Somehow last week I managed the impossible with the help of my husband and my mom to make both of my sisters wedding cakes, some cupcakes and twin baby shower cake for a co-worker. The boy cake was chocolate and the girl cake was vanilla.
I used a 12x12inch pan and drew a picture on a piece of butcher paper and used that as the template for the shape. I also cut the leg holes and arm holes so they would be 1/2 as high as the rest of the cake. The frosting was a vanilla french buttercream. I didn't get to spend a ton of time on it since I had to do other cakes and watch my daughter, work, etc.
