Lexi's Christening Cake




Well..........

For three years I have been wanting to do a cake I fell in love with on a website. Lexi (my niece) gets Christened today so for the past three months I have been so excited about doing the cake. I even spent an extra $50 on cutters from Canada.... and the day I went to put it all together I TOTALLY went off the idea!!!!!!!!!!!

This has never happened to me before. I am a PLANNER!!!!!!!!!!

So with less than a day to come up with a new design.... an extra 5 kilos of fondant as I changed colours of this cake halfway through.... here she is. LOL

Shoes, ribbon and bow handmade by me and they are edible :O)

Gorgeous! I love the shoes! Do you have a font cutter or is the named piped onto the board?

The Cake Maker said...

Thanks so much.... I was really pleased with this one!

The name is done by using Tappits (funky letters)... they are horrid things to use but very effective.

I tried this many times, and mostly comes up with a much greater result than the original idea. As you did, this is totally beautiful! :-)
