Baby Showers!

Baby Shower Cake!!!!!!!

I made this cake for my friends Birthday Shower a few weeks ago and she really liked it

Ingredients

  • 1 6inch Cake
  • 1 Packet of white roll out icing
  • Blue food colouring
  • 500g butter icing
  • A jar of Hartley’s raspberry jam
  • A cot to go on top
Method

  1. Get a cake ready
  2. Make sure your butter icing is soft enough to spread!
     3. Lay all the ingredients out with your equipment

4. Slice the cake in half and spread butter icing on one half.

5. Now take the jar of jam and place it in the      microwave on 800w for 20 seconds or until soft.

     6. When you take it out the microwave be careful because it is hot! I didn’t know that the first time and
take my word for it “it hurts!!”

     7. Take the jam and spread it on the other half of the cake!

8. Swiftly flip the bottom on top of the cake so the base is now at the top and ice it using the roll out icing.

9. After that take the left over icing and the blue food colouring and dye the icing a baby blue. Now using cutters cut out A BOY and place it on the cake

    10.then place the cot in the middle and press down – not too hard of you’ll put a dent in the cake.

11. Mold a cat and some building blocks out of the blue icing and place on the cake.

    12. Then take the blue icing and cut out stars. hearts, circles and triangles then put them around the edge of the cake. (stick on with water)

Organized mess!!

12 things to decorate on a rainy day like this!
Ingredients
  • 12 cup cakes
  • Butter icing
  • tube icing things
  • Hundreds and Thousands (sprinkles)
Method
  1. Spread the butter icing onto all the cup cakes evenly with a palette knife (if the icing is sticking to the knife, get some boiling/hot water in a mug and dip the knife in before spreading).
  2. Draw your pattern/ design with the icing tubes on to your cakes.
  3. Then one by one place them on a plate and sprinkle the hundreds and thousands on top.
  4. Then carefully pickup the cup cake and turn ti sideways to shake off any extra sprinkles.
  5. You may only want half the design sprinkled! if so tube half the pattern and sprinkle then tube the rest.
That’s it all done and any unused sprinkles you can put back in the container from the plate! yum xox

  5. Remove from oven (carefully -do not plonk down) place the cake tin gently on a heat proof surface and use a cake tester to check if it is ready. If not then put back in the oven for a few more minutes and check again until done and leave to cool for 10-20 minutes.
