This morning I just dropped off the cake we did for Victoria's Christening being held today. Victoria is the beautiful daughter of Mel's new boss. When requesting this cake Victoria's mom didn't want to know what design we were going to come up with as she wanted to be surprised. Her only criteria was that it have Lilac in the design and that the design was to be girly.
This 2 tiered cake is red velvet cake filled with cream cheese filling. We pulled the design ideas from a cake Mel found online. The bottom tier is covered in the lilac fondant and bordered 1st with a band of white surrounded by lilac ribbon roses.
The top tier was done in white with a gum paste cross front and centre and topping it off with a little sleeping baby done in gum paste covered in a little blanket. The sides have fondant swags on either side. We added a few white dragee and scattered lilac flowers.
We finished the look with a gum paste bow off to the side. Victoria's mom was very surprised and pleased when I dropped off the cake. We were delighted to make this cake for Victoria on her special day.
