Make your own shower topper! It's easy when you use rolled fondant. Just roll out and cut the baby with our metal gingerbread boy cutter, then attach to a lollipop stick and insert in the cake. You can also make smaller sized babies using a mini gingerbread boy cutter for a cupcake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh I forgot to add I made my Buttons with Wilton Candy Melts which of course made it even easier. I try to use Candy for my decorations if possible. Boy I wish you could go back and edit your posts then I wouldn't have to use another window :}

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really love this cake! I made it last night and now waiting for Customer to pick up today. It didn't take me as long I don't think because I have a Button Mold I purchased on Ebay. A very easy Cake to make.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I loved making this cake! This was my first experience with fondant and found it very easy to work with. I made the buttons up ahead of time as they were the most time consuming due to the number of them. The only change I made to this was that I made bunnies to go on top inspired from the shower invitations. What a hit at the shower! Everyone thought I spent a fortune at a posh bakery. This has inspired me to make more fondant cakes as I have found a new passion.
