Baptism Bakes!

Little Max was Baptised over the weekend so I was brave (okay – maybe cheap… Have you seen what cake shops charge for two tier cakes!) and made my first two tier cake covered in fondant.

Baptism Cake
It’s not perfect but I was happy with it, I loved the colour (I had to colour the fondant myself) and it tasted good which is the most important thing.  It was chocolate cake with a chocolate ganache butter cream.  I used a cookie cutter to make the cross and piped Max’s name with royal icing, which was used to secure the ribbon to the cake as well.  The cake also doubled as Max’s four month cake as part of my on going project to do a cake for him every month to improve my skills so I can make him a really awesome first birthday cake next February.

I also made little thank you favours for our guests, little short bread crosses which I sprinkled with blue and white sugar to jazz them up a bit!
