Made to look like embroidered letters, this Sew Adorable Baby Cake is great for cake decorators who also love to craft! Featuring a big bold message, this would be a wonderful baby shower cake to make for boys and girls alike. Leave the letters BABY if you want, or get creative and personalize the cake with baby’s name! Use color flow icing to create these letters, but plan ahead…they’ll need to be made at least three days in advance.
At least 3 days in advance: Make color flow letters. Tape patterns to cake board and cover with waxed paper; spray lightly with pan spray and wipe with tissue. Outline letters with tip 3 and full-strength color flow; flow in with thinned color flow in cut parchment bag. Make extras to allow for breakage and let dry 3 days. Pipe tip 2 outline stitching in full-strength color flow.
Let dry. Also: Prepare base board. Using pan as a guide, cut board 1/2 in. larger than pan on all sides; cover with chocolate fondant.
Bake and cool 2-layer cake, 3 in. high. Prepare and cover cake with 60 oz. pink fondant. Position cake on base board; pipe tip 7 bead bottom border in buttercream.
At party: Position letters. Raise B?s with sugar cubes to overlap other letters, attaching with dots of full-strength color flow.
*Combine Brown with Red-Red for brown shown. Combine Pink with Royal Blue for pink shown. Combine Royal Blue with Violet for blue shown. Combine Lemon Yellow with Ivory for yellow shown. Combine Violet with Royal Blue and Pink for violet shown.
Make a fondant-covered cake playful by adding fondant alphabet blocks. Create the blocks using pastel-colored Ready-to-Use Rolled Fondants, the two largest-sized Square Cut-Outs cutters and Alphabet/Numbers Cut-Outs cutters.
