Amaze me August #54 - Pregnant Bella Cake Tutorial

Welcome to the 54th edition of:

Today I am sharing with you another great cake decorating tutorial. This was first shared over at my good friend Ami's blog ALILILLY

This past week I did some things that were out of the ordinary for me, but really interesting to say the least. I spoke my mind more than usual on a few of those posts, and while I didn't get AS much of a reaction as I'd thought, it left me wondering if anyone even read it, lol. 
Totally go check out these posts if you get a chance, and let me know what you think!
LMM  and a not so nice anonymous comment got me thinking

I hope you enjoy checking those posts out, please let me know what you think. 
Now enjoy this great tutorial, and then make sure to link up to the party.
Thanks everyone!!
Pregnant Belly Cake Tutorial

At this point I didn't glue anything down yet. It still needed to be easily transferred to the finished cake. Once you have it on the cake , and are happy with the placement of everything, you just need to dab a little water to make everything stick, like glue. Be careful not to add too much, or else the fondant will slide. 

Also you will notice everything is really powdery at this stage. You need to keep everything dusted well, so it doesn't stick, but once you are finished assembling the cake, you can steam the fondant, or use a paintbrush to paint it with water (slightly) and this will take care of all that powder, along with making everything shine.

Do you want to see the finished cake?
It is so pretty, I really love the way it turned out.
Make sure to stop by and take a look.

  1. Bella that cake is so very very cute...thanks for sharing I really enjoyed it. I am not planning on any more kids but if I know someone having a baby I will show them your cake. Good job.

  2. I was stunned by the post title "Pregnant Bella Cake"and after reading the post, i realized it was a typo and it indeed is "Pregnant BELLY Cake", for one moment though i thought you are pregnant: LOL :)

    Nice design, kudos to you!

  3. OK, don't laugh but I also read this post as "Pregnant Bella Cake" and...I'm so embarrassed to admit my Twilight knowledge but I thought it was Bella from Twilight and was expecting this grody looking cake for a huge Twilight fan! AHHH, ok I've shamed myself enough for one comment. LoL

  4. oh my Bella! Love it love it love it! That's so sweeeeet (of course!) and you're such an artist with fondant!

  5. WOW, that turned out great! I have always wanted to try my hand at fondant, but never have. Might just have to give it a try Ü

I did read what you wrote on LMM, I had never seen her before but I went to her blog and she actually pretty honest, revealing her pulling and all. I dont allow anonymous comments. Haters gonna hate!

In my spare time I enjoy cooking, and baking. In fact my mother and I have been making cakes for over 30 years. I also love gardening, traveling, and all things crafty. I struggle daily to keep my like organized, along with my never ending battle to keep the house clean. I adore my three kids MOST of the time, and can usually be found doing the mom thing from morning till night. I try to catch a few mommy moments, but those are hard to find in this wonderful life of mine. I am blessed and happy, and am thrilled you stopped by today :)
