There’s a baby on the way, and that means it's time to break out your extra-adorable cake decorating skills. We’ll show you how to make 7 delicious, over-the-top desserts … and also give you lots of ideas for what to write on them!
1. To the Woods
We officially found something cuter than tiny baby shoes: Tiny baby shoes made of fondant! Perfect for a future plaid-wearer, the key to these realistic work boots is to layer the sole three times. (And if these aren’t the baby-to-be’s style, we’ve also got how-to's for flip flops, Mary Jane's, sneakers and more.)
2. All Dressed Up
We’ll let you in on a little secret: You don’t need to splurge on a special pan to make this onsie cake! Bake up a rectangular treat, and we’ll show you how to shape and cut it. (Tint the batter pink or blue to turn this cutie into a gender reveal cake!)
3. Catching Zzzs
Cue the awwws. This sleeping baby cake topper starts with a tear-drop shaped body, and then gets lots of adorable fondant details. Customize her blankie with any colors you like!
4. Gentle Giant
Celebrate the new baby with the sweetest shower theme: Elephants! To keep this animal looking cute, be sure to mold the head and trunk from one piece of fondant.
5. Keep it Clean
Splish, splash this baby bunny is taking a bath! Take that “shower” theme literally (and adorably) with this fondant cake topper featuring details like water droplets and bubbles. Just make sure you leave time for each piece to dry before assembling!
6. Cuteness is Brewing
We raise your tea party theme, and bring you a Mad Hatter theme! This tiered masterpiece pays homage to the classic character, while adding a golden rattle on top that mom-to-be will surely love. (Into this theme? We’ve got tons of Mad Hatter party ideas to go with the cake.)
7. Aaalll the Toys
Blocks, rubber ducky, stuffies, oh my! Start spoiling the new babe now with a cake filled with fun. The add-ons are all easy to make with fondant when you start off with basic shapes.
