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!
