So I am making a King Cake this weekend and I wanted to know where I could buy a plastic baby to put in the cake. I know you can use a bean but I figure if anyone would know where to locate this item you all would.

    Try any store that sells party and/or cake decorating supplies -- they usually have little plastic babies to top cakes or cupcakes for baby showers.

      I got one at Display and Costume on Roosevelt (several years ago, but these things never change)

      I would be astounded if Archie McPhee didn't have them.

          I saw them at Archie McPhee's in December.

          I bought my last package at Michael's.

          (and no, I'm not going to think about the plastics and paints and what they're offgassing.)
