Christening Cakes

Mark your child’s christening with a cake as special as the occasion itself. Whether you prefer a simple and elegant design or a more elaborate creation, a christening cake serves as a sweet centerpiece for this joyous celebration. 

Personalise your cake with delicate decorations like crosses, doves, or the baby’s name and date of birth. Or, opt for a modern twist with pastel colors, floral accents, or whimsical designs.

What Kind of Christening Cake Should I Choose?

Choosing a christening cake is a delightful step in celebrating this special occasion. A classic choice is a tiered cake adorned with delicate decorations like crosses or doves to symbolise the religious significance of the event. For a more whimsical touch, consider a cake embellished with adorable baby booties or cuddly teddy bear.

If you prefer a modern aesthetic, a simple yet elegant cake with clean lines and subtle embellishments like delicate sugar flowers can be a stunning centrepiece. Alternatively, a charming cake decorated with a carousel or rocking horse can capture the innocence and joy of childhood.

Christening cakes for girls

Christening cakes for girls come in a wide variety of styles and designs, making it easy to find one that perfectly matches the theme of your celebration. You could go for a fairytale-themed cake, such as one inspired by Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, or Belle.

Consider soft, pastel hues like blush pink or lavender, adorned with delicate sugar flowers, or even a miniature cross. If you’re looking for a more modern twist, minimalist designs with clean lines and a single statement flower are a popular choice. 

Don’t forget to consider your daughter’s favourite colours, animals, or storybook characters for a truly personalised touch that will make her christening cake extra special.

Christening cakes for boys

For a boy’s christening, a cake can be a sweet symbol of faith and celebration. Classic choices include shades of blue, adorned with traditional cross symbols or delicate sugar booties.

Playful options might feature a Noah’s Ark motif, complete with fondant animals, or a charming teddy bear.

A nautical theme with anchors and sailboats is also a popular choice, representing safe passage through life.

What size christening cake should I get?

The size of your christening cake is a delicate balance between guest count and dessert preferences. A modest cake will satisfy a smaller, intimate gathering, while a larger one ensures ample slices for a grand celebration.

Consider whether the cake is the sole dessert or if it’s part of a dessert spread, as this will influence your decision.

Generally, assume 1-2 servings per person, but factor in whether you’re offering larger or smaller slices.

Remember, a christening cake is a symbol of joy and celebration, so choose a size that allows everyone to partake in the sweetness of this special occasion!
