Cute as a button

This cake was for a baby shower.  Beth couldn’t decide between a ruffle cake and a button theme.  I suggested…why not both?  Beth agreed and this is what I came up with.


The cake is a 6” round, the ruffles are buttercream and the buttons are fondant.  I used the Wilton Fondant and Gum Paste Silicone Mold to make the buttons, it was very easy to use.

The cupcakes each have a 1M buttercream swirl and a button topper.  The cupcake flavors were vanilla with raspberry filling and chocolate with peanut butter filling.

The cupcake tower was a recent purchase I splurged on. You can find it at The Cupcake Tower. It’s a really great product, I started with the tiny size and I’ll be able to add more layers if I need to.  It comes apart and stores flat which is awesome, because I’m running out of room for my cake supplies!
