I am so excited to show you all what I worked on last weekend!: a two-tier cake for a baby boy’s baptism celebration, as well as 2 dozen cupcakes. There is a lot of “kitschy” out there for all cakes related to babies and children, so I was happy to design something that was tasteful, clean, and beautiful.
The top tier of this all-yellow butter cake was frosted simply with white vanilla buttercream and adorned with a white fondant plaque with the baby boy’s name in blue letters. The bottom tier, frosted with baby blue-tinted vanilla buttercream, was decorated with a white swiss dot pattern. Both tiers and the cake board were tied together with a shimmery gold ribbon + bow, and the boy’s baptism date added to the frosted cake board. Now, how pretty is that?!
The cupcakes were frosted with our yummy all-butter swiss buttercream, and topped with white & baby blue fondant toppers: crosses, X’s for the baby’s first name, and baby feet! The cupcakes tied in nicely with the cake, and were absolutely adorable. Best part – the fondant was 100% homemade with all-natural ingredients, and are easy to pick off for those who are not fondant-inclined (such as myself)!
