My first ever hand modelled baby! How exciting! My clients was after a Christening Cake for their youngest daughter. They were after a chocolate mudcake with the colour theme of white, soft pink and a bit of silver. They wanted a slight religious feel to the cake by adding a cross, a baby on top and the name and date on there somewhere.
We decided on a 20cm milk chocolate mudcake which I covered with milk chocolate ganache. I covered the cake and cake board (which I made with my new table saw ) with white fondant. I hand modelled my very first baby and covered her with a blanket. I used a great tutorial on You Tube to show me how to do this. I put a silver cross on the side of the cake for the religious feel and followed through with the pink & silver theme with some pink & silver fondant balls around the bottom of the cake. I finished the cake off with the name and date piped on top. Hope you had a lovely Christening Day Annabel
This week I made a Christening Cake for the Bunt family. Their two sons had a joint Christening and wanted a cake that followed through with the big brother, little brother love. This cake is a two teir round cake with the bottom teir being a 20cm caromello mud and the top teir being a 15cm white chocolate mud. Both teirs were covered in ganache and a thin layer of rolled fondant. The bottom teir was decorated with three different shades of blue stripes which I followed through to the cake board. The top teir was decorated with three different shades of blue spots in varying sizes. To top the cake I hand modelled two blue teddy bears, one smaller than the other being a big and little brother bear. The big brother bear is holding his blankie. I hope the boys had a lovely Christening Day!
