had a client contact me today and ask me to replicate that same exact cake lol
