We were asked to create a two-tier cake for a baby girl’s baptism on the weekend. We were given the colours: white, pink; and then given creative freedom to create whatever we wanted.
Knowing a little about the overall style of the event, cake designer Emily wanted to create a simple, elegant cake with soft lace accents.
She started with a white fondant base and trimmed the base with a fondant lace applique in blush.
She created gumpaste blooms and hand painted the stamens silver and the petals with a touch of blush.
The final accent was the cross – created out of silver dragees and applied to the cake one by one.
To complete the whole look, we placed the cake on a silver pedestal stand for display.
Happy Baptism Gioia!
