    Place blue layer, top side down, on plate. Spread 1/3 cup frosting on blue layer almost to edge. Place white layer, top side down, on frosted layer. Spread 1/3 cup frosting on white layer almost to edge. Place pink layer, top side up, on frosted layer. Frost side and top of cake with remaining frosting. Store loosely covered.

  • Decorate your cake! Miniature dolls, baby rattles and pacifiers make fun and practical decorations.
