A little one's christening is one of the most special days of his or her life. Celebrate this momentous occasion with the perfect christening cake. Browse a variety of christening cake decorations and find just the right way to honour your child's commitment to the church with a beautifully decorated, one-of-a-kind cake that is just as special as your baby.
A contemporary twist on the traditional christening cake is making christening cupcakes instead. Portable, easy to eat, and fun for kids, cupcakes are less messy than cake and offer many decorating options for a christening. Whether you are decorating christening cupcakes for a boy or a girl, there are a wide range of options, including personalised decorations that include your baby's name and the christening date, edible sugar decorations shaped like bottles, rattles, prams, and baby shoes, and shimmering pink or blue edible pearls and beads. Small baby footprint cake toppers are cute, or you can top your cupcakes with tiny stars or crosses.
A religious-themed cake is a popular option for a baby's christening. One of the most popular cake toppers for christenings is a sugar or fondant cross. There are several ways to incorporate a cross into the cake. You can use a cross cake pan to create a cross-shaped cake, or you can make a lovely layer cake and put a cross cake topper on the very top. Another idea is to decorate the cross with edible rosary beads for a pretty communion-themed cake, or create a cake that looks like a Bible with a cross on the pages. Make a christening collage on the top of the cake with a christening outfit and booties, a cross, the rosary, and Bible decorations, or have your child's name under a simple, elegant cross with an understated ribbon decoration.
Celebrate your baby's baptism with a special cake decorated in a baby theme. Cake toppers which match this theme include sleeping baby cake toppers, babies with angel or fairy wings, babies in prams, and babies nestled in blankets or wearing christening clothes. Personalise the cake with letter blocks that spell out your baby's name around the bottom of the cake, or decorate the cake with an edible image of your child that is custom made just for your baby's christening cake. Alternately, instead of the sugar baby decorations, opt for something different with a baby shoes cake topper, a baby animal, or an angel cake topper.
