Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made a simplified version of this cake for a baby shower. I made just 1 9" double layer cake. I covered it in fondant as instructed. I made 1 fondant baby and since I didn't have to make rainbow ramps to connect to other cakes, I made a rolled fondant rainbow. Much easier than making the ramps. The baby was adorable. The directions give you detailed instructions for the amount of fondant to use for the torso, head, and limbs, so I had a proportionally correct baby on the first try. The baby and rainbow took a while to dry, so make sure to make them at least 3 days in advance. Instead of making fondant balls and clouds for the decoration and trim, I piped buttercream to get these features. I really liked how the buttercream clouds looked, soft, 3D, and fluffy. Also, my fondant to cover the cake was a little old and tore a bit when I covered the cake. I was able to pipe clouds over the tears and it looked like it was suppose to be that way. The piped clouds were very forgiving and totally fixed any flaws. It was a co-ed shower & this cake is neither girly not syrupy sweet. Everyone (guys included) loved the cake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I saw this cake and fell in love. It is adorable. I made this cake for my friends babyshower, we were unsure what the baby was going to be so this works well for either boy or girl. I had never really made anything out of fondant or gumtext before and I was affraid it would be difficult. Since we were going to have numberous people I made all three layers of this cake a little larger then instructed. Working with the fondant was actually fun. I enjoyed making these babies, they were surprisingly easy, it was like playing with play dough. I rolled out each piece and using vanilla they attached easily. I then used the edible cookie markers to draw on their faces. The Rainbows and Umbrellas were just as fun and easy to make. I made the rainbows, umbrellas, and babies a few days before to give them time to dry. I used three different flavors of cake one flavor for the 8 inch, one for the twelve inch and one for the sixteen inch. After each cake was baked and on the cardboard it was iced and then I rolled out the blue fondant and covered each cake. Using the small iron tool, I smoothed out the fondant. This was my first time using fondant so it went on fairly easy. I did find you must work quickly since it does start to dry right away. I cut out the clouds of fondant and attached them to the cake using vanilla flavoring, Each cake was connected using the rainbows, using icing I made clouds around them. I placed the babies and umbrellas randomly and this cake was a hit. This cake was fun, easy and tasted great. With step by step instructions anyone can make a cake.
