Baby Bottom Cake

by Missy Shaffer
(Bluff City, TN USA)

This baby bottom cake was my first working with Rice Krispie Treats ("RKT") and could not believe what you could do with a childhood treat. I started by baking a classic white cake in the Wilton Soccer Ball pan. After cooling I placed the cake on a 10" cake circle and iced. Then covered in white fondant and set aside.

To make the feet: I took 2 large size store-bought RKT and made two kidney shapes approximately 2" long to form the feet and laid them to the side. Be sure and save your RKT scraps because they can be used to fill in where needed. Tint fondant in the desired skin tone and roll out very thick so that you can apply the detailed creases.

Cover the RKT and start adding the little creases of the feet. Yes, I did look at my own for an example! Now take left over tinted fondant and roll out the little toes. Once rolled out brush the ends with water and attach to the foot. It is best to prop your foot up at an angle to give the toes a natural position when placing on the baby bottom cake. Make sure toes are placed in the right direction.

To make the legs: Take an additional 2 RKT and form the legs in a curved shape and slightly taper and flatten on one end. Hold legs up to the cake to see how to form correctly. Once you have your form cover in thick fondant and add desired creases.

Once feet and legs are set up start arranging the cake by adding the legs first. Brush the legs with water and apply to side of the cake. Now apply the cute little feet by positioning in a natural looking pose. While this is drying and setting up, I tinted the fondant to make the little dress. Roll out the desired color at about 1/4" and drape over baby bottom leaving bottom half exposed to show as a diaper. Be sure to cover the tops of the legs so you have a natural look. After draping the fondant take a cutter and trim edges to form a rounded look that resembles a little dress.

To add the ruffles on the diaper, take white fondant and cut into a strips. Fold like an accordion and apply to cake after brushing back with water. To complete the cake: I added molded ribbon, trim and flowers to replicate a pattern of a dress. You may leave the cake as is because it is simply adorable or add as a topper to a tiered cake.

Baby Bum Cake NEW
by: Becky

That is the best baby bum cake I have seen. You did a great job at really making it look natural. I am going to try to make one - I hope it turns out half as good as yours.

WONDERFUL Cake!!
by: Debbie

This was our daughter-in-laws baby shower cake for our Granddaughter Aubrey. When Missy sent me a picture of the cake I was so excited, but when she actually delivered the cake I was speechless,it was so life like and precious. Missy has a wonderful talent and always puts that extra touch of love into each and every one of her cakes. Everyone at the shower was all awwws and ohhhs and then when we cut the cake everybody just couldnt get enough,it was DELICIOUS!She made the cake so special by making the top layer pink strawberry(since we were having a baby girl)and Ohhhh the butter almond 2nd layer was so moist and wonderful too!! I want to say a Very Special THANK YOU MISSY for helping to make Aubrey Lynns baby shower extra special.Keep the votes coming cause she deserves it
