Bless Grace – Baby Girl Cake

Elvis Elvis

A perfect baby girl cake handmade by Tammy Q. from Lexington, SC. She’ll tell you how she did it:

This is a pound cake baked in an 8x8x2 inch square. It was frozen and carved into a pillow shape. I iced it in buttercream and then covered it with white fondant. I added fondant details, and buttercream roses and vines.

The baby is all fondant as is the pacifier and bottle. All handmade.
