Beatrix Potter Christening Cake

This cake was originally designed by Donna https://www.facebook.com/donnamakescakesfanpage, who kindly gave me permission to reproduce it.

The cake is for a lovely lady named Emma and her husband Scott, who so far have had their wedding, and baby show cake from me. So this sort of completed the set.

Once again I hugely underestimated the number of hours it would take to do the modelling and also the lettering (until I happened upon a wonderful trick which I will share in a tutorial).

The cake is a chocolate orange sponge with a chocolate orange buttercream ganache.

Enjoy your weekend:-)
