This is one of those days… so I’m going to share a pretty simple cake and the details for it – then call it a day! Besides – this is one of the few 2013 cakes that I have left and wanted to share.
So – without rambling on and one – here’s what I can tell you. I made this cake not long after making the Baby Gender Reveal Cake that also had tiny Converse shoes, so I was definitely getting more practice on those!
And it doesn’t matter how many times I make these, I’m still all gushy over them. They’re just SO cute!! If you want to make these, you’ll just need to print out a template and have a few all-purpose tools on hand (gum paste, a pastry wheel, xacto blade, mat, sugar glue, stitching tool, and a ribbon cutter is helpful too).
The cake itself was baked in 8″ round pans (I use Magic Line pans). I baked two layers and filled and frosted them with vanilla buttercream. It was vanilla cake and decorated with homemade marshmallow fondant for the polka dots and borders. I used simple round cutters to do the polka dots and a silicone pearl mold to make the border.
And that’s it. Overall, this cake was pretty simple. I also made matching yellow frosted cupcakes to go with it but I seem to have forgotten to take pictures of those.
So, what do you think? Do you have any questions? Leave me a comment and I’ll answer if I can!
