Aly's Baby Shower

Posted by on Jun 28, 2010 in Baby, Gumpaste Figures & Flowers, My Cakes |

Back in June of 2007 I was asked to make a bridal shower cake for my wonderful cousin, Aly.  This cake pic has had a home at the top of the blog since day 1 and I get SO many comments on that cake.  Well now 3 yrs later we are celebrating the soon to be born baby to this wonderful couple! 🙂  So of course I was excited to do the baby shower cake!  I went off of the party ware they had purchased ~ see a pic below to compare 🙂  Cake is all buttercream except the birds and nest, which are gumpaste.

How did you make the nest?

I’m trying to remember what exactly I did since that was awhile ago 😉 I know that I used gumpaste and a clay extruder to make the thin pieces. I then overlapped them over either a small bowl or a small balloon that I had greased with a little shortening. I think I did the balloon for this one. I’ve done similar things over a bowl though as well. Then you basically let it dry and pop it off to finish drying.
