This is the communion cake I was talking about when I made the pink, blossoms communion cake post. This cake was actually for a combination Confirmation and First Holy Communion celebration. It was also for a boy and the green colours were inspired by the handmade invitation. Silver was added to match the silver cross which was also used on the invitation.

It was decided stars would be a nice addition as it was for Thomas and they have been used around the base of the cake some on the top and the dove has been embossed with stars.

I love the simplicity of these two communion cake designs. I think small hearts could also be used and of course any colour combination. I think it could also look amazing in white on white with maybe gold or silver detail if you wanted some colour.

These christening cupcakes were made to be handed out to the guests as they left the church which I think is a delicious Idea.

The cupcakes have been topped with embossed fondant with a layer of chocolate ganache underneath. As an extra special finish the cupcakes were presented in filigree cupcake wrappers in ivory.

This ladybug cake collage came as a request from Sue in Canada asking if I could put some of my ladybug designs together in one image so she could use it to work from whilst making her daughters 1st birthday cake.

So Sue I hope this helps!!!

This is a girls confirmation cake design that I made lat week and I was really pleased with the final result. It used white, soft pink and an almost mushroom pink/brown as it’s colour scheme.

The design is simple but elegant with an embossed dove and cross on the top. White blossoms some with a pink centre soften and sweeten the design. A little sugar paste butterfly with the inscription finishes the design.

I’m doing a variation of this for a boys confirmation next week so I will also make a post for that cake.

I think variations of this would work well for many occasions. The dove could be replaced by a monogram, birthday number or even just a cross for a christening cake.

Blue comes in so many shades it is best to ask for a sample to match if your client is asking for a specific colour. These are just some of the cakes I have made in blue.

As you can see the most popular cakes I make in blue are christening cakes for little boys. Then the next most popular would be designs in the famous tiffany blue which I think is my favourite blue colour.

I have also put collages together for pink, purple, red and black & white cakes.

I just wanted to show you a christening cupcake tower that I made last week.

There was a selection of both chocolate and caramel cupcakes which had been topped in either white or pink buttercream (my recipe is so so so smooth http://inspired-by-chocolate-and-cakes.com/chocolate-buttercream.html ) or whipped dark chocolate ganache.

They were baked in pink, silver and gold foil cases to tie in with the christening theme. They were topped with handmade fondant decorations – a mixture of small embossed butterflies in pink and white, pearls, bows and blossoms in pink and white.

Some of the cupcakes were displayed on the families wire cupcake stand and others were packed into display boxes and tied with ribbons as gifts for the guests.

The top cake had a piped design in pink that included butterflies, flowers and a bird amongst the swirls. It was displayed in front on the cupcake tower as I did not chance putting it on top of the slightly wobbly stand!

The whole display looked lovely and I received a wonderful thank you and some photos that I have included in this collage.
