Instructions
Mold and put together baby shoes. Set aside.
Roll out white fondant to desired thickness and cover cake. Mix up royal icing to a stiff peak. Thin the icing slightly to a consistency that easily spreads, but is not runny. Divide icing into thirds and color.

To stripe the cake:
Place stencil A on top of the rolled fondant. Spread royal icing onto the stencil. Scrape the stencil so there is not any excess royal icing on the stencil. Hold onto the ends of the stencil A and lift straight up. Allow the first color to set completely. A thin layer of royal icing will typically set in 10-15 minutes. Humid areas may require additional time.
When the first color is set, place stencil B onto the fondant, lining up the design. Spread royal icing onto the stencil. Scrape the stencil so there is not any excess royal icing on the stencil. Hold onto the ends of the stencil B and lift straight up. Allow the second color to set completely.
When the second color is set, place stencil C onto the fondant, lining up the design. Spread royal icing onto the stencil. Scrape the stencil so there is not any excess royal icing on the stencil. Hold onto the ends of the stencil C and lift straight up.
**Note: Consistency of the royal icing is key for success. If the icing is seeping underneath the stencil, the royal icing is likely too thin. If the royal icing is rough, the icing may be too thick, or the icing may be setting up before the spreading is complete.

Roll lignt blue fondant very thin and cut the "boy" out using the cutter then use the pastry wheel to cut a rectangle measuring 5" x 2 1/4". Roll the green fondant very thin and cut a rectangle 4 3/4" x 2". Brush the back of the green rectangle with piping gel and attach to the blue rectangle. Roll the orange fondant very thin and cut the "it's a" letters and attach to the green rectangle with piping gel. Attach rectangle, "boy" and shoes to the cake using piping gel.
