It was Octavia’s beautiful baby’s christening day this weekend. She asked me for this jam and buttercream filled Madeira cake topped with a family of 5 jolly little zebras. I love something different, and this certainly was! I hope you all had a lovely day. X
I made a first birthday cake for Tobias earlier this year and last weekend he was baptised. Mum asked me for this vanilla buttercream and jam filled madeira cake topped with a jaunty sugar train. Tobias can keep the train as a souvenir as long as no one has eaten it.
This was an unusual Christening cake with rainbows inside and out. Multicolour vanilla sponge layers with buttercream filling covered in fondant and topped with a sugar rainbow and rainbow flowers and little butterflies.
Jess sent me the picture of the cut cake with this very kind message: “Wow what a beautiful cake!! It was amazing in looks and taste. Well our picnic was eventful in the rain but thankfully we had the cake and Prosecco to make it all better!”
Sue wanted a non traditional cake for her grandson Anton’s Christening party. He is 2 and loves trains and trucks, particularly Thomas. Chocolate was the request so I just topped the big sticky square cake with an engine and trucks, also made of iced chocolate cake and piped with his name.
Florence asked me to make 36 yellow and blue cupcakes for her great nephew’s christening celebrations today. Here are a few of them. Hope it all goes well Florence.
Jess wanted a cake for little Mia’s Christening that would keep everyone happy. So we made a rich fruit cake topped with a jam filled Madeira and then covered them liberally with pink and purple flowers and butterflies.
Jan had made a delicious fruit cake and asked me to ice it for her for baby Toby’s christening on Sunday. We chose a simple piped decoration with a sugar broderie anglaise border. Have a lovely day everyone.
