Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made this cake for a Co-workers baby shower, it was easy and fun to make, and a what a great presentation, and I only spent a couple of hours one evening decorating. I used cardboard cut outs for the feet and covered them with fondant, instead of sugar cookies, this was time saver and made a great keep sake for Mom. The next time I make this cake I will use rice crispy treats for the arm base and cover them with fondant, I felt the arms used a lot of fondant that goes to waste My hair curl didn't turn out,but the cake was cute with out it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I had someone ask me to make this cake but the mother-to-be could not eat fondant (the texture made her sick). So I made the cake with buttercream icing and used colour flow to make the feet, hair, eyes, cheeks. Used black butter cream for the mouth, and white buttercream for the diaper. Made a ball of skin tone buttercream icing for the nose. It was a big hit at the shower and the everyone loved it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This cake is really cute and simple to make. I made two for a baby shower for twin baby girls. I added some different shape white and pink hearts to the diapers, fondant pink bows with some curly ribbons and baby bibs with the girls names on them. I also made the cakes on the bottom half of the babies a little larger than the head. The little fondant toes I made them were so cute.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this cake just last month, and everyone loved it (the joked about eating the baby). The directions are super simple. I used buttercream instead of fondant (at the mom's request) and it still was lovely. A very simple, but great, cake to make if you're just beginning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This cake was fairly easy and turned out really cute. This was my first cake with fondant and I was very pleased with the outcome. It took a lot of time to mix the color for the skin so allow plenty of time for that. I made it for a baby shower and the mother was very happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have made many cakes overs the years and this one is still one of my favorites, very easy for a novice cake decorator or if pressed for time. I made one cake chocolate and the other a vanilla bean cake. no one wanted to eat the "baby" because it looked so real to them!
