Rated 5 out of 5 by from I absoultly loved making this cake. Loved the colors and i even got the kids involved with rolling the fondant and everything. I ended up putting two blue birds on the top as well. It turned out great. The person who had the babyshower ended up being able to take the fondant squares and perserving them, and put it in a frame and it is now hanging in the babys room. With a note that says with love me! This cake was so much fun. thank you Wilton for the great idea!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I used this as my basic idea, and then added on some embellishments like a rubber ducky and blocks on top. I also figured out that there was just enough room around the sides of my cake to write "It's a Boy!" on the blocks. Next time if I do it for a girl, I can just eliminate the ! mark and still use the same color pattern. My friend was so happy with her shower cake. It was a little labor intensive cutting out all the shapes and letters, but it was worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this cake for my daughters baby shower. It was my first time covering the whole cake with fondant and that took me a little time, but I got it. It was the day before Easter so I made the Checkerboard Pastel Easter Cake design and everyone LOVED it! I use the Wilton website for everything! It is so easy to use, informative, has new ideas, and answers all my questions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was one of my very first Fondant cakes. Using the ready to use fondant made the process simple. As a beginner I had a difficult time with the ribbon bottom border, so I opted to use a pink shell border (butter cream). Instead of repeating Baby a second time for the blocks - I used the baby's name (it was a 4 letter name so it worked great!).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I did this cake for one of my fondant class cakes but I also gave it to a girl I know that was having a baby shower. I made a baby to go on top with a blue blanket covering him exept for his face and feet. It turned out to be really cute and it was fun to make. Not hard to decorate at all.
