First Communion Crosses – Saints

Posted on June 14th, 2014 in Cookies

May is the month for First Communions. This year I worked on a a few orders one of them being my daughter’s Holy Eucharist (well, I can’t count that as an order).

This set of cookies were made for a little group of boys from St. Francis of Assisi who play baseball and were celebrating their First Communion. The name of their team is the “Saints”.

The request called for a combination of grey, gold and black which were the colors of the uniforms and the name of the team included on the cookie. It was hard to envision a cross cookie with such deep colors. I knew I couldn’t make a black cross… and I couldn’t make it brown (like wood). Gold I thought was too deep, so my last choice was grey. I wasn’t too convinced, but I gave it a shot.

This particular cross mold doesn’t make a big cookie, so putting the name of the team on the cross was a little bit tough. By the way, writing on cookies and making eyes are my… lets say, nightmare. I have lost so many cookie doing that.

I knew the name would be in gold, but cookies still look too sad… too dark. Although adding a chalice and host was not part of the plan, I thought it would make the cookies a little bit brighter. I loved how they turned out!!!  I finished the cookies by brushing the chalice with gold luster dust to add shine to them.

I received wonderful comments about the cookies and that made my day.

More Religious Treats…

Posted on May 8th, 2011 in Cakes, Other Sweet Treats

The next two cakes were prepared for the same client for a First Communion and Confirmation celebrations that were held on different days. The cakes are simple, but they make an impact.

This first cake is for a lovely girl. It is a fondant covered cross cake embossed with a flower design, adorned with small white and lavender flowers and topped with a beautiful real Lily flower.

The cake is Chocolate Butter cake with vanilla cream frosting.

You might be able t see the flower design on the cake a bit better here.

That day, my house had a mixed smell of cake and Lily flowers. I didn’t complain, it was delicious and beautiful.

The second cake is also a simple cake and elegant cake in colors appropriate for a boy.  My client wanted the cake to be decorated with a cross and in her request, she mentioned and/or possibly a rosary (so of course… we gladly kept that in mind when making the cake).

Inside the cake we have a White Butter Cake with Chocolate buttercream frosting. As opposed to the first cake, this one is covered in buttercream.

The cross is made out of chocolate and my mom created the rosary (she is amazing with them). You probably can’t see it , but the rosary’s beads have this beautiful shine to it that made it look very realistic.

My client was very happy with the extra detail on the cake and was pleased overall. I really loved the cake.

Communion Treats

Posted on May 8th, 2011 in Cupcakes, Other Sweet Treats

First Communions and Confirmations are happening now everywhere and that is always a very happy occasion to celebrate. I was glad to prepare treats for a few people from my church, St. Francis of Assisi. Here are some of them.

The follwing cupcakes are for a little girl that is not too much into ‘cake’, but she was more than happy to try my Red Velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting.

The cupcakes are topped with a small white chocolate lavander & white cross.

We also prepared a platter of cake balls in White/Caramel cake with Dulce de Leche buttercream mixed. Some of the were covered in chocolate and some with a sugar glaze.

More first communion treats are coming…
