This baby shower was a collaboration with the mother and the sister of the "mom to be." It was so fun working with them to make it a special day. They chose a neutral theme of ABC's and we went with primary colors and green for our color scheme. The above and below pictures are of the individual cakes I made for the shower. I got the idea from Martha Stewart.
online. Because I have a dairy allergy using cool whip and Toffuti Better Than Cream Cheese works just as well. The vegan cake was triple chocolate. Both were covered with ganache.
To make individual block cakes like this you bake a 9x13 cake in a pan without rounded corners. Doing this will help you keep more cake from being removed when shaping. To add a filling layer divide the cake in half horizontally, fill and put the top back on. Freeze or refrigerate until stiff. I froze it for around 5 minutes. Then divide the cake into squares using a ruler as your guide. My cakes were about an inch and a half square. Freeze them again and take one or two out at a time and coat with ganache on a wire rack with a jelly roll pan under to catch the excess ganache to re-use. Use a knife to spread it on to the cake evenly. After all of them are coated put them in the fridge and make your decorative frosting. In order for all the cakes to look similar I made the decorative frosting all vegan. I used Earth Balance vegan butter sticks. Have fun decorating. Another product I love is ENER G Egg Replacer, a great substitute for egg.
