Newborn Baby Christening~Shower~Welcome Cake!

"TOOT TOOT!" yes that is me tooting my own horn hehehe!!  I had to put this photo first because I love it and I can't believe I took it, I have just discovered how to use a new setting on my camera so I'm quite pleased with myself although had I read the instruction manual when I first got my camera I could have been making good use of this setting for the past twelve months;)

I am so excited to share my newest  and original cake design with you, everything you see is edible except for the piece of satin ribbon I used to trim the base of this cake {which I had to add to cover a little mistake I made while adding the damask pattern}, even the baby is handmade out of fondant icing! Inspiration for this came from memories of Anne Geddes beautiful photography, I had several diaries and calendars of hers during my high school years!

I think this is now my favourite adult cake that I've created so far...You could use this design for an elegant baby shower, a welcome cake for a newborn celebration, fantastic christening cake or even an adult birthday.  I used a leaf viener for the pattern on the rose petals which I thought gave a realistic effect.

The damask pattern is all royal icing which I tinted creamy peach (out of the wilton range of colours), the cake itself is two 6inch rounds that are 4inches high each stacked on top of each other to form a tall cake drum. To eat this cake you would seperate the two cakes just by cutting horizontally in the middle and lifting the top cake off, I'm not sure if I could eat the baby though??!

Bottoms up :)  I took alot of photos of this cake which I will be adding to my facebook albums if you would like to have a look!  Sorry for the lack of blog posts I have found myself overly busy of late, have a great weekend!


  1. absolutely beautiful work, the detail in the baby and rose petals are amazing! Do you use a light box when photographing your cakes? I'd also be interested to know what setting you use on your camera. Fantastic photo, fantastic cake!

  2. Thankyou Kelly! Detail in rose petals is made with a silicone leaf veiner, no light box just a sunny day next to the window! And the setting on my camera for the first shot is called 'pinhole'...I hope this helps you out a bit!
