Lingerie Cake

I had so much fun making this lingerie inspired cake for my lifelong friend's Bachelorette Party & Lingerie Shower!  It was way bigger than necessary, but big cakes are just way more fun than small cakes!  

Almost all of the bustier cake ideas I found online were made with fondant, but I really wanted to try to make this all buttercream.  I'm so happy with how it turned out!

To make the cake I used my Wilton Sports Ball Pan and a 12x18 sheet pan.  I had planned to make just one sheet layer, but the first cake was a little thin, so I ended up layering 2 sheets together.  In total, I used 7 cake mixes to make this cake!!  I used my favorite boxed mix recipe for Vanilla Cake from TidyMom.com.  This makes a soft but slightly denser cake than using the recipe from the box... which makes carving a cake much easier!

Here's how I pieced it together....

After layering the sheet cakes and adding the "bra top," I carved the sides and top of the cake to look like a bustier.

And decorating.... it's funny how decorating the cake is the quickest and easiest part of all!  And most fun, of course!

    1. I used the Wilton Sports Ball Pan.... super easy to make! I've seen these pans at Michaels and Hobby Lobby. You can also buy online:

    1. Hi! I used Wilton tip #3 for the "lace" and the petal tip #104 for the ruffles. I used #12 for the bodice. Hope that helps! I love cakes made out of all buttercream... so much yummier than fondant!
