I shared this Baby Onesie Baby Shower Cake on Facebook yesterday and thought I’d quickly share a few details about it.    I did this cake many many months ago and as happens sometimes, it got lost and overlooked in the thousands of pics on my hard drive.

But a few days ago someone asked me about a baby shower cake and I thought of this one… and realized I had never shared it.  I’m so glad I remembered though, because this cake is so sweet and honestly, so easy to do!

I carved it from a 10″ square cake then covered the cake in vanilla buttercream and then light blue homemade marshmallow fondant.   To get the shape, I did a Swagbucks image search for a baby onesie template, then printed one out and used it as a guide.

I remember being actually pretty sad that all of my “babies” are too big for me to actually have a onesie in the house anymore :-(  Anyway…

Onesie Cake Sleeve

I used a stitching tool to do all of the stitching around the sleeves, legs, and letters.

Onesie Car

I hand-cut the car, but used Alphabet Cookie Cutters from BrownCookie.com to do Mason’s name.  I absolutely love those letters!!

Buttons

For the buttons, I think I used this Wilton Silicone Mold (if not, I used something very similar… I have a few different ones).

Ballet and Ribbon Roses Cake

Ballet and Ribbon Roses Cake

Let me start with… I’m not a morning person.  Not.at.all.  So the fact that I went to bed around 2am last night and then was up at 6:15am is a great indication of how I’m feeling right now.   Can you say DEAD TIRED?

Yeah.  I’m super duper tired.  Or rather… completely exhausted.  And cranky – because  my alarm went off before our rooster crowed.  Not even kidding (we do have a rooster).  And then I’m tired some more.

But because I’ve been a serious slacker this week with blogging, I really wanted to share a cake today and since I made this one yesterday – it seemed easy enough to blog about (and fresh on my very fried and tired mind).

So… the Ballet and Ribbon Roses Cake.  This sweet little cake is simple, yet elegant and girly and just plain pretty.  It was a 9 inch round cake – white almond sour cream was the flavor.

Fondant Ballet Slippers

It was covered in pink vanilla buttercream – and the decorations were all homemade marshmallow fondant.

Ballet and Roses Cake Name Plate

I used a plaque cutter from CheapCookieCutters.com and the Fox Run Alphabet cutters to do the letters.  For the ribbon border – I used my FMM Ribbon Cutter – read this post to see how I do ribbon borders.

Ribbon Rose

Around the top of the cake and in the center – I addedsimple ribbon roses.   These little flowers are so easy to make and really add a little extra “pretty” on the cake, ,dontcha think?   It’s hard to see from the pictures, but I dusted the ribbon roses and ballet slippers with orchid luster dust before putting them on the cake so they shimmered just a little bit!

In the words of my sweet MawMaw, “if the good Lord is willing and the creek don’t rise”, I’ll share the very easy tutorial for the roses tomorrow!  Isn’t that the funniest saying? You really have to hear it being said to fully grasp it if you haven’t heard it before.   Regardless, it always makes me smile and miss her.
