STEP 1: PREPARE CAKE AND BUTTERCREAM
Grease and flour your pan and bake the cake according to your box mix or our Vanilla Cake Recipe instructions. Once cooled, wrap your cake in plastic wrap and refrigerate for a few hours to chill in order to make icing it easier. Prepare your 1 1/2 batch of Brenda's Bakery Buttercream. Tint 1/3 of your buttercream light blue.
STEP 2: CRUMBCOAT AND PIPE TEXTURE
Crumb coat your cake and use a toothpick to draw out a triangle on the chest and a line where the waist band will go so you'll know where to pipe later. Fill your piping bags and fit them with #8 piping tips.
Pipe icing in the triangle, leg holes and arm holes and use a spatula to smooth these areas out.
Pipe rows of dots on the rest of the cake to create the texture. These don't have to be in perfect rows, you're just trying to add a knitted look to the cake.Chill your cake while your move on to the next few steps.
STEP 3: ADD FONDANT ACCENTS TO FINISH
Roll out ropes of red fondant and line the leg holes and the chest triangle of the onesie.
Then, roll out some dark blue fondant with a rolling pin, about 1/4" thick and cut two large triangle for the collar. You can use a ruler to measure how long you need the collar to be (although we just eye balled it). Most importantly, make sure your triangles match each other so they don't look lopsided. Use the first triangle as a template on the fondant to cut the second triangle out so they match.
Roll a red ball for the knot and press it into the cake. Then, cut out two football shapes from some rolled red fondant for the bow tails. Pinch the ends of the bow tails before adding to the cake to give them character.
Roll two little balls and flatten them for the buttons. Use a toothpick to make 4 holes in the buttons and then attach them to the belt with a dab of water.
To complete this cake, pipe a white line of buttercream on the edge of the collar with a #3 piping tip (although I think this is totally optional).
Ahoy! This cake is done! Wow...time to watch your guests oooh and ahhh.
