Black and Green Baby Shower Cake Chevron Clothes Line

I had the best time making this Chevron Clothes Line Baby Shower Cake.  I made it around a year ago – but it was one of my very first “baby clothes line” cakes and I just adore cakes with little baby clothes hanging on a clothes line.

Why?  I don’t know – the’re just the cutest thing ever, dontcha think?

If you couldn’t tell (and I’m sure you could) – this was a buttercream covered cake.  And I used modeling chocolate to make the decorations!   I think this time last year is when I really started getting into using modeling chocolate (and falling in love with it!).

Sooooo, let me give you a few details!  First up, the cake was black and shades of lime green.  Love, love, love me some lime green!!

Chevron Baby Shower Cake

For the chevron pattern, I used a large Chevron Cutter from CheapCookieCutters.com.   I like the look of breaking up the pattern, so I cut the strips into segments (which also makes it SO much easier to handle!).   For the tiny border, I used a #2 round tip to pipe an itty-bitty bead border.

For the letters on the cake, I used some of my favorite Alphabet Cutters from BrownCookie.com.  For the baby clothes, I hand cut them.    And it really wasn’t all that bad because there weren’t many of them and I kept the shapes simple.

BUT, if that is daunting for you… there are cookie cutters.  In fact, when I did this most recent baby clothes line cake here, I mostly used cutters (except for the tiny pants).

Here are some links for ya:

The cake was a 10″ round cake and the flavor was White Almond Sour Cream.  And that’s it!!

Pink Roses Sheet Cake

This is a cake fail.  Or maybe not a total fail, but definitely a failure from my original plan.

It’s what happens when you plan to do roses around the outside of a sheet cake, then write “Happy Birthday…”  in the middle.

But you can’t write on cake.  Not with buttercream.  Period.

But you try anyway.

My plan was something sort of like this Thanksgiving cake.  Except I didn’t attempt to write on the Thanksgiving one.

What happened was… you made it so ugly in the center that you had to cover it up.

Except you did’t have enough of the original pink to do it, so you had to mix in some white.

But you were still supposed to write “Happy Birthday…” on it.

So you dig out the Pazzles last minute to cut out letters.   To put on top.  Of the two-toned roses.

Anyway.

The good news is that Mrs. Maxine loved it.  And she had a very happy birthday.

And I learned my lesson.

I will not try to write with buttercream again.  Ever.

If you hear me talking about writing with buttercream, please remind me that I can’t.

Here are details if you’d like to copy my “failure”.

The cake was vanilla:  Vanilla Cake Recipe.

The buttercream was good ole Vanilla Buttercream.

I used a Ateco #825 from this Large Tube Set to pipe the roses.

The color was Americolor Deep Pink.

The letters were cut from homemade marshmallow fondant.

Using a Pazzles.

The end.
