This cake is a good place to start if you’ve never made a multi-tiered cake or worked with fondant before. The decorations are fairly simple, which lets you focus on the basic techniques of stacking the tiers and creating a smooth fondant finish. The design was inspired by vintage hobnail glass and the soft, snuggly, nubby chenille blankets that can be found tucked into a newborn’s crib—perfect for a baby shower. Or stick with an all-white palette to turn it into a simple wedding cake, or use deeper or brighter colors for a sweet birthday cake.
