View Full Version : Trial of my boys Christening Cake
I am making Spencer's Christening Cake. Here is my first attempt at it, what do you think?
Its pretty rough but not too bad for a first attempt I think. :fingerscrossed:
:confused: Where is the cake
I was too early
It Looks GREAT now i want cake
wow ED ...
you're going to make it yourself!!! ooher .. I would be WAAAY too scared - I struggled to make the ORDER .. lol
it looks lovely :D
It looks gorgeous!
Gee thanks, I was feeling pretty bad about it being so primitive looking. You ladies sure have boosted my spirits, I will post the final cake when I do it. :thumbsup: When we have the date organised.
Thanks for compliments :)

ED - you haven't been making cakes professionally for 10 years -so you are not going to get the 'perfect' look that shops produce .. but Spencer will look back at the cake - and know .. that mum made it just for him .. and that there aren't any other cakes out there like it ..
I love it ... good for you hon!
Oh how I wish I had been making cakes for 10yrs or was at least really good, hehe then I would have an income. :thumbsup:
Hunni is looks great i love it. my girls was boring.
Awww that is gawjus!! I wish i had the talent to make something other than a floppy pancake look a like... Well done!! :smiliedance:
It looks great! You should be very proud of yourself. :yes:
Wow you have some talent there have you thought about doing it professionally?
For a first attempt that's brilliant.:thumbsup:
Some tips you might like to use.
To get a smoother surface pack any dents in cake with extra icing before laying icing over the cake, bit like bogging up holes with plaster. Or use a layer of marzipan (be aware that quite a few people are allergic to almonds these days) under the icing layer.
If I've had to patch the icing I smooth it over with my fingers in gentle strokes/small circles (time consuming don't rush it), it warms the icing and you can get a seamless smooth icing. By making the edges of icing slightly thicker you can get that smooth edge.
I use those little tubes of icing to write on cakes or you can melt some choc and copha together and using an icing pipe, pipe the writing onto a peice of baking paper. Will harden and can be lifted off carefully and placed on cake.
That looks AMAZING!!! For Bianca's, we had the top layer of our wedding cake (http://i147.photobucket.com/albums/r292/NayBobBianca/BiancasChristeningcake-1.jpg)(it's tradition)
Wow that is really clever!! Looks yum too hehe!
looks awsome i had mine made it was a bible with the boys pic on either side of the cake.
Thanks ladies, we have set the date in March so I will be doing another trial soon. Will show you that one too if anyone is interested to see how I am going. :yes:
sounds great hope it all goes well with the cake.
