Baby Things Cake
The baby things cake was created for a going away party for a friend who was a church nursery worker. The cake was inspired by the baby clipart designs on the three-tiered "Oh-baby" cake featured in "The Whimsical Bakehouse" book by the Hansens.
The top and sides of the cake have numerous chocolate clip-art designs. I created the designs by printing out the image I want to create in chocolate -- backwards -- and then layering various colors of chocolate (upside-down) to create the designs. The trick is to remember that everything needs to go on backwards of what you might thing in order to get a flat front image. The back of the chocolate pieces are usually pretty bumpy.
