These baby block cakes were centerpieces for a baby shower. Each cake had a block with a different letter. Table cards with the guest name had a letter on them, which told them what table they were seated at.
I decorated the cakes to match the table runner that was made for each table.
The diaper pins were piped with royal icing and airbrushed silver. The babies and bottles were made out of fondant. The letters I made ahead of time with flood icing and placed on the cake the day of the event at the reception hall.
When ordering these cakes as a centerpiece you will have a ton of cake left over. As we know, an average of 8-10 people are seated per round table. An 8 inch bottom and 4 inch top were used. I can make smaller versions of these cakes for less cost and less servings.
The cakes were served on glass pedestal cake plates.
You can really impress your guests when they walk into your party with these alternative delicious centerpieces.
