To celebrate the christening of her little girl, Giuliana, Penny ordered these pink and white christening cupcakes. In keeping with the colour scheme I did vanilla cupcakes with a creamy vanilla icing, strawberry cupcakes with a pastel pink strawberry icing and chocolate cupcakes with a light midnight velvet chocolate icing. The sugar paste flowers were embossed and layered and then topped with the initial G for Giuliana. I finished the G with a small sugar paste blossom button. On the single embossed flowers I put small moulded babies feet to represent the journey Giuliana’s feet will soon embark on as she grows into a little girl. To signify the religious importance of this celebration I moulded crosses from sugar paste and finished them with a small white rose.
I love my new jem cutter easy rose and I made some pink roses and placed these either singly on the iced cupcakes or some in a white embossed flower. For a contrast to the larger decorations I made small daisies and blossoms for the remaining cupcakes and the overall effect of all these decorations and the sugar pearls was really pretty. Congratulations Penny to you and your family on your daughter’s Christening and may she bring much joy and laughter into your lives.
How pretty! I wish I could have another little girl all over again just to have cupcakes like these! Well done.
Thanks Tracy, it is always fun to do themes for little girls!
So gorgeous – I love the cross!
Thanks Wendy, it reminded me of a celtic cross, I think that is why it appealed to me too.
