Baby Shower Cake: Cute as a Button!

The scrapbook paper I used to cover the cakeboard for this cake turned out to be the button inspiration for this cake, but the actual design was a straight rip-off from this awesome cake by Maylene. 
I was just shaping the buttons when Molly walked in and gushed, “Mom, you should put buttons on the side of the cake instead of polka dots!” Ah, my little mini-me!

Cake is WASC with vanilla bean butter cream filling and icing. All accents are fondant and everything is 100% edible.

Remember it will be any day now that we’ll be doing our big “2,000 Fans” (Facebook) giveaway.  Keep watching for details.

Oven’s on – I’ll be back soon.

  1. I'd love to see this cake done in girl colors!

  2. I have 2 questions. What do you use to adhere your fondant accents to your cake? And, do you refigerate cakes like this? Thank you!

  3. You can make an edible fondant glue (google that and you'll find loads of recipes) or you can just use water with a small paint brush (which is what I do). The refrigerator acts as a dehydrator, so I never refrigerate my cakes. Butter cream is shelf save for several days.

  4. Thank you so much for your quick response! I use gum glue, but was curious if you used the same thing. The space I lease in a local mall is too warm, so I had to refigerate a cake similar to this. The fondant began to sweat and run on the buttercream icing :0(
