This is a photo of a baby shower cake I made for a friend. It is made from 5 rolled-up baby blankets ($1 each) held together with straight pins. The lace around the bottom is also pinned on. No hot glue is used so this can be taken apart with no damage to the blankets. The top of the cake consists of 2 blankets, with baby washcloths rolled to resemble flowers and the little doll on top is an inexpensive one from Walmart. This is very inexpensive to make and a cute little shower gift.
This is a photo of a shower cake I baked and decorated for a baby shower this weekend. The colors of the napkins were all bright neon colors and McCormick food coloring now sells neon cake coloring. I chose a patchwork pattern, and marked my pattern on the top of the cake with a toothpick, before decorating.
I used only one Wilton tip to fill in the blocks-number 21(STAR tip). I first iced the sides in pale pink, then filled in the top blocks. This requires no top border. Around the base, I used the same tip for a border, piping 2 sides green and two blue. Around the border I piped stars in the different colors. For an added touch I used favor sized pink diaper pins, pink and purple buttons and two small rattlers.
The cake was half Funfetti mix and half fudge mix. This is done by tilting the pan about 3" to the side when pouring in the pan, and doing the same to the other side when adding another flavor of cake mix. They bake together nicely, and some love the middle slices which give you both flavors of cake. It required only one batch of icing. (1 bag Powdered sugar-1 cup Crisco (DO NOT SUBSTITUTE) and a VERY SMALL amount of water and a couple of drops of vanilla flavoring.) Colors for the blocks were mixed in separate bowls.
The guests and Mother-to-be loved it and it was a very easy cake to do. Decorated in 45 minutes or less. This size cake would sell for $30 or more at a bakery. It cost me $6 or less to bake and decorate. DO IT YOURSELF, Moms, it's always more fun!

This is the 14 inch cake I made for my daughter's baby shower! The shower is made with a candle and a fluted pastry tin. The bath tub and bubbles were made out of fondant.

My cousin made me a shower towel cake for my shower. Sadly she has passed away and I never knew how she made it. Does anyone know how? I need directions. She even had the plastic bride and groom statue on the very top. Thanks so much.
I made a three layer white towel cake for my daughter in law to be's bridal shower. I purchased nice quality white towels, and hand towels. I folded the towels and rolled them until they were the size I wanted. I whip stiched the ends together. My "cake "was three layers. I used pearl beading, and silk flowers for the decorations. For the topper, I found a bride dragging the groom. I found everything at Walmarts and the cardboard base of the "cake" came from Michaels. We recieved many compliments on the "cake". I was surprised how easy it was to make and how much "WOW" came out of it! Have fun!
