Curving vines gently rise and fall to add a beautiful touch to your floral cake. They work wonders as a cake side accent.

A variety of leaves will help give your cakes a more realistic garden feel. Add piping gel to your icing to help keep your leaves from breaking.

The bead shape makes impressive borders outlines and accents on letters and designs; also a cute trim on clothing and gingerbread houses. The basis for making piped hearts and figure piping.

Drop flowers are a great way to add flowers quickly. Pipe drop flowers in buttercream directly on your cake, or pipe in royal in advance and place your flowers anywhere. Flowers will be sharper in definition when piped in royal.

A Letter-Perfect Baby Cake is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I enjoyed making this cake for one of our daughter's baby showers about 5 years ago and everyone was fascinated with the cake and thought I had done a great job. I made the letters without a pattern and they turned out great. I really like working with the Wilton Fondant as it rolls out so nicely and you can get the job done so quickly. If you are just a beginner you might also like to just make a cream frosting and but do use the Fondant to cut out the letters as they work so much better and will impress everyone. If you don't hav the tool to make the lines on the cake you can also use a fork and it works great too. Don't be afraid to take on the job as everyone makes mistakes and with time you will become an expert.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have made this cake twice. It looks great when complete. Tips: 1. the most difficult thing was making the BABY letters fit on the cake. I had already placed the ivy border around the edge and the BABY letters ran into the border. The letters were easy to cut using the 101 Cookie Cutter Set. 2. the next challenge was making the phrases fit on to the left page of the book. You have to write very small to make that happen

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm from Ontario; I made this cake for my daughters baby shower. It's very easy to do, the instructions on the website are very self explanatory. The only thing that I would recommend is that you use 3 boxes of cake mix instead of two like the instructions for the open book pan say. It was a hit with everyone and they couldn?t believe that I made it myself, said that I should go into cake decorating. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I loved making this cake. I made my book a nursery rhyme page with Mary had a little lamb and put Mary and the lamb on the next page. Everyone loved it. I used fondant to cover my book and created the side to look like pages with a fondant tool. This was the perfect cake for a baby shower Thank you for your ideas I love them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This cake is quick to put together and the colors can be changed to be specific to boy or girl. I did one in buttercream as well with only the letters and baby/blanket in fondant. both were loved by all

Rated 4 out of 5 by from First attempt with fondant. I didn't have enough room to put all the words, so I just decorated both sides and included just the B A B Y. I liked the fondant circles around the bottom. It was a hit!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have made this cake for three different baby showers. I think this is very cute and I really enjoyed doing it. The most difficult part for me was trying to get the words BABY to fit right.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This cake was wonderful for my friend's baby shower. Working with fondant is still a new technique. I like using it as an accent. it as a distinctive and colorful addition to cakes.
