The baby carriage cake is a popular item. Everyone seems to enjoy the look of this cake. I however always feel that I could be doing it better. I finally feel that I got the wheels right and with a little bit of practice with my piping technique they will be completely round. I feel that I need to make the cradle part smaller so the handle and the umbrella part could be bigger or at least more proportionate to the rest of the carriage. I used 6 inch round cakes for the wheels. The other part of the cake is pound cake. Pound cake for me is much easier to shape than layer cake.
In this picture the customer wanted a tie dyed pattern. I find airbrushing this pattern particularly hard to do on cakes as it never seems to turn out exactly the way I imagined it will. This cake in particular I decided that if I airbrushed in a circular w pattern around the cake it would give me the effect I was looking for. It kinda did however I realized that next time I should probably layer the colors differently so the effect could be better. Also next time I need to leave room for a little white to show through on my cake as this is how I always remembered tie dyed shirts to be.
