Anyone who knows us will be pretty aware of our love for unicorns. This cutie with her blush and bubblegum pink mane, golden hooves and sweet little smile was definitely no exception. Perched on top of a fun two tier Christening cake surrounded with golden confetti, polka dots and bunting she was ready for Grace’s Christening!
Cute unicorn Christening cake!
The top blush pink tier was trimmed with edible fondant bunting in white with hand-painted polka dots, bubblegum pink and golden fondant finished with a tiny bow. Each bunting ‘flag’ is rolled out thin, measured and cut individually and then left to set with a slight curve at the tip. This is so they can look like they have a little movement and lightness to them. Once attached we then added the painted elements!
The unicorn Christening cake itself was our popular Classic Strawberry flavour (aka Victoria Sponge). It is fluffy vanilla cake filled with our fruity strawberry preserve and creamy Madagascan vanilla bean buttercream. Definitely a crowd pleaser! We love that the flavour matches the outside too
Golden confetti and polka dots just scream fun. Maybe we’re biased (just look at our logo…), but we absolutely love them. For this cute cake the golden elements help transform it into something sweet AND on-trend. Obviously, we love to add gold features onto a cake. The plain white bottom tier needed a little something so a flurry of gold painted polka dots were added. Then a variety of gold fondant confetti pieces were added on top of each tier, around the blush pink board and on top of the alphabet blocks spelling out Grace’s name!
Just another up-close shot of that pretty in pink unicorn! She’s too cute! We like to make every fondant character a little different so that everyone has a something completely unique. For this one we added a golden painted muzzle instead of the usual pastel type. We also used two different tones of pink (a blush and a bubblegum), grouped them and then twisted her hair into shape.
We hope Grace and her family had an amazing day at her Christening!
