  So I've been practicing really hard these last few weeks with fondant. I am trying to make a Pink and Brown themed baby shower cake at the end of may for my friends baby shower. These are my two attempts  Undecided

Let me just say, the cake boss, and ace of cakes make it look super easy. And I am having difficulty with the center. I was trying to decorate with strips of different colored fondant, but when they connect in the middle I go brain dead. Any suggestions? For the baby shower cake I am making a two teir, fondant cake. I just dont know what to put in the middle where the fondant connects, so it doesnt look so tacky ( i.e. my glob of frosting)

I also dinked around with different colors in the piping bag. I was trying to get rainbow frosting.

That's really impressive. I've dabbled in cake decorating but not using fondant- I'm a bit intimidated. What a lucky friend you have. For the center where all the fondant meets perhaps using a figurine of some sort or one of those fancy chocolate pieces would work?

I like the rainbow frosting you made, especially the on in the middle on the far right side. Very pretty. Good luck!

Have a grooving great day!

I like both the rainbow frosting cupcakes (in the middle.)

In the middle, how about a flower? OR, you can make a circle and put the baby's initial in the middle of the circle. Hope that makes sense!

I'm loving the multicoloured frosting!!  So pretty!

As for the center...what about a fondant bow?   Lemme find a picture.......

I second the idea for a figurine of some sort!

Craft stores usually carry silver baby booties, etc as favors.

Or, you could pick up a fancy piped cookie from a bakery with the baby's or mama's initial in it. Or, hey, any cookie would do. Chocolate or white chocolate dipped tuille cookies, yum!

Your fondant looks great! Keep it up!

I think your fondant work looks great for your first few attempts! I too am starting to dabble in caking decorating and will be making a two tier cake for a friends baby shower this year. I hope my first attempt looks that good! Great Job! Wink

This is totally cute i love it, and for the middle maybe you could put like design like a figuring kind of thing.
