Pregnant Belly Cake

This is a baby shower cake I did for my cousin's daughter. Her name is Bryttanie and she now has two little boys, Jordan and Teegan. I had a lot of fun with this one.

I used the Tappit Funky Alphabet set for the letters and dusted them with brown petal dust. There is definitely a trick to using these...you have to let the gumpaste dry out a little before attempting to cut them.

Here are the belly and boobs before fondant. I used the soccer ball pan and the pan with four cone shaped cavities...I forget the name but both are Wilton pans.

I used a wilton mold for the bow and I made it way too big originally. I ended up removing the two loops on the under side because it fit better that way. Here is the lettering all finished.

I used buttercream on the cake and fondant for the dress. I was pretty happy with my icing job on the base of the cake.
