Baby Bum Cake Tutorial
It's another baby shower cake today!! How cool.
Well actually I made the Pregnant Belly Cake and this Baby Bum cake for the same baby shower. Both of them are my regular customers. One is having a boy and the other is having a girl.
Making a Baby Bum Cake can be fun. While it looks complicated it is really quite an easy cake to make. You can also choose to use it as a baby reveal cake making the inside the color of the reveal pink or blue. Here is a video showing you the whole process of carving and decorating
Baby Bum Cake Video Tutorial
I apologize in advance that I am still fairly new at video making so my first few videos are not the best in terms composition and quality. I hope to improve over time. Please bear with me.

As you can see in the video the easiest way to make this cake would be to
- Use an Oval pan and a small ball pan.
If you do not have an oval pan just use a round pan and cut the sides off as I have show you here.
- The little pink blanket is made using fondant and edible pearl luster dust.
- The babies legs are made with fondant that is conditioned with CMC or tylose powder and dyed ivory or skin tone. If you can use modeling chocolate for the legs would be better you will get a more clean and smooth look.
I do hope you find this tutorial useful. Feel free to share your comments below.
