Abelito’s Baptism Cake

Posted on May 17th, 2010 in Cakes, Cookies

A very special cake for an even more special little boy’s baptism.

One of my best friends and Godmother of my Lillie had her son, Abel baptised last Saturday. I had the honor of making the cake for this celebration. The top and bottom tiers of the cake are tropical white cake with pineapple, toasted walnuts and coconut. The filling is buttercream and I also added a thin layer of apricot preserves to enhance the flavor. The middle tier is an orange cake with fresh orange zest and our classic buttercream filling.  Here’s the cake.

You can’t see it, but I added some chocolate crosses around the top tier. I bought the little baby (Precious Moments).

We also made him some  Thank You favors. Delicious chocolate covered Oreos with a monogram.

If you see closely, you might notice that the ribbon has the baby’s name and date of the baptism. I loved that idea!

You want to guess how many cookies my mom made?
