If you are looking to give a cake your own personal touch, here are some easy things you can do at home to decorate.

Edible Flowers

Edible flowers are a fantastic way to practice cake decorating at home. This has become a huge trend in cake decorating, and for good reason. You would be surprised at how many edible flowers could be growing just outside your kitchen door. Many flowers have edible petals which are ideal for cake decoration. With striking colours and natural beauty, they are the perfect accompaniment to buttercream or fondant icing. Popular choices include violet, pineapple sage, blue starflower, nasturtium and marigold. Always be sure to use pesticide free flowers, and if you don’t feel comfortable identifying them yourself, buy from a reputable source.

Coloured Icing Splatter

Show your artistic flair by splattering some coloured icing on top of the cake. Every cake will be unique, and the colours will run and blend into each other – just like an abstract painting. The options for experimenting are endless. Maybe you like a bright blue, or maybe even a neon green? You could even use every colour of the rainbow – it’s up to you, just have fun!

Fresh Berries

Everyone loves berries! They look incredible with their vibrant blue, black and red colours and provide just the right amount of acidity to counter the sweetness of the cake. They are also incredibly healthy and packed with antioxidants, so you can have your cake and eat it too!  Fresh berries taste best, so why not make it an excuse to pop down to your local farmers market and see what’s in season.  Fresh berries are an ideal option for cake decorating at home.

Hundreds and Thousands

Hundreds and thousands are a classic option for cake decorating at home. They are fun, fast to work with and readily available. Hundreds and thousands will stick best to buttercream icing. Try coating your entire cake in them – it will add texture, colour and interest that can’t be achieved any other way. You could even take it a step further and dress it with a ribbon or cake topper. Give it a go!

Coloured buttercream

Buttercream icing is easy to make and tastes great. You can add a pop of colour by adding a few drops of food colouring to the mix. You could then try a mix of piping and spreading to achieve different textures on your cake. Food colouring is available in a wide variety of colours, so feel free to experiment.

Baptisms and christenings are important religious traditions that celebrate new life and spiritual rebirth.  Welcoming a baby boy or girl into the community is a momentous event that will be enjoyed by all in attendance. During a christening, your child will be baptized with water – this represents spiritual cleansing and a commitment to faith. Once the formalities are over, the baptism cake will steal the show – so let us help you celebrate.

Casa Del offer a wide range of baptism cakes to cater to every taste and personality. Many of them feature religious motifs making them perfect for traditional baptism and christening ceremonies, but we also offer contemporary designs that seem to be an increasingly popular choice. Whilst traditionally a christening cake would have a fruit cake base, these days most people are opting for either a light sponge or mud cake.

 

Christening and Baptism Cakes from Casa Del

For a contemporary twist on the traditional baptism cake, we have the Buttercream Round Cake. Featuring a handmade iced blue cross and personalised writing, this cake is elegant yet meaningful. The perfect choice to mark the occasion of your child’s baptism or christening.

For a unique take, consider our Bible Book Cake. This cake presents just like a bible, commemorating the baptism or christening within its pages. The religious significance is highlighted through the large cross on one page of the book, whilst the other features a personalised message and the date.

Our dazzling pink cakes are particularly popular with girls. Choose from the round buttercream cake decorated with booties and butterflies, princess quilted cake with ruffles, iced bow and tiara or the beautiful two tier quilted block cake featuring iced baby shoes, ribbon and a dazzling diamante cross.

Boys and girls alike love animals and colourful characters, and don’t we know it! Check out our Teddy Bear Cake which is a stunning two-tier cake with vibrant blue royal icing and polka dots. It is adorned with a handmade teddy bear and personalised plaque to commemorate the day.

We also have the Elephant Cake, adorned with iced bows, polka dots, stripes and a handmade Elephant topper. Both these cakes are perfect for the animal lovers. They are ideal baptism cakes and are best made with your choice of caramel, chocolate or marble flavours.
