Peony & ruffles Christening cake

Jessica contacted us through a friend and asked if we could help her celebrate her beautiful little girl Allegra's Christening day by making her a special cake.  The request was a ruffle cake with a single Peony.

The 2 tiers were made up of lemon cake filled with a fresh lemon curd topped with vanilla mousse.

The bottom tier is covered in a 50/50 mix of gum paste and fondant graduated pink ruffles. The top tier is covered in a soft pink fondant with royal icing scroll work.

The single pink Peony is made from gum paste.
Thank you Jessica for the opportunity to make this cake for Allegra. We wish Allegra a bright and beautiful future.

  1. A nice note from Jessica;
    Hi Mary,
    I've been meaning to write you all day. The cake was absolutely delicious and so so so beautiful! My guests kept asking if it was made of fabric and if the peony was a real flower! It was heartbreaking to cut it!!

    Thank u again. I was generous in passing along your company name and info and you will definitely hear from me again.

    Thanks again. Jessica
