We are excited to share a sweet and simple free cake video tutorial featuring a girl on a swing!
Look how cute!…
I just love the simplicity of this cake, as well as the dimension and texture. It would be perfect for young birthdays, and is easily achievable no matter what your skill level of cake decorating!
I think that it would make an adorable birthday cake, and the child in the swing could be patterned after the birthday girl or boy of honor. You could even change to a tire swing if you’d like!
If you need a baby shower cake idea, this cake would work well for that too! Just substitute the little girl for a sweet teddy bear or other animal. The options are endless! Oh, how I love a cute cake design.
We hope that you enjoy the video!
For this tutorial, we used a 6 inch double barrel cake (four stacked cake layers with a cardboard cake circle halfway up, with 4 bubble tea straws for support beneath). We frosted the cake with our Fluffy Vanilla Buttercream frosting recipe.
Coloring Gels: We used Americolor Deep Pink, Chocolate Brown, Wilton Leaf Green, Americolor Copper (skin), Americolor Ivory (rope), Americolor Sky Blue, Americolor Lemon Yellow
fondant (we kneaded in a little tylose powder for faster drying)
Coloring Pens: We used a black foodwriter pen for the eyes, and pink for the mouth.
Piping Tips: We used a Tip 1 for the hair, Tip 6 for the tree, Tip 352 for leaves, Tip 233 for grass, and tip 2 and 3 for miscellaneous flowers and stems, etc. (If you don’t have these exact tips, just go with something of a similar size.)
Extruder- We used our extruder to create our fondant rope for the swing. If you do not have an extruder, you can just roll your fondant very thinly by hand.
