Want to make a baby shower cake they’ll remember forever? Customize your creation with 3 tips for the cutest personalized topper.
Here are three tips to add a personal touch to your next baby shower cake. I’ve started with a basic shoe that you can create easily from a baby shoe cutter tool kit. Tip 1: add a beautiful little bow.
You just cut out a strip of gumpaste. Working on one end at a time, fold the corners towards the bow and then away, this will create a crease and make the bow more realistic. Now glue it down and repeat with the other side. Use a small piece of gumpaste in the center to tie it all together.
Make the ribbon ends first and glue those on, then use chocolate or royal icing to anchor the bow. Easy and adorable!
Want to add some sparkle? That’s tip 2. Just brush over the shoes with luster dust.
I am using a clean, dry brush and a little bit of pearl dust.
Tip three is another easy add-on! We can create a button in a couple easy steps.
I am using a piping tip and a small round cutter. Roll out a bit of gumpaste and cut a disk with the round cutter. Use the large end of the piping tip to emboss an inside ring….like a real button. Don’t cut too deep though, we just want to leave a mark. Now use the small end of the piping tip to cut some button holes and glue it on.
Now that our topper option are complete, lets put it all together.
I cut out some fondant stars and clouds to create a dreamy pattern on the side of the cake…..and finished with a little piping.
Now that’s a cute cake!

WonderCream Frosting- perfect for decorating

I created this amazing decorating frosting on a whim when I only had a few ingredients. It has been my go-to recipe ever since.


1 16 oz. tub of store-bought white or vanilla frosting (do not used “whipped” frosting)
1 16 oz. tub (use tub of frosting as your measuring cup) Crisco® shortening (I only use Crisco®)
1 Pound (16 oz.) box of Powdered Sugar
¼ Cup warm water (you may not need to add water if needing a stiff frosting or using extracts)

Flavor Tip: You may add a teaspoon of any clear extract to give your frosting added flavor. Our favorites are vanilla, almond, champagne, lemon, and hazelnut.

Adding Real Butter: Feel free to add 1/2 Cup of softened butter to the mix to add more flavor.

How to Make:
Add tub of frosting and shortening into a mixing bowl. On low speed, beat frosting until mixed well. While mixer is still on slow add powdered sugar. Add small amount of warm water until mixture is smooth. Once all mixed together, beat for about one minute longer. Do not over mix. It will create air in the frosting, which makes frosting a smooth cake difficult. If frosting seems stiff, add some more warm water. If frosting seems too runny, add powdered sugar and mix.

Decorating a bathroom can be a long, hard experience. You want to make sure every detail of your room matches, including your shower curtain. The good news is they make novelty curtains that match any decor. So, no matter how you decide to decorate your bathroom, you are sure to find the perfect shower curtain.

Novelty curtains come in many different colors and designs. There are literally endless choices when it comes to the patterns and colors that are available to select from. The best way to pick your curtain is to first decorate your bathroom, then decide what shower curtain would match best. When you do this, you will make sure your shower curtain matches everything else you buy in the room, and you will also make sure that you get everything right the first time around, avoiding having to return stuff later.

There are many novelty shower curtains that have themes such as cartoon characters, tropical themes, or ocean themes. If you are designing a bathroom for children, characters are always a great option. Pick out your kid’s favorite character then design the bathroom around that character or show. Ocean and tropical themes are perfect for the bathroom, because of the water theme. You should easily be able to find many accessories that will match these themes, that will be perfect for your room.

You can find bath curtains that reflect almost any theme that you can think of. If for some reason you can’t find the novelty one that you are looking for, you can get plain colored bath curtains and decorate them yourself. In this way, you can make it as unique and creative as you are.

When you are decorating your bathroom you want to pick things that you will like for a long time. You don’t want to pick overly trendy items, that you will be sick of in a month. When you choose a shower curtain this gives you the chance to go wild. Shower curtains are easy and inexpensive to change, so if you get tired of the one you pick you can just change it. You can really go wild with your choices because they don’t need to be long term ones. You can change the curtains regularly, perhaps with every season, or with Christmas for example. This keeps things fresh and makes sure your bathroom is a topic of conversation for any guest that comes over.

Novelty curtains give you the perfect opportunity to show your personality. If your bath curtain doesn’t exactly match your room’s theme it’s okay as long as you love it. If your bathroom is more grown up, you can add a fun touch by having a novelty shower curtain. Have fun decorating and be sure to pick out a fun novelty bath curtain.
