    I have been making baby block petit fours for baby showers for years. They are so versatile...you can make a variety of cakes, use different flavored fillings, are appropriate for both baby girls

    Just thought you should know about this awful company that is using photos from different websites and claiming them as their own work. This exact photo is being used: http://www.tiofiesta.com/babyshowers.html

    VEAKESGURL: 60 GUESTS. USING THE 13X9 CAKE PAN, IT'LL SERVES 45 PER PERSON. TO CUT PERFECTLY, To cut square cakes, move in 2 inches from the outer edge and top to bottom. Then slice approximately 1 1/2 inch pieces of cake. Now move in another 2 inches and slice again until the entire cake is cut. GOOD LUCK... BE PATIENT. DO THIS TWO DAYS BEFORE THE PARTY AND MAKE ROOM IN THE REFRIGERATOR. TO BUY THE CAKE BOX, GOES TO WILTON.COM OR GO TO WALMART OR MICHEAL'S FOR THE CAKE'S CARDBOARD PLATE

    For the baby block cake, how many days you can do it in advanse and where you can store it?
    thank you

    You also asked the question how many it would feed;well that would depend on how big of a sheet cake you make or buy.

  • nt2swt67 27 Jun, 2008

    You can buy foundant buy the buckets in the stores now ready to use and NO royal icing is not the same thing as regular icing; royal icing ts the icing that they use on Gingerbread houses to hold them together so it gets very hard generally and is made with egg whites. Good Luck!!

  • ladypuentes 22 Jun, 2008

    Does anyone know if its ok to replace the white sheet cake with a store bought one? How about the fondant? do you know if they sell it in stores ready to use? and lastly is royal icing the same as regular icing???

    I love this idea, I have to get this cake made.... If anyone is in the Atlanta area and has the time to make this cake for me, I would be happy to pay for your time!

    The shower is in September and I must have this cake! Please contact me at nbabymakes3@yahoo.com!

    Use a royal icing recipe that calls for powdered meringue instead.

  • JulieW 29 Nov, 2007

    I'm concerned... I want to make this cake for a baby shower, yet the royal icing is made with egg whites which is not to be consumed by pregnant women or children. Is there an alternative?
