For a co-worker’s baby shower, I decided to make a crib cake. The cake itself is pretty easy since I used 9×13 baking pans, but what was hard, was piping melted dark chocolate to create the crib posts. I had to make the posts pretty thick so that it wouldn’t break easily with handling and while standing up. Since I had a hard time trying to make the posts smooth and straight (my hands aren’t steady enough to draw nice straight lines quickly) I decided to intentionally wiggle my wrist while piping the chocolate. If you notice, the crib posts look like it’s rattan. If you notice, most, if not all, cribs are not made out of rattan. Oh well, it gave it a more interesting texture.
I decided to decorate in pinks, browns, and heart shapes since the baby was due close to Valentines day.
