This is one of the fanciest party decorations I have ever seen! It is so pretty, that I knew I must share it with you.

This is truly a masterpiece! Hopefully, if you love it too, it will inspire you to create something similar for your baby shower or birthday party.

There are balloon garland / arch supplies you can buy that will help you get this same look.

I actually bought this same balloon kit and, surprisingly, it wasn't that hard to do at all. (of course I forgot to take pictures of it!) I was skeptical and thought I would just get frustrated and end up throwing it away, but the balloon arch actually turned out super cute!

Baby Sleeping On The Moon Cake

Moon and Stars Baby Shower Cake - Ideas for moon and star cakes

by: Rebekah Springer

I made this for a friend of mine, and had free reign over the design of the cake. It is one of my favorites.

I used a 2-layer 10" white cake with raspberry filling and a 2-layer 8" chocolate with raspberry filling. 

I made the baby out of fondant, painting on closed eyes, a mouth and black hair with watered down food color gel and let dry for several days.

I made the moon and stars out of colored fondant and covered in edible glitter. I made the moon quite a bit thicker than the stars to 

help it keep stabilized. I glued a wooden dowel on the moon with royal icing to stick it down into the cake. These also dried for a few days.

I frosted the cakes in white butter cream and piped on a very light blue cloud border and a large cloud on top in the middle. 

I put the baby on the cloud using wooden dowels to keep him from sinking into the butter cream cloud, and I placed the stars here and there and put the moon on last piping some "clouds" around the base to help keep stable.

Sweet Dreams Moon Cake

Ideas for moon and star cakes

This Sweet Dreams Moon Cake was for my friend's baby shower. It was my first baby shower cake. 

I had So much fun doing it!

Sweet Dreams was the theme. Its an 8" and a 6" cake. They're covered in fondant and then stacked. The moon was made from rice krispies. 

I molded them to the shape of the moon then let it set. I iced it then covered it in fondant. The baby & booties are also made from fondant. She loved it!

Snoopy Moon & Stars Cake

Ideas for moon and star cakes - by: Junebug and Jenny, Moreno Valley, CA 

This Snoopy Themed Cake is a 3 tier round cake that we made in Wilton's 2" performance pan set 6", 10", 14" that I bought from Michael's craft store.

After baking and frosting we covered each tier in white marshmallow fondant.

After covering we then stacked the cakes using pvc pipe as dowels from home depot because they are thicker & will support the cake better than the small thin wooden dowels.

Once the cake is stacked we then added all of the moons and big stars which we made from gum paste by adding Wilton's gum-tex to the marshmallow fondant & colored with Wilton gel color rolled out then cut out with cutters from Wilton's 101 cutter set & small stars are from Wilton's fondant cut-out set.

The babies name was cut out of gum paste with letter cutters also from Wilton's 101 set.

We rolled out the gum paste but kept it thick enough to look like block letters. The baby blue ribbon around each tier was made from marshmallow fondant that I measured with a ruler then cut out with a pizza cutter.

The snoopy cake topper is a snoopy mold we bought on eBay that we greased & filled with white gum paste.

I let it sit in there for about 10 mins to set then took it out of the mold & let dry all the way through for about 30 hours then hand painted the eyes, nose, ears, mouth & collar with a thin paint brush & Wilton's black gel color.
