If you follow me on Instagram you may have already seen this cake last Friday. If you didn’t know, last week Sweet Stamp released 4 new letter sets and I was lucky enough to get a little sneak peak. For their launch I created this cute sleeping moon cake to celebrate the release and show you the new sets and what they look like on a cake.
I am so excited that this week I am sharing the full step by step video tutorial showing how I made this cute sleeping moon, night sky cake. You can watch the tutorial below!

Ok so back to the tutorial! Click below to watch step by step how I made this cake ⇩
This is such a cute cake and would be perfect for a baby shower or first birthday. I used the baby blue fondant by The Sugarpaste to cover the cake. Even though I wanted it to look like a night sky I didn’t want to go too dark with the fondant as I wanted to keep that cute baby theme.
Apart from the text, I think the moon is my favourite part of this cake. I used a scrunched up piece of tin foil, my ball tool and the mini texture tools by Sweet Stamp to add in the little craters around the moon. When I added shadow around the edge using edible dust and painted on the sleeping eyes it really came to life. This would also be perfect for a space theme cake too (minus the sleeping eyes.
New Sweet Stamp Letter Sets
If you’ve followed me for a while you’ll probably know what a fan of the Sweet Stamp letter sets I am. They make it so easy to add text onto your cakes, boards and cupcakes and they come in so many different fonts and themes too. The four new sets are all so different but work really well together too.
On the front of my cake I added the ‘Dream Big Little One’ text using the new smaller sets from their modern collection. For the dream big I used the ‘Trendy’ set and for the text below I used ‘Timeless’. I stamped the 2 lines separately so I could have the ‘g’ from the top line coming over the top of the text below. This gave such a modern feel to the cake and I love how it looked.
For the text on the board I used the 2 larger sets from their new neon collection. For the word Baby I used the new green ‘Glow’ set. This is a simple font design but would be perfect for any theme of cake. For the name I used the new ‘Sweetie’ Set. This is a more elaborate, calligraphy themed set and looks so pretty.
I also love that these sets all come with upper case letters, lower case letters, numbers and some punctuation making the possibilities endless of text you can add.
In the tutorial you can also see me use 2 different techniques to paint the lettering. For the text on the front I painted this by hand, mixing lustre dust with dipping solution to create an edible paint. But on the board I used the perfect pour bottles, which allow you to drip edible paint into the embossed letters, filling in the spaces.
This is quite a simple cake design, finished off with some cut out cloud shapes around the bottom and some star shaped sprinkles added to the side, but I love how sweet and cute the end result is. By adding the text onto the front it really gave the cake a narrative.
I really hope you enjoyed the tutorial and will be able to use some of the techniques on your own cakes.
