This was a cute cake for my very own Goddaughter’s baptism back in September. The design was based off a couple of different pictures her mummy sent me!
Making Fondant Blocks
These were tedious – I have made similar blocks using rice krispies, but this time I used fondant. I followed this youtube tutorial. However, I have no idea how you get the blocks completely smooth – I didn’t mind too much because I planned all along to place the pink squares on each face, however if you wanted plain sides this would be an issue. Cracks kept appearing – I imagine modelling chocolate may be a better alternative.
Making Icing Booties
I made the little shoes using a template I found on Pintrest. I cannot find the exact one I used, but it was similar to this one. You will need an exacto knife, tylose and a little bit of patience!
Airbrushing the Cake
I airbrushed the entire cake using a sheen airbrush colour – it gives it a pearl look and is a nice finishing touch!
