I’ve made many Christening cakes since I started (seems like there’s been a population explosion. lol) and several of them have been along a similar theme of the Lindy Smith inspired ‘Baby in Blanket’ cake. However, I like to make sure that no two of my cakes are identical so with this one the brief was that the baby’s favourite toy was her Minnie Mouse. So I made the figures of the baby, Minnie Mouse, the giraffe, teddy bear and blocks from modelling paste and placed them on top of this three layered, fondant covered, pink vanilla sponge cake with raspberry jam and buttercream filling. For me the ribbon made the cake. I chose East of India ribbon in red with white microdot to match Minnie’s dress.
