No, I’m not pregnant. But someone is!

I modeled my friend’s baby-shower stork cake after a button from Party City.


Below, with the button:

For the time being, I’d much rather make some of these babies:

Who wants a whining, crying thing when you can have chocolate? I’m kidding. I really do love babies (and not only the chocolate ones). I’m just not ready for my own quite yet!

    Katie you almost gave me a heart attack! Thank goodness the only baby you’ve got at the moment is made of fudge! 😉 That cake looks awesome! Isn’t fondant the best? I love to work with it, you can make so many things that not only look great but taste delicious too.

  2. Whit says

    lol, all my friends are running off and marrying and having kids too. What?!?! I just want to veg out and eat chocolate. What’s the rush? 😉

  3. Sophia says

    It definitely got my attention, I am so out $5. I feel the same way, all my friends are either married, getting married, have kids or a kid is on the way. Its crazy, I feel too young to have kids, but not to young for fudge babies! Lol. Never to young for those.

  4. Daria @ Daria Can Cook says

    Haha definitely an attention-grabbing title! That cake is beautiful, and so are the fudge babies! 🙂

  5. Diana (Soap & Chocolate) says

    Your cake skills are off the hook! I feel like I’ve told this story a billion times, but I have to laugh at myself. I baked a sheet cake for a friend’s birthday one time and armed myself with a few colors of frosting tubes, but when I actually went to freehand-decorate it, I could tell it would come out horrible so I chickened out and just wrote “CAKE” on the top using one color of icing. It got a laugh, if not decoration praise. 😉

    Fudge babies are definitely one thing I wouldn’t mind being pregnant with! HAHA…

  6. Scorpionne says

    wow you are very talented with the cake. It looks very good. My birthday is coming and I’m thinking of doing a birthday cake but something original 🙂 Last year, my boyfriend bought me a Dora birthday cake and I bought him Diego birthday cake LOL

    I’ll probably do your fudge babies soon. I printed the recipe last week and you kept showing them to us. It’s teasing us LOL

  7. Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) says

    My heart skipped a million beats at your subject line….LOL

    Fudge babies in the mail….well hot diggity, maybe I’ll get lucky 🙂

    Your presentation of them looks good enough to open your own candy store…I hear See’s or Godiva needs help repackaging their candies and they are calling you!


  8. Anonymous says

    I’ve tried making the fudge babies twice now (once even before you posted this, but I thought I’d try again cause yours looked so good). Mine never seem to stick together because they’re too dry and crumbly or something, but in the pictures yours always look different. I’m I forgetting to add something other than dates, cocoa, vanilla, and walnuts?

  9. Vegyogini says

    Hahahaha! Congratulations to your friends…they are so lucky to have a shower cake that you baked just for them! It’s quite adorable.

    Not to mention your lucky readers getting fudgie babies…wow! Lucky them. I hope I get a chance to make my own soon. Maybe this weekend…

    Hi Anonymous,
    I’m really sorry they haven’t worked for you :(.
    I don’t know if you saw my Fudge Baby FAQ post:

    Can you tell me what kind of dates you’re using? And are you using the same proportions of nuts and dates that the recipe calls for? I’m trying to figure out what could be going on, since it always works for me. Hopefully we can figure this out, because the little guys taste so good!!


  11. Heather Eats Almond Butter says

    Haven’t made any Fudge Babies yet, but I sure enjoyed eating some. 🙂 Thanks again Katie. They lasted less than 48 hours!

    This post made me laugh, and the cake you made for your friend is beautiful!

  12. Katharina says

    Those Fudge Babies look SOOOO GOOD!!! Especially the ones with the coconut oh my gosh. And your cake! You have got serious talent girl. No wonder people to come to you for baked goods 😉

  13. Jenny says

    aw defintely had my hopes up for some little chocolate covered babies 🙂 but kind of relieved you don’t have a bun in the oven.. congrats to your friend!! 🙂

  14. gina (fitnessista) says

    i was like “whaaaaaat?!”
    catchy 😀
    i love the cake you made– you truly are an artist. so impressive and i’m still waiting for you to open that cupcake and cake shop 🙂
    still need to make me some fudge babies 😀
    have a great night!

  15. BroccoliHut says

    I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again–you are an art-eest! I always love how vibrant your decorated baked goods are.

  16. CaSaundra says

    Your right, that post title did get my attention!! 😛

    Totally looove that cake, I made a baby shower cake quite a few months ago! They are one of my favorite themed cakes to make.

  17. Damjana says

    As I don’t have the oven, these fudge babies seem to be a great idea to get healthy cookies/truffles. I bought the two ingredients for the cashew cookie lärabar version – will be on my to-do-list soon 🙂
    Nice to see so many people have already made the fudge in this short time! Fudge baby mania rules;)

  18. Brooke says

    Not only did I LOVE them, but I took them home over the weekend and my family really enjoyed them too. I think I’m going to make another batch tonight. They didn’t last nearly as long as I thought they would. 🙂

  19. ohhmay says

    I cant wait to try the recipe for the fudge babies… It looks so decadent!! Thank you for the warning about the clif nectars… I had to go stock up!
    & your work on that cake is beautifull!!

  20. Marianne says

    Good job on that cake! You have some mad fondant skillz. I’ve never worked with the stuff myself, but should maybe try it out one day. I guess I’d need a really special occasion to make a cake for though 😉
