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.
I covered both with sugarpaste and decorated with a sugarpaste teddy, sugarpaste baby in a cot, cubes with Gráinne’s name on them and some other decorations. The decorations take more time than baking so I ran out of time, I could have perhaps decorated it a little more. Gráinne’s sister Aoibhinn who is 2 and a half, liked the train best and I think she may have eaten the whole lot!
