Christening Cake

This is a christening cake I made for my niece Gráinne in July 2013.

It is a two tiered cake, the bottom tier is vanilla sponge, made using the BBC’s recipe for ‘Easy Vanilla Cake’ which I would highly recommend.  The top tier is a chocolate moist sponge.

About Aoife

I enjoy making cakes and decorating them for family and friends. I am interested in swapping recipies and techniques with others interested in cake baking and decorating.
