Welcoming a new baby into the world is the most joyful of family celebrations, and making a special cake for all to share at the christening is a loving gesture that will never be forgotten. Linda Pawsey has created 20 spectacular cake designs, ranging from simple, elegant cakes that would be suitable for the most formal christening, to cute animal cakes that young children will love.
The designs in Christening Cakes can be made by novice cake decorators or experienced sugarcrafters alike by following the straightforward step-by-step instructions. Special sections explain how to achieve stunning fabric effects and how to make the more complicated models such as babies and cribs.
This cake book will teach the reader how to create edible works of art with varying materials such as sugarpaste and fondant. This cake decorating guide has recipes for both christening cakes and birthday cakes as well.
There are cakes for baby boys and girls, older children and even twins, along with suggestions for personalizing the designs to create a completely original look. Choose from the classically beautiful Draped Lace Crib and Dainty Pram; the fun-loving Duck's Bath Time and Jumbo Junior's Nap; or the more unusual Fit for a Princess christening gown or the bluebirds playing in a fountain in Making a Splash. The only difficulty you will have is deciding which cake to make for your special celebration.
