I was very honoured to get asked to make the cakes for my friends daughter’s baptism. As they call her their little princess that was an obvious theme for the cakes. I wanted to make them quite colourful and fun, but still keep with traditional baby girl colours. So it became a princess cake and a cake with a cheeky little baby peeking out from her pram with a rabbit doing the pushing.
The cakes were different in look and taste.
One was a choclate cake with mango and raspberry mousse filling. Covered with chocolate buttercream and sugarpaste.
The second was a new experiment. Ginger- cinnamon sponge cake with caramel mousse, pear and dark chocolate mousse. I was worried the cake was going to be too sweet, so I held back on the filling, which made the cake slightly dry. Next time more filling, is thus the conclusion. They were covered with liquer butter cream and sugarpaste.
