Buttercream Christening cake perfect for your big day?

There’s a lot that goes into planning your baby’s big day.  Christenings bring our family and friends together as we introduce baby to the world.  Those initial sleep deprived first days eventually pass and we can think toward our baby’s first milestones.  The Christening Day is often the first big occasion since baby’s birth that brings family together.  Our celebrations need some planning from the church to choosing God-Parents to the catering and guest list it can be a challenging time for parents.  And that’s not even including the planning of baby’s outfit!!!! Will we use Great Granny’s christening robe that she’s been keeping safe in the attic for 50 years recently discovered in a spring clean? or Aunt Susan’s crocheted robe she made from Mother in Law’s pattern while travelling around Europe and now she’s back home ???   The pressure to please can be daunting !!!

Let us take the pressure out of the decision for the perfect Christening Cake.  As experts Thunders Bakery will offer and recommend the perfect cake for your celebration.  You can go choose from a variety of flavours including white sponge, chocolate sponge and red velvet.   This range of Buttercream Christening Cakes are finished, as standard, with a white iced top and an accent colour for the piping and message.  We also offer a choice of edible and non edible baby accessories to compliment your cake.   Our ‘Baby in a blanket’ is hand made with edible icing and comes a choice of colours.  Our ‘baby booties’ are not edible and make for a lovely keepsake for the Christening Day.

When should I order my cake for?
