Created for a little girl’s christening, this cake is based on a previous christening cake design of mine that was 3 tiers and featured the Owl & the Pussycat. My blossom bootees adorn the top of this cake.
Top tier white chocolate and raspberry mud filled with a luxurious white chocolate ganache and the bottom tier is an apple and cinnamon cake with a decadent caramel ganache filling.
This cake was created for a little girl’s christening. It brought together various elements of other designs I’ve done in the past. It features the Sweet Tiers signature blossoms and a cascade of hand painted butterflies, finished off with a sugar bow.
This christening cake was designed with the soft hues of blue for a baby boy in mind, something simple and elegant but suitable for an infant at the same time.
The blossoms were hand made and individually painted / dusted with lustre dust to achieve the graduated colours on top.
The height of the tiers was kind of un-intentional (!!) I didn’t realise how ridiculously high they were until it came time to cover them with fondant. Luckily I was quick and it all went well (phew!). Kind of ironic as many times I wish I had those extra few ever elusive centimeters!!
