Cake submitted by Hannah from Kansas City, Missouri
This pregnant belly cake was for a baby shower party. It was the second cake I made so I decided to focus on decorating the cake and not baking. I used store bought German chocolate for the belly part and red velvet for the breasts.
I used a Wilton soccer ball mold for the belly cake and I used one and a half boxes of mix because one didn't fill it enough to make it look real, at least not in my mind. I used small Wilton fluted pans for the breasts and they ended up being the perfect size, just the way I wanted them.
I made the cakes 3 days before. I needed the cake for a baby shower and let it cool overnight. I made the buttercream icing the next day and iced all three pieces and let it set overnight again. The last day I colored the green and pink fondant. And then I cut out all the circles and the ribbon for decorating. I positioned the cakes to where I wanted them.
Next I covered them with the green fondant, which I molded around the cake until I got it just the way I wanted it. After that I cut around the edges with a pizza cutter (which is very handy). Then I placed the polka dots all around, and actually had to work with the ribbon for a while since this was all pretty new to me but it finally worked out.
The weather was really hot and the cake was sweating the whole way to the shower but it ended up giving it a really great shine. The cake was a huge hit and the guests at the baby shower really did enjoy it!
