Mommy Had a Little Lamb
The little lamb cake is very cute and very easy to create. Frost a round cake with white icing. Add a single ring of marshmallows all around the circumference of the cake, and two or three extra rows of marshmallows around the top half of the circle for the lamb’s fleece. For the ears, color two marshmallows pink with icing or colored sugar and pinch to a point. Place a pink jellybean in the center of the cake for a nose. A few simple semi-circles in black icing represent the eyes and the mouth.
Traditional baby toys are great inspirations for cake decorations. Teddy bears, rattles, alphabet blocks, Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls, sock puppets, and any other childhood favorites would make a great cake. Here are a few ideas for alphabet block cakes.
Baby’ First Blocks
It’s very easy to cut out block shapes with cake and decorate with a single letter per block. If you aren’t handy with writing in icing, most places that sell cake decorating supplies will have pre-made edible letters. You can use a different color for each block or stick to a single color theme. Use the blocks to spell out “Baby”, the sentence “It’s a boy/girl” or the baby’s name.
All the things we associate with babies are fodder for cake decorating ideas. Baby booties, baby buggies, onesies, and baby blankets have all appeared in cake form.
Beautiful Baby Buggy
The baby buggy cake is elegant but easy to make and looks great in any color. Take a round cake and cut out the upper right quadrant. Pipe a line of icing straight across the middle, then add three or four more angled lines from the center of the cake to the edge of the upper left quadrant to create the buggy’s canopy. For wheels, use doughnuts, cookies, or cut circles from the quadrant you removed and draw spokes with piped icing.
Nursery Rhymes and Fairy Tales
Beloved Mother Goose poems and fairy tale classics provide dozens of charming ideas that can be turned into a cake. If you don’t know whether it is a boy or a girl on the way, you might want a cake with stars and moon (or a star-shaped cake) inscribed with an inspiring message.
