How to Make an Adorable Fondant Baby Animals Cake

Animal Baby Shower Cakes For Boys: Submitted By Reader – Angela

I made a cream cheese pound cake first so I would have a solid base to support the fondant and the animals.

I then used store bought fondant on part of the cake in the interest of saving some time.

And homemade marshmallow fondant on the other parts, like the animals and the weaving on the bottom layer.

The bottom layer is a 10″ x 10″ x 2″ square cake, and the top layer is a 6″ x 3″ round cake.

I like the contrast of using 2 different shaped cakes. It’s as if the top round cake is sitting on a platform.

I covered the bottom square cake in white marshmallow fondant and then wove lots of pastel colored strips in a basket weave over the white fondant.

After covering the top layer with baby blue fondant, I placed it on top of my bottom layer and added hand rolled balls that I made by piecing together the leftover pieces from the basket weaving.

I just mixed it a little to give it a marbled look.

The top layer ended up covering most of the weaving which took about an hour to do.

I didn’t think about it enough to know that if I put a 6″ circle on top of a four inch square I would only have 4″ of the bottom layer showing.

It was originally going to be a “Noah’s Ark” theme but I ran out of time to duplicate the animals I made a day or two before with fondant and left to dry.

The baby’s name is on flat square block pieces that I made with gum paste and then attached them to silver wire at different heights in front of the ark figure.

This is only the fourth fondant cake I’ve made and out of all of them, this baby animals cake is my favorite!

Baby Boy Animal Cake Instructions

Cake Submitted By A Reader:

This baby boy animal cake is my first fondant cake!

I used my 16 in round cake pan for the bottom layer and an 8 in round for the top layer.

I bought some fondant and rolled it out. Then I put it on top of both layers separately.

The fondant was placed under the sides of the cakes and I placed candy dowels in the bottom layer of the cake to hold the top layer.

I made my cut out animals with mini cookie cutters and my son helped make the balls around the outer edges.

Using a paintbrush, I lightly brushed water on each fondant cutout and ball and placed them on the cake. This helped them adhere to the cake a little easier.

I brushed the cake with edible shimmer dust (disco dust) and used a tapestry needle to “punch” holes in each animal to give them a sewn look! Everyone loved it!

I impressed myself with the fondant!
It’s really easy to use!

Oh, and the baby above is also made with fondant! I did some internet research on what I wanted it to look like.

Animal Animal and Barn Baby Shower Cake

This cute Baby McDonald Farm Animal Cake was submitted by Trisha from Sherwood, AR. Below are her instructions for making the cake:

Farm Animal Baby Shower Cake Instructions:

  • About 4 days ahead of time we made the fondant farm animals. I found a package from Michaels to make the farm animals in the right colors and quantities that you will need.
  • About 2 days ahead of time, we made the Gingerbread barn. My husband made a pattern for the barn out of paper. I used Gingerbread cookie mix from a box, rolled it out, and cut out pieces with a pizza cutter.
  • We also cut the windows and window shutters before baking. We let it set for a day and then glued the pieces together with Royal Icing.
  • The shingles are made from Graham crackers 100 calorie packs and glued on with Royal icing.
  • The fence and food trough are made of pretzel sticks and Royal icing.
  • The straw is shredded wheat.
  • The herb is coconut mixed with a few drops of green food coloring.
  • The dirt is crushed graham crackers.
  • I made two 9×13 cakes, crumb coated, and iced them. Then we put all the parts where we want them. We iced the barn after placing it on the cake with the straight side of a #47 icing tip to look like wooden slats on a real barn. Then we cut the barn with white icing.

Below are some detailed pictures of this cute cake!
