Cake pops are taking the country by storm. I really wanted to try baking some for Eloise's christening but i didn't have time to try out the quite complicated recipe.
My lovely sisters in law George, Sam and Vic stepped in and as a surprise made a whole batch for us!
They looked fab and matched the colour scheme of the main cake and cupcakes. They tasted fab and everyone enjoyed them.
My baby daughter Eloise was christened a couple of weeks ago and i had saved a fruit tier of our wedding cake to re-ice as her christening cake.
I re-iced the cake with 2 layers of marzipan and white icing. I then embossed a rocking horse around the base with a patchwork cutter and dusted with pink petal dust to highlight the design. I then added cut out icing flowers between the horses and topped the cake with 3 handmade building bricks decorated in icing designs such as flowers, bunny rabbits and butteflies. For a personal touch i included my daughters, husbands and my own initals (E C A) on the bricks.
To finish the display i baked 100 vanilla sponge cupcakes in bright pink striped cases and topped with a rich vanilla buttercream icing. The decorations on the cupcakes were made from icing and refelcted the designs on the building bricks. A shimmer of edible glitter finished the look.
It was a great day and all the cakes were gobbled up.
Big thank you to my Uncle Stu who took some fab pictures of the cakes!
