Catholic Cuisine has a Baptism cake link up that I think I'll join! I learned cake decorating shortly after high school working at a local burger/ice cream joint. I was in charge of making the ice cream cakes both the stock and the special orders. It was one of my all time favorite jobs. When John Paul was born I reawakened my inner cake decorator and for Baptisms and birthdays the boys have received a special homemade cake. The Baptism cakes aren't all that inventive but I think that's the wisest course considering they need to be made when I'm only a few weeks postpartum :)
And David's...which looks a whole lot like Michael's ;) I lost my creative touch with the cross after doing so many of them!
My kids have been dye-free for years now but I did occassionally still use them just to make things look 'right' and just didn't let them eat the colored parts. I have a goal now of not using them for any more cakes and stretching my creativity a bit. This time I tried an all cream motif, which I rather liked. I also needed to make this one as simple as possible for my own sake as we battled illness in the house and had a guest in town! I can't say I was super motivated to do this one but guilted myself into it since the other boys had had a fancy cake...can't let the little guy feel slighted, y'know :)
At some point, I'll post the birthday cake rundown, which has required a whole lot more creativity. They have been a lot of fun! Hope you're having a wonderful day!Pin It
