A Very Special Christening Cake

Last year I received a phone call from a lovely client, requesting a Christening Cake with a twist. On the day of their beautiful baby boy's christening, both parents were going to surprise their family with the renewal of their vows. I was completely taken with their story, and could not wait to create the perfect Wedding/Christening Cake, ( as it was often referred too).

So of course, there had to be a 'Lace Design' on the cake, delicate piping and little pearl drops. The ornamental cross was dusted with an edible navy glitter so that it really popped, and this also picked up the glitter on the bride's shoes and on her dress. I added the building blocks and teddy bear to give the cake a soft and child like feel. But most importantly, to really tell this story, the cake needed animated toppers. 

This cake was all about the love and joy that little Charlie was to bring to this family, and the animated cake toppers were to be the 'cherry on to of the cake'.

Finally the cake was delivered on 6th February 2016 to The Bromley Court Hotel.

I have added some final close up shots below.
