Elsie's Christening Cake

I had a break with my cake making at the end of the year as I had my hands full with my little girl Elsie, who arrived safely in October. I finally got to make a cake when we had her christened this January.

I decided to revisit a cake topper that I had made for my first ever christening cake - the rocking horse. I loved this horse the first time I made it, so I chose to use it as a feature on Elsie's cake. 

I really like the pastel colours that are in at the moment as well as the bunting. It's such a lovely theme that  I couldn't help but add it to my daughter's cake.

The bottom tier had vertical stripes made from the same pastel purple that was used on the top tier. I used a lovely plaque cutter (Orchard P2) for her name to go on.

A rarity for my cakes - a picture of me (and Steve) cutting it!
