Christening Cake Decorating Ideas

12" boy's christening cake

Christening cake decorating ideas often feature the cross and come in pastel shades. Although this cake was made for a boy, simply switching the clue to pink makes it suitable for a girl's christening.

You will need:

  • 14" round cake board
  • 2 - 12" cakes
  • buttercream icing
  • blue or pink food coloring (for a boy or girl)
  • tips #2,16,22
  1. Place cake on cake board. Fill and frost cakes with white buttercream icing.
  2. Fill a pastry bag with either blue or pink buttercream frosting. Use tip #2 to draw a cross in the center of the cake.
  3. Fill another pastry bag with white buttercream frosting. Use tip #2 to draw a dot outline around the cross.
  4. Use either blue or pink icing to create smaller dots on top of the dot outline, also with tip #2.
  5. Cover the top of the cake with white cornelli lace, using tip #2, except for the inside of the cross.
  6. Using tip #16, pipe a ruffle border around the top edge of the cake. (The technique for the ruffle is the same as for the shell, except the tip is wiggled while piping).
  7. Using tip #22, pipe a ruffle border around the base of the cross cake.
  8. Using either pink or blue icing, pipe dots in between the ruffles on the top and bottom borders, using tip #2.
  9. Using tip #2 and either pink or blue icing, surround the cross with wave design.
  10. Write message on the cake with the #2 tip, using either blue or pink icing.
