Rated 5 out of 5 by Meowmom from The cakes were easy to make but doing the footprints in royal icing (I believe) didn't work out so good, I ended up using regular buttercream icing thinned out, worked out well.When I did the outline on the cakes, I make copies of the footprints and traced the outlines on parchment paper with piping gel. I did let them sit for several days but it never set properly and broke when I tried to gently peel the parchment paper off. I used pastel mint flavored drops for the borders, I also put some on the top edge of the cakes, spread out though, just added a little something else to the cakes. Got alot of compliments on the cakes :) Overall it turned out great! :) I would do this again and try to do the footprints again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LesaVaughn from I used this for a baby shower at work for a boy. I used the smaller paisley pan for the feet and placed them on top of a large square cake. I used the frozen buttercream transfer technique for the feet. I used the ball border both around the feet and the square cake. I used 2 different colors of blue and white for the balls and iced the primarily white. I also added party favor type rattles for embellishment, a cute blue rubber ducky new baby bath toy, and 2 new blue pacifiers. Got lots of compliments on taste and the looks. Would definitely do this one again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by smiles1218 from This was such a delight to make. Your instructions are amazing!!! Follow the instructions makes it easy. Taking your time with no distractions, Beginners will have no problem. Just amazing! what I love the most is that it can be made in any color or for a boy or a girl. The pattern works great! You can trace it on the cake and fill it in or you can cut it out of fondant, which is even better, So to all please try it. You wont be disappointed:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by thats_sweet! from I loved the footprint idea, so I used it on a large oval cake I made for a baby shower. Instead of using color flow footprints, I made the footprints out of baby blue fondant. I kept the colorful ball border (fondant) and added multicolored (fondant) daisies and hearts. The cake was beautiful and the mom-to-be could not have been HAPPIER! Thanks for the idea! ~Monsi of Pinellas Park, FL

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cakerator from I used this design on a 14X19 sheet cake. I used pink icing to outline and fill the cute baby feet and then covered them with Wilton pink sugar sprinkles. This made the cake 'POP'! It was very cute!! For this cake I used a strawberry cake with cream cheese icing, then used a strawberry buttercream icing for the pink baby feet and borders. Beautiful!

Rated 3 out of 5 by J'see from I made this for a baby shower ( girl) and it came out pretty nice, but instead of the color flow I made the footprints out of fondant, I also made it for another baby shower(boy) but I made cupcakes out of the fondant. Everybody liked them. Will definately try it next time with color flow, just couldnt get the hang of it the first time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by kneadacake from I made this cake for a friends baby shower! I made the feet out of fondant. I just put the pattern on top of the fondant and used a pizza cutter to cut itout. It worked great and was very easy. This way I didn't need to do so much work days ahead with the color flow.

Rated 4 out of 5 by wendy0618 from I made this cake for a baby shower and everyone loved the idea. It was pretty easy to do except the colorflow feet didn't dry after a couple of days so I had to just draw the feet on the cake and then used frosting to fill them in. My daughter loved it!
