A onesie baby cake

A friend of mine is having a baby…girl!  So I opted to bake some desserts for her baby shower over the weekend.  In addition to some delicious cream cheese coffee bread, and some rich, decadent chocolate toffee bars, I decided to make something unique and fun that really screamed….IT’S A GIRL!!

Taking some inspiration from the internet, I finally landed on this onesie-shaped cake.


CUTE!  Well, Micah’s initial response was, “It’s furry.”

Despite my “furry” onesie cake – it was well-appreciated by the momma-to-be. 

However, some were a little confused by what it was.  Apparently, it also resembles some kind of creature when viewed upside-down.


Hmm…an earless bunny rabbit perhaps?

This cake was super easy to make. 

  • I chose the semi-homemade way and used two boxed cake mixes (white cake dyed pink with food coloring) and cooked them in a 9×13 pan. 
  • After cooling, I laid one cake on top of the other with a sourcream, sugar, and coconut filling between the layers. 
  • Micah sketched out a onesie for me on paper and helped me cut the cake accordingly. 
  • I then made 7-minute frosting – and dyed it pink too. 
  • Frost the cake, and then put on the shredded coconut (also dyed pink)
  • I added a heart-shaped cookie (a shortbread cookie I cut into a heart) to add a small girly touch.  And I also used some pink Mike and Ike candies to create the buttons.
  • FYI: If I hadn’t gone with the coconut on top – I think it would have been very clear to everyone that it was a onesie.  Smile
