Christening Cake

Two weeks ago I baked a Christening cake for my friends and their little angle Ryan Alexander. I had to deliver this cake rather quickly since it was about 90°F outside and a 30 minutes drive seemed like several hours. If you ever attempt to transport a cake in such a heat, make sure to run your car’s air conditioner for at least 20 minutes before setting out on the road. The cake was a carrot cake (my friends’ favorite) and the decoration was done in cream cheese icing. If you have pictures of the cakes you baked in the past, please share it with me. Just go to contact page and drop me a line or two.

So without any further ado, here is how the cake came out:

And here are few other closer shots of the decoration details. As I mentioned above the decoration was done in cheese icing.
Baby Angel
The flowers (roses) are made royal icing. You can probably find these in your local baking supplies store. The gum paste flowers can be used as well. One time I have even attempted making flowers out of fondant. The fondant flowers when dried are hard, however I would not recommend using fondant flowers along with any icing as the flowers will absorb the moisture from the icing rather quickly and may loose the shape and leak the colors.

The little baby angle was decorative (non eatable). But it can be a nice reminder of the baptism for the family to keep.
