Mia & Riley's Christening Cake

Again my poor little blog has been neglected. I have had a small break from making cakes so not a lot to post about. The past weekend I made a gorgeous combined christening cake for a brother and sister. It was a challenge to put together something that suited both a boy and a girl, a 2 year old and a baby. The cake was white chocolate mudcake with white chocolate ganache and fondant covering. I made the doll and the train from modelling paste. The swag around the cake was also made of icing and provided a lovely finishing touch to the cake.

This week I am in party planning mode, Oliver is turning 5 this weekend. His party is an "Emergency Services" theme, as he is fascinated by fire engines, police cars and ambulances. He did have a fire engine themed party last year, but insisted on a similar theme this year. I had to take a step back and realise that is all about him!!! I also have another 9 cakes to do between Thursday and Tuesday, so I will be a busy little bee in the kitchen. I will have a very long post next week, showing you all of the photo's of my creations. 

Enjoy your week.
