Joey's Christening day

This past Sunday October 19th marked a special day for a special little boy.  Giuseppe Stefano was christened.  Alicia, Joey's mom, asked if we could make the cake to help celebrate this wonderful event.

The colours on the invitations were blue and silver so I thought to incorporate these colours into the design.  The 2 tiered cake consists of vanilla cake filled with cookies and cream buttercream.

The top tier has a gum paste cross and a fondant/silver sugar pearl rosary.  Also in white raised fondant lettering is "God Bless" on the top and "Giuseppe" on the front of the top tier.

Bordering the top tier is a blue bow and ribbon which is added around to appear as if it is weaving in and out of the tier.

The bottom tier is done in a quilted design of diamonds within diamonds.  I highlighted the smaller diamond in the quilted pattern with a soft silver painted with edible silver glitter and added silver sugar pearls to define the larger diamonds.

"God Bless Giuseppe"
