Pink and gold carousel cupcakes
Our carousel cupcakes may be a little bit of a wildcard for Christening celebrations but they’re definitely a fun one! The white, pink and gold hues make for a vibrant, eye catching finale for any child’s special day. The best thing about this design is that it can easily be adapted to fit almost any celebration and in any color! Why not re-create these as birthday, anniversary or wedding treats by playing around with color palettes, different piping techniques or even flat iced cupcakes.

Elephant ruffle cake
This cute and playful cake was a joy to make and would fit in perfectly at any Christening. Changing the color of the ears, bow and balloon would make for a quick customization meaning this cake is perfect for other celebrations too! Why not turn this cake into a sweet little baby shower cake by replacing the elephant on top with a stalk or a pair of cute baby shoes.

Teddy Christening cupcakes
These are definitely cute as a cupcake! Adorning Christening themed cupcakes with miniature handmade bows is such a simple but effective idea. Just look at the sweet little striped bows above finished fondant buttons and bears!

Pink ruffle Christening cake
How adorable is that bunny! The floral detailing, soft pink color palette and delicate ruffles make this cake perfect for spring and summer Christening celebrations. We adore the delicate lace and handmade sugar flower. The best thing about this fun cake is that you add a great personal touch with a fondant replica of the child’s favorite toy ready to adorn the top tier.

Sweet Christening cake with swiss dots
Featuring the baby’s name on their Christening cake is a lovely idea and it works perfectly here. The sweet cutout love hearts and swiss dots really pin point the attention to detail on this cake. We love how the spray of sugar flowers and leaves add a little touch of color to the otherwise pretty little white cake.
