Sprinkled With Love

Welcome to Sprinkled With Love! I started this blog in 2009 when I started taking Wilton cake decorating classes, as a way to share my decorated cakes with others. Since then my family & friends have kept me busy creating birthday cakes, wedding cakes & more. Sprinkled with love has grown to be so much more since then. Please take a look around to see what I have been up to, and remember, share some love and leave a comment!

Baby Shower Fondant Cake

I passed my Fondant and Gum Paste Class by Wilton! I recently had to complete my final cake and since I was hosting a baby shower just a few days later, I decided to decorate it with a baby theme of "As Cute as a Button."

Inside is a three layer cake. Each layer is a white and chocolate marble cake, with two layers of 'Whipped Cream Cream Cheese Frosting.' Check out the recipe below- it is SOOO good!! The fondant and gum paste used is made by Wilton. I have found a few recipes of Fondant that I hope to try soon. The cake was dirty iced using the Wilton Class Buttercream.

The buttons were lots of fun to make, and thanks to my instructor who gave me the idea to write BABY on top of the cake using the leftover little buttons. Every part of the cake is edible.

I have had so much fun taking cake decorating classes! I will be completing Course 3, dealing with Fondant and Tiered Cakes in March and April... I can't wait!

  1. Whipped Cream Cream Cheese Frosting, found at allrecipes.com

    1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
    1 cup white sugar
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
    (I substituted this with cool whip and it worked great)

    1. In a small bowl beat whipping cream until stiff peaks form; set aside.
    2. In a large bowl combine cream cheese, sugar, salt and vanilla. Beat until smooth, then fold in whipped cream.
