never thought i’d make a belly cake, only b/c i have a rule not to make a cake that resembles a living person or a normal body part. think it’s kind of morbid to eat something that’s supposed to be a person, baby, you know. gross stuff, dead stuff, halloweeny stuff is all ok.
but this was a special request for a special baby shower.
boobs were molded in rice bowls using rice krispie treats. belly was a cake baked in my stainless steel mixing bowl.
bow and trim were all rolled fondant. also i tucked crumpled up syran wrap under the fondant to create the ruffles. (and of course removed them before the party)
big mistake was painting the fondant and not coloring it before covering the cake. i thought i would accomplish a uniform pink using food paint….nope, didn’t work. it was a rainy humid day too and that didn’t help at all either.
luckily the overall cake was a success and it was enjoyed by the mother-to-be.
