When it comes to adorable cakes, there are none more adorable than baby cakes and christening cakes. And our feature cake above by Louise Jackson Cake Design captures this perfectly.
What makes this baby model so life-like is the expert colouring applied, as well as the beautifully crafted sugar rose the baby is cradled in.
To recreate this baby model, First Impressions have a wonderful sleeping baby mold available here and you’ll find an excellent tutorial here from Happy Cakes by Renee on colouring/adding depth and skin tone to the model: baby model tutorial.
A close second when it comes to the cutest ever baby cake themes, is a little boy or girl cake topper holding their new born brother or sister. And Diletta Contaldo has designed a fabulous take on this theme above in baby blue.
Mischevious little babies who look like they’re up to something or could be any minute are another favourite, with two precious little examples below by boy model baby cake topper by Sharon Wee Creations (left) and the Kleine Zuckerfee blog (right).
