Christening cake

Christening cake

I made this christening cake for my husbands cousins sweet baby girl Mathilde. A three tier cake in bright colors with flowers, toadstools, butterflies, ladybirds, caterpillars and small snails. I have made all the decorations out of gum paste.

The baby cake topper is partly made of marzipan and gum paste. It have been a secret about the cake design. So when the parents saw the cake they were overwhelmed. I was so happy that they liked it. I am also a bit tired now as there have been a lot of work with this cake.

Happy Caking!

      I don’t bake with the fan on because I find that the top of the cake bakes faster than the rest of the cake. Which gives a hard crust.

    Kelly: She’s wearing a diaper ;-) I have used different sizes of leaf/flower cutters for the cake.

    You can make the bugs 1 month before use and store them in an airthight container.

    OMG!! I love this cake, it is my little girls christening in Aug and I think I will attempt something similar, I have never attempted anything so big but you are such an inspiration.
    Can you tell me what cutter you have used to make the little girls skirt and also are they a normal leaf cutter for the flowers?
    If I started to make the bugs a long time before, how long would they keep? and the baby girl is she sitting on a marzipan base??
    I would appreciate any help, your work is amazing and you have fantastic eye for design. Thanks you soo much:)
