Well here is my first show and tell.

I used the recipe for the Deep chocolate passion cake.  It tasted amazing.  I really wanted a dark sponge to compliment the white icing.  I wanted a white cake for a joint christening.  My 3 year old son and my 13 week old daughter.

Hope you enjoy the pictures.

WeeGem, congratulations. Beautiful job on the cake! I’m impressed and amazed that you made the christening cake yourself when you gave birth only 13 weeks ago! They’re very lucky kids!

WeeGem, thanks so much for sharing this with us!  It’s a lovely cake, and I bet the chocolate was delicious.  What did you use for the buttercream?

Your children are exquisite, such beautiful photos, clothes, kids- everything!  And yes, I’m also amazed that you made this cake so soon after your daughter was born!

Thank you all.  The cake was a big hit.  It was a little hectic making it with a young baby who wanted to be fed non stop.  But very enjoyable.

I used plain flour from our local health food shop.  My options at the supermarket a slightly limited.  Regalice was used for the cake and board.  Which i covered in an edible pearl lustre spray.  Butter icing with vanilla essence for the middle.  Everything was edible except the topper.  I ordered that on line.  I thought i could keep it as a keepsake, maybe they will use it in years to come.

The sponge was so delicious.  So i plan on trying the lacquer glaze very very soon.

I have always been good at the baking.  But i only started experimenting with sugar paste this year.  My first cake was for my 7 year old daughters birthday.  Then Williams 3rd birthday cake.
