Simple, sweet & elegant Christening cake

Saturday I had the honour of delivering a cake we made for a special little boy who was being Christened.  His Godmother Gabriela called and asked if we could make a special cake to help celebrate the occasion.

This white and off white 2 tiered cake consists of the bottom tier being a red velvet cake with a cream cheese filling and the top tier in a chocolate fudge cake with a white chocolate mousse filling.

We topped this cake with a gum paste sleeping baby laying at the foot of a gum paste cross. We covered our little baby with a fondant blanket.

At the base of the top tier we placed a gum paste bow and the baby's name just above. We also bordered the top tier with a fondant band to appear as the ribbon and trimmed it with a delicate rosette trim.

On either side of the top tier facing forward are the words "God Bless".

The bottom tier is done with a quilted effect and has soft ivory sugar pearls. Even the board is embossed with crosses with the same ivory sugar pearls at their center.

We wish Kristijan a bright future of love, health and happiness!
