For my niece’s christening I wanted to make a special cake going with the theme that decorates her nursery – Winnie the Pooh. Her very talented mum painted the fantastic characters onto her wall and they look amazing,
We needed lots of cake to feed everyone who was coming to the day so I choose to make a four tiered cake. Each tier was covered in white fondant with some decoration and ribbon added. I then placed the characters I had made a few days earlier on to the cake. The characters were made from fondant mixed with some tylo powder to strengthen it up. I cut round templates to create the shape of each character then painted the colour and design onto the pieces of fondant cut out. The painting was done using paste colours mixed with some rejunvinating fluid and a paint brush.
The cake was made up of a lemon cake, two chocolate cakes and a vanilla cake. I used a photo frame we had been given at Dave and Fin’s wedding which they used for the name cards, to top the cake. I even went to our friend Jo to ask her to write out the photo frame as she did all the writing for the wedding and I wanted it to match.
I had a lot of fun making this cake and we had an amazing day.
To go with this cake I also made a photo frame and card to match and a helium foil balloon.
