Skin color (pale pink)
*any other colors*
edible black pen
NIGHT PRIOR TO SHOWER (or event)
Bake cupcakes in cupcake cups
- cup with water
- sm. paint brush
- lay out wax paper
- rolling pin
- clean pen cap
- ruler * or eye it*
- dowel or something to rest your creation on
- zip lock bags
* roll on wax paper
* if fondant gets sticky brush a little bit of flour on work area.
* always put excess fondant in zip lock when not using it
* HAVE FUN!!!
TIME TO CREATE: (using one for example)
1) using skin color rolling to balls 1 = 3/4", 2 = size of peas (or smaller), 2 = very small oval type ones these are ears
2) take paint brush dab in water tap off excess water. paint small amount on bottom on the 3/4" ball attach the two pea shape balls (these are little arms), dab paint brush again, tap off excess water apply small amount of water on both sides of the lg. ball where ears would go
3) lay it against the dowel - so that its basically standing on its hands (work on the others)
*** make sure to put excess fondant into zip lock***
4) Using small amount of black fondant roll it out so that you have a thin string cut just a little more than 1cm. take it and make one single curl in the middle. take paint brush apply water to the top-middle of the lg ball and place curl.
5) *depending on sex of baby * in the picture provided my sister was expecting a boy therefore I took the baby blue fondant rolled it out flat. This is where the clean pen cap is VERY useful. cut out circles. place to the side.
6) roll out yellow (or any color you choose) into a thin string cut into little under 1cm. bend twice looking like a handle.(I know hard to handle but trust me it will be worth it)
7) take paint brush dab water on the circle your just cut out with the pen cap. Attach the handle to it... Now you have a mini pacifier.
8) Again dab water head where you want the pacifier to be(remember you haven't put the eyes on yet)
9) Take your edible black pen and just dot where you want the eye... there is no need to be fancy.
*** welcome to the baby **** now he/she needs to sleep for the rest of the night in a safe place.
DAY OF SHOWER:
SET UP YOUR AREA AGAIN (have your cupcakes near by)
1) Apply icing to the tops of the cupcakes.
2) roll flat any color of fondant you wish. Cut a square that would just drap over the cupcake (approx 3.5" by 3.5") decorate the top as you wish (I put random letters)
3) The baby head will be dry now (how cute). Apply a gob of icing to the edge of the cupcake and gently snuggle the baby into it... clean up any icing that would have drooped in front of the baby. (baby now should stand there securely)
4) take chocolate chips and place about three behind baby ** just lay them there don't push them in** these represent the body.
5) take the square you just decorated, easiest gentle hold in the center of the square place it right behind the curl on the baby head. let it drape down. Baby should look as if he/she is peeking out through it.
**now you have a peek-a-boo baby **
NOTE: people find it difficult eating them - too cute

Chocolate Fudge Cupcake with Cream cheese filling + Soft Marshmallow Fondant
First mix chocolate cake recipe. Bake with cupcake liners. Then mix the cream cheese filling.
While cupcakes are cooled down fill the inside of each cupcake with cream cheese filling. Start making the marshmallow fondant.
Color them & make each individual piece of decoration. Be creative with the faces. I also applied pink edible petal dust at the end on the cheeks to give them those pinch-able cutie pie cheeks!!!
So adorable & so yummy!
This is the perfect Baby Shower Cake for a Boy!

It is a blue, white and chocolate brown, two tier cake for a baby shower.
The cake is supposed to be gift boxes with top box open and baby peeking out.
Fondant decor, smooth butter cream background.
MVP are initials of baby-to-be in Tappit's funky alphabet letters.
The gift box top is Styrofoam covered in fondant and topped with a gum paste bow that I dusted with pearl luster dust.
The lid is held open by a wooden dowel toward the back inserted in the cake.
The baby is also gum paste as are the sheets of 'paper' around the baby's face.
The Bottom tier is a 9" square french vanilla with lemon curd filling and top tier 6" square chocolate cake with whipped chocolate panache filling.
A fun cake for a very sweet mom-to-be.

For this "Crying Baby Face Cake" I made one 8" cake for the head and one 9" cake for the body. Then I covered them in butter cream.
I covered each with flesh tone fondant. I then covered half the 9" with white fondant for the diaper. I cut out flesh colored feet with a cookie cutter and added toes.
Then added real diaper pins and I poked a belly button. I made little arms and hands from fondant and attached them to the body.
I then added ears and a nose to the head and made a crying mouth out of black fondant.
I added the eyes and hair and then attached the head to the body.

This cry baby cake is a 6 inch for the head and a 8 inch for the body.
The arms are made from fondant.
I've made it at least 4 times for baby showers.
The feet above were handcrafted, but you can easily make the feet by using silicone baby feet molds.

For this Sweet Dreams baby shower cake, I used 10" and 6" cakes.
The moon, stars and babies are all made of fondant. Poke lollipop sticks or wooden dowels in the bottom and allow to dry for a couple of days.
The cakes are lemon-butter flavored with Strawberry filling.
I used butter cream frosting, with a hint of almond extract, tinted sunshine yellow.

I made this Sleeping Beauty Baby Shower Cake for my nephew's first baby Sofia.
I used yellow cake with pink food coloring and used pink butter cream.
The sleeping baby is made out of fondant and I used a silicone mold. You can find them here.
I dressed the baby with a light pink, fondant diaper and a bow on her head.
Everyone loved the cupcakes but were afraid to eat the baby because it was too precious. Many people saved it as a souvenir.

This is my grandmother's recipe, regular pound cake, with fresh sweet orange juice, orange peel and walnuts.
No layers, other taste than the fresh orange flavor with walnuts, just a single layer cake.
The baby shower cake decorations were made two days in advance.
I made a little baby, a baby blanket, mosaics, a rubber duck, a baby bathtub, etc.
The day just before the baby shower I baked the cake and made the frosting.
Since here in Venezuela, we are always in summer, sometimes the frosting does not stay as firm as I would like.

The cake is completely edible!
The bed is made out of vanilla cake and fresh strawberry and custard for filling and covered in white fondant.
The baby made with vanilla cake.
After carving the baby, I covered the baby with a flesh-colored fondant.
I made the blanket by cutting several squares of both color and paste them over a very thin rolled fondant and put it over the baby simulating a blanket.
