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.

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.

Beautiful baby teddy bears decorate all these cakes. I make smooth bears and a shaggy version and they can come in any colour combination you wish. Some of the christening or baptism cakes also include a little crystal cross on one of the bears paws. Like the jungle animals if you carefully remove the bears they can be kept as a memento of the day. Fondant bears are not only for baby’s cakes the image with the two shaggy bears was for a 25th wedding anniversary.

I thought I would also show you my video on how to make the shaggy teddy bears – they really are very easy to make.

This is the link http://inspired-by-chocolate-and-cakes.com/inspired-by-michelle-YouTube.html and look for the How to make a shaggy fondant teddy bear video.

Enjoy! Bye for now, Michelle

Today I’m adding another couple of cake collages. The first one is some of my jungle cake designs. This has to be the most popular theme for christening and first birthdays for little boys. But I have also included a picture for a little girls theme as well. All the animals are made out of fondant and if carefully removed can be kept as a memento.

The animals can be made ahead of time but I would suggest if the monkey is going to sit on the side of the cake then add his legs and tail on the cake as you will get a better fit. Having said that my timing and work load usually means I’m making the animals fresh in position on the cake!!

I hope this little collection of ideas inspires you to be a little more creative. The most popular christening and 1st birthday cake I currently make for boys is the jungle theme which I love and I just make the animals up as I go!

I don’t think it is possible to run out of ideas for pretty christening or baptism cakes for girls. The most popular way now to design the cake is to use the beautiful handmade invitations mums are making or having made.

You can find large images of these cakes on my site www.inspiredbymichelle.com.au there is also more ideas for you to discover. I hope this collage idea is helpful and inspirational. I should also add I have done one for boys and 1st birthday cake ideas for both as these cake ideas can also be used for christenings and baptisms.

Bye for now, Michelle

I do not think there goes a week that I do not make a cake that does not have at least one butterfly on it – usually white pink or purple! It is the most versatile theme the cakes here are for birthdays of any age weddings, cupcakes and christenings baptisms.

Again it is one of the collages I have put together. The original butterfly cake images can be found on my site www.inspiredbymichelle.com.au
