Christening Day

Hi everyone.  Yesterday, Sun Jan 16th was a mile stone in the lives of 2 little guys, Nicholas and Joshua. They were christened into the Catholic church and we were asked to help celebrate this momentous occasion by making a cake and of course we were more than delighted.  Their grandmother, my BFF requested a cake to resemble a book and wanted their picture to be incorporated on the cake.  Here is a picture of Nicholas and Joshua's cake;


The cake was chocolate with strawberry cream & fresh strawberries for the filling. The Calla lilies and butterflies are made from gum paste, all else is fondant. The butterflies were hand painted with edible food colour mixed with a little vodka.  I love the cross design but we can not take credit for the design. We saw this design in Doodle-cakes.com and loved it.  The feedback on the cake was wonderful.  Everyone loved the look and taste.  Just what we love to hear.   Well, congratulations Nicholas and Joshua!
