Happy Monday – it’s cake time!
This past weekend was a christening in my family. I’m not exactly sure of the link – it’s my dad’s cousin’s son’s son… is that my second cousin once-removed? Something like that… I think… but regardless – this new lil guy is my cousin! 🙂
Trying to figure out what to do for a christening cake was a feat unto itself… try googling it. Seriously. You get everything from cross-shaped cakes to cakes with teddy bears to cakes with booties and balloons. Basically, it seems like whatever is blue works well, and most people seem to shove the religious part by the wayside. After spending days and days searching for something to give me inspiration, I gave up, feeling no more inspired than when I started.
Then I ran across a forum post on Cake Central (if you are a baker, check it out, it’s awesome!). For billowing fondant.
And I was hooked.
