From start to finish this job was an absolute pleasure … my client liked what I had done with the China Doll, so I adapted the flowers to suit a pink christening cake for a gorgeous little girl. This design was based on a beautiful invitation which featured birds and a featured hand written message on the front.
The dove was made from modelling paste. I didn’t quite know what to expect with the figurine as I haven’t made anything as large as this for a topper. I made it well ahead of time so it had plenty of time to dry. I did have visions of wings falling off but tried to push them out of my mind!!
Chocolate fudge cake soaked with Cointreau and filled with dark chocolate ganache.
There is a gorgeous special occassion gift and bomboniere business in Melbourne called “Annabella Bomboniere” that has a fantastic selection of modern peices – not your usual crystal figurine kind of stuff. I designed this cake around one of the wooden china dolls they offer as a christening favour and owners Anna and Theo were kind enough to display it in their store…
She comes in all sorts of colours but I was particularly taken by the blue one and so created a cake around her. They loved it and I hope their clients love it too!
The flowers around the bottom tier are another version of the whimsical blossoms that feature on a few of my christening designs.. this time a little more sophisticated with pearl lustre dust giving them depth of colour and some stamens in the middle – just for something different!
