Baby Shower Cake and Swim Team Cake

It was a busy week here at Baker's Cakes! I had an order for a Baby Shower Cake for one of our running friends who is expecting her first baby. And the Swim Team ordered a cake for their banquet, to serve 200!!!

This cake was originally inspired by a beautiful cake by Pink Cake Box. The bottom layer of the cake is Baker's Cakes Signature Chocolate cake with Double Chocolate Cream Cheese Buttercream Frosting, topped with Chocolate Fondant. The top layer of the cake is Lemon Cake filled with Lemon Curd, and frosted with Lemon Buttercream Frosting, topped with fondant. The sugar paste cake topper was created to match the bear on the baby shower invitations.

The Swim Team Cake was a blast to make!

The Woodcroft Pool has just been begging to have a cake made to resemble it! The slide tower and shallow end of the pool were Buttermilk Layer Cake with Buttercream Frosting. The swim lanes were Baker's Cakes Signature Chocolate Cake with Buttercream frosting. The coaches were sculpted out of sugar paste and the pool details were created with fondant.

The Woodcroft Whirlwind coaches led the team to a third place finish overall at DSSL Championships!


  1. you have been especially busy!
    the baby shower cake is absolutely gorgeous. I'm sure the coaches loved their figures, soo cute :)

  2. Great cakes! That swim cake is huge - must've fed lots of swimmers! Love the flip-flops

  3. That is awesome!! Great job friend!

  4. Awesome job on both cakes - but that pool cake is so very cool!

  5. Here the tutorial that I used for assistance with this project.


    I did have to end up free handing the drawing because I thought it printed out a bit too small for the shoe size I wanted. Also, my husband made the stand that supported it out of wood...which helped.
