Strolling in Style Baby Cake is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sometimes simplcity is the best. This one is easy and fast to put together, the most time consuming was the dot work around the base. I created a template for the little swirls along the side. Then I used a toothpick to mark where the dots would go. This was problematic in that I did all the marking first and then it made it difficult to follow, I would suggest if your not going to do the tip 2 swirls by hand, mark one, pipe it, then very carefully mark the next trying not to smudge the previous one. For the lettering I created a stencil so as to keep the lettering neat. As a side note, mine was for a girl, I just substituted the blue for pink and left the other colors the same. Mine also had a bottom tier that also had the swirls on the sides with fondant balls along the seam. Very cute.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This cake was really easy. I used blue icing instead of fondant and only put the stroller in fondant. I used brown icing for the writing, I think it looked better. I also made it as a two layer to incorporate different flavors. Also, since the people I made it for don't care for the taste (or cost) of fondant, I didn't cover the cakeboard in it, I used the fancifoil. The dot technique was easy and put just the right touches on the sides.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I had a lot of fun making this cake for a friend's daughter and I made it with pink fondant instead of the blue. I think the hardest part was cutting out the stroller. Instead of putting the swirls around the base I cut out pink and brown fondant circles and put them around the side. I used a cake stand that had 3 separate tiers and put the cake on one tier and put pink and brown frosted cupcakes on the other two tiers.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This was the first time that I make a cake with fondant. Made this for a baby shower for a co-worker that was having a boy. For using fondant for the first time, I found it very hard to get the fondant thin enough to lay on the cake the right way. Making the fondant carriage was difficult as well, had a hard time getting the fondant thin enough. Finished product was good and the baby shower guests loved it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Still I am planing to do it for my Friend but the swirls on the side is it with candy melts or butter creme icing?? actually it is not clear, sometimes Wilton do not describe in more details or confusing details they should do it as steps 1,2,3, etc So please if anyone know how can I know the good thickens for the fondant to cover the cake sometimes it is so thick and sometimes it is so thin and it ripped off

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was a design that a friend of mine asked me to make for her shower and it was so cute. I used a rectangle pan and the stroller fit perfectly on it. Wilton did such a great job with the stroller pattern, it's so easy to just cut out the fondant design and put it on. This cake was easy and elegant.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I had difficulty with the stroller. I tried it in fondant, and it ended up breaking as I moved it ot the cake and didn't dry evenly. I then tried using melted chocolate, which worked a bit better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The mother-to-be and all of the shower guests loved it! It was cute, but a little sheik, which is what I was looking for. Not too difficult to do and I was very happy with the results.
