I made this cake over 2 years ago. I’m posting here to be included in my cake decorating profile… can’t remember what kind of tips/methods I used, would have to look closer at the picture.
I made this cake for our friend Jing when she was pregnant with her baby. It was a good chance for me to practice piping booties, beads, daisy flowers, ribbons, leaves, ruffles etc. Colors used: white, blue and yellow. I saved some basic white icing aside for beads and ruffles. Base coated the cake in light blue, then added in more blue coloring as I moved along for the words, string on the ruffles and the strips on the side of the cake. This was the first time I came up with multicolor strips on the side, so you can see there were gaps between strips. Luckily the base coat was in blue so the gaps were not as obvious. I later bought a cake marker and it makes the job a lot easier. About the words, I didn’t want the very typical “It’s a Boy!”. I saw “Peek-A-Boo” on internet, but decorated a baby peeking out of the blanket was too much work– finally I came up with “Bundle of Joy”. I need more practise on the words though. Overall I was happy with the cake, especially with the baby blue color theme.
