Font Christening Cake


Font Christening Cake

Highly Commended at Cake International.

The design for this cake came from Kerry herself when she had her son christened many, many years ago!!  She had always wanted to create this cake design for a special occasion and at last had the opportunity to do so at Cake International in 2009.  The comment card given by the independent judges spoke for itself with regards to the design. 

It was made by using polystyrene hexagonal dummies for the column which were then covered with a grey marbled fondant and placed onto two hexagonal boards.  The font itself was made with another hexagonal cake dummy covered with the grey marbled fondant and placed on boards to match the column.  A gelatine recipe was used to create the water effect and a baby and blanket was modelled out of sugar paste and placed onto the top edge.  Oval run out plaques were made and fixed to 3 alternate sides of the font and icing inscriptions of the baby’s name, date of birth and christening date were added to each one.  Fondant butterflies and drapes were made and placed onto the other three sides and a pretty blue christening ribbon was added to the cake boards to complete the look.

As with all our cakes, this cake can be made using any of our sponge or fruit recipes and the decoration altered to suit your personal specification.
