Red and White Communion Cake

Posted on May 9th, 2013 in Cakes, Other Sweet Treats

It that time of the year when we start celebrating First Communions. I have a cake for you that helped my client celebrate such a memorable occasion.

I don’t often get to work on square cakes. Round cakes are simply more popular than square cakes so this was a good opportunity to work on a different shape.

This First Communion cake features a chalice, a cross with piped detail, a rosary and a monogram for the celebrated boy.

This chalice is entirely made out of chocolate and it sits on top of the cake. I used a chocolate mold to create this piece. We also featured a marbled fondant cross in ivory and white colors. I piped on the edges and added a sparkle in the center.

One of my favorite pieces is the edible rosary made out of fondant. I have to admit, I didn’t make this. My mom makes them by hand all the time. There are gum paste molds out there that can help you make this type of confection. I have tried them before, but I use them for other type of decorations. When it comes to the rosaries, I prefer the way my mom makes them which is one little bead at a time.

The bottom tier of the cake features a quilt pattern. Quilting a cake is a beautiful way to finish a cake. There is a sparkling gem on each intersection of the design. I went with a non-edible gem for extra shine.  A name plaque was also added to the center of the cake.

The rosary is never attached to the finished cake until it is ready to be presented at a table. I like to place them as part of the topper, but it can certainly be place anywhere on the cake.

The cake is covered in a home made fondant. Cake flavors included a very moist red velvet cake and cream cheese buttercream frosting and white cake with dulce de leche buttercream filling.

Many blessing Nicholas.

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

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…

1st Communion Cake

Posted on May 4th, 2010 in Cakes

We designed a special cake for a 1st Communion celebration for an 8 year old boy. Cathy (his mom), sent me a picture of a cake she had seen and I gladly said I would love to work on it for them. Here’s the suggested cake.

Pink Cake Box Cake

Here’s our cake. The bottom round cake is strawberry butter cake with strawberry buttercream.

The bible is made out of rice cereal and covered in fondant. My mom made the rosary out of fondant, she really enjoys making them.

Cathy also handed me a napkin with a beautiful design that I decided to incorporate into the entire cake.

Here’s are words from Cathy, “Everyone is amazed!  We haven’t cut it yet, but everyone thinks it’s too pretty to eat.”
