Confirmation celebration

Our 2nd cake of the weekend was requested by an old friend of mine Rita. Yesterday Rita and her husband Rick threw a celebration party to honour their son Eric's on his confirmation with family and close friends in attendance. We were delighted to a part of his celebration by providing Eric with a cake for his special day.

When Rita and I met to discus the design of the cake she told me that she liked the look of quilting which we had done on some of our previous cakes she had seen on our site. We decided on the quilting for the bottom tier which is a 12x12" lemon cake filled with lemon curd. Since the colour red is representative of confirmations we added the red sugar pearls to complete the quilted design. The top tier is an 8x8" red velvet cake with a cream cheese filing and bordered with a red fondant band.

The cross and dove topper is created with gum paste with a little added luster dust. Gum paste doves are also present on either sides of the top tier and also on the fondant banner.

We wish Eric all the best and congratulations on his confirmation.
