Christening/Dedication Cake

No Comments »

When asked to do this cake for one of my regular clients I was so excited!

Her 5 month old baby boy was being dedicated, and she wanted a biblical cake to mark the occasion.  This cake was just perfect – well I thought so anyway.

Noah’s Ark.

Isn’t it gorgeous?  I only did 4 animals around the front of the cake, purely because no-one sees the back of the cake, and she wanted the focus of the cake to be on the Ark, not the animals.

I loved the result.  And so did she :)

Christmas Cake & Cupcakes


I decided this year to make Christmas Cakes. This was the first time I have done this, and whilst they are fairly time consuming to make (and bake), I feel that they are well worth the effort. I was lucky enough to be given my mother in laws recipe, and it is divine. Jam packed with fruit, nuts, cherries and lots of extras, it is an absolutely delicious cake.

Fruit & Nut Christmas Cake

As I have a wedding cake order for next year, I made a small cake, as a ‘taster’ for my client, but decorated it in the Christmas Theme for fun. Simple, but classy.

Vanilla Christmas Cupcakes

And then my favourite, vanilla cupcakes with white buttercream frosting and Christmas decor. SO pretty. And aqua and white for a change, with silver accents.

Merry Christmas to all of my readers, followers and clients. Thanks for all the support this year – it really has been an amazing year. I have been so blessed by all of you.

Travel safe if you are, and enjoy this special time with your families x
