Baby Shower Girls Dress Cake

My sisters baby shower was this past weekend and I did the cake, she has 3 boys and has been wanting a girl so bad, and she finally has one on the way, yeahhh. I was so excited to do a pink themed baby shower cake for her. I decided to do a pink dress on the cake with some little sandals that I hand made with gumpaste. I started with an 11 X 15 sheet cake iced in buttercream and them covered with white fondant. To make the dress with fondant I made a template out of paper first and laid it out on the cake. I then used the template to cut out the different pieces I would need to construct the dress. This was a very simple cake to make, and I can think of many other designs that could be done the same way maybe with a onesie, a t- shirt and pants or shorts, myabe even a ruffled up baby blanket laying across the cake. Thats what I love about fondant you can do soooo many things with it that just are not possible with buttercream.

Oh and the baby sandals were just soo cute, I used a little punch kit I got from Wilton that has a butterfly, a flower and a few other little designs with it. I punched out 4 little butterflies and folded then in half then placed them on the sandals to create the look of the butterfly flying I used an edible maker to make small dashes gong from the butterflies. The great thing about making shoes and other things from gumpaste is that you can save them as long as they do not get wet.

I made a video on how to make these baby sandals and I will be posting it as soon as the editing is done so be sure to watch for it.

    Hi, I just wanted to say that this is a beautiful cake. I am expecting a baby girl and was looking for different cakes that you usually do not see at baby showers and just absolutely fell in love with this cake. So when will the video be put up? Can I possibly order it?
