Christening cake - Royal Melb Entry

    Newer Older

    2tier Christening cake entered in the 2009 Royal Melbourne Show

    Booties are made from fondant - this was not my original design, I was planning on having a baby on the top but in the end, my baby was too small, so I changed it to a pair of booties (made on the day the entry had to be in).

    This cake won First in its category

    Sweet Tiers, and 43 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      Effie, I'll interogate you on it then :-) Not right away, take a breath first :)

      ... yes, I cannot wait on Fran's entry too. I suspected there was a reason for her long silence :)
