Baby Belly Cake


I made this cake for a friend's baby shower. I've never decorated a cake with fondant before. I made a homemade marshallow fondant, because I heard that it tastes much better than storebought. The cake is white chocolate lemon, and the filling is raspberry and the frosting is a lemon buttercream. It took 3 1/2 cake mixes for the recipe. It's HUGE!

Kim That is so cute! I was thinking about making Emmie's baptism cake with fondant, so tell me which is better and easier to use! Thanks

That cake is absolutely darling! I love the belly button. I am hosting a baby shower in two weeks, and I am dying to know how you did that.

Well, Mindy, I used a marshmallow fondant recipe from allrecipes.com, for the dress and the cutout little daisies. The rest of the cake has a buttercream frosting. The base is the largest wilton cake pan I could find (holds 2 cake mixes) and the belly is a pyrex bowl. The boobs are extra large cupcakes. I just put all the cakes together and frosted it all with buttercream to get the shape then laid the fondant on top. The belly button is just a rolled up little ball of fondant. Good luck if you decide to try it! It was a little time consuming, but really not too hard.

Oh! And the cake itself was delicious! I got the recipe at http://www.recipezaar.com/Raspberry-White-Chocolate-Cake-With-Lemon-Buttercream-355182 .
