Baptism Cake Templates
With American folder
American paste is an increasingly frequent coverage option, and the advantage of this type of coating is that it can be exposed without the risk of melting and still allows for beautiful models!
In this proposal for an American pasta cake, the bet was for a small and simple model. The main dessert was decorated with blue American pasta and had a little angel on top.
With whipped cream / frosting
Topping can also be whipped cream or frosting. These options are cheaper than American paste, but require more care when left on the table for a long time, as they are not as heat resistant and can melt.
In this proposal for a cake decorated with whipped cream, there is a mix of blue and white icing. The decoration on the top is made with a decorative angel and chantilly details.
with rice paper
If you are not very skilled at decorating the christening cake, a simple and easy alternative is to use rice paper to decorate the top of the candy. There are several models, including personalized versions, that follow the baptism theme and that can be used in the cake decoration.
For the decoration of this baptism cake, the bet was to use a personalized rice paper and decorate the candy in white and blue, following the colors of the rice paper design.
In EVA (fake)
A nice and inexpensive alternative to decorating the main table is to use a fake cake. The most common is the EVA cake, which can be made at home or even rented at a specialized store. This way, you will have a beautiful cake for the photos and you can serve a simpler version.
In this fake EVA cake model, the idea was to use an all white model and decorated with pearls and satin ribbon. Another detail is the little angel, also made of EVA, which decorates the cake.
In book form (Bible)
The shape of the cake can also vary, and among the options, an idea that goes beyond the traditional is the baptism cake in the shape of a Bible. The form is fully related to the ceremony and enhances the main table.
For this cake, the format used was an open book that was decorated with the child’s name and a little angel. The decoration and coverage were made with American paste.
If the intention is to make a cake that is decorated with religious elements, one of the ideas is to use a rosary, which can be used only for decorating, or an edible model, which can be made in American paste or sugar confectionery.
For this christening cake, the idea was to make a model in pink and white and with two floors and the edible third was used to decorate the top of the dessert.
The little angels are also great proposals to decorate the candy and even serve as a theme for the baptism party decoration. Among the possibilities to decorate the cake with angels, it is worth:
- Use edible angels made from sugar or american paste;
- Add an angel-shaped cake topper.
In this proposal for the cake decorated with an angel, the idea was to make a 3-story model in American paste and use a simple angel, also made of American paste, which decorates the top of the dessert.
The flower decoration is a classic and can be used for both a girl’s and a boy’s christening cake. Flowers can be made in different sizes and shapes to match the size and style of the cake.
In this idea of a christening cake, the bet was to cover the entire candy with yellow American paste, and the small white flowers were used to decorate the first floor and compose the cross that decorates the top of the candy.
with little sheep
The sheep theme is one of the options for decorating the baptism, as the animal is related to religion and symbolizes the Christian followers of Christ. This meaning can also be included in the cake and the sheep can get a more childlike look to decorate the christening party.
The base of this cake was the icing in American paste and all white. To bring the theme of the sheep, the bet was to add the sheep at the top and some smaller ones at the base of the cake.
With Dove (Holy Spirit)
Among the ideas to bring a religious symbolism to the christening cake is the decoration with a dove, a symbol that represents the Holy Spirit and the Holy Trinity.
In the decoration of this cake, the bet was for the coverage in American paste and the composition of blue and white. The white dove that symbolizes the Holy Spirit appears in several details of the cake – medals around the first floor; doves decorating the second floor and on top of cake.
with teddy bears
If the idea is to choose a children’s theme for the christening party, one of the suggestions is to use teddy bears as a theme; and also include them in the cake decoration.
For this cake, the idea was to use a mix of soft colors – blue, white and lilac. The decoration of the candy was made with the teddy bear on top holding a cross, which refers to one of the religious symbols.
The lace effect is also one of the options for decorating the cake. This effect can be done using the lace itself to decorate the cake, or decorating the American paste with this lace effect.
In this proposal to cover the baptism cake, the idea was to use American paste and recreate the details of the lace. The result was beautiful!
If the idea is to highlight the cake and even add a more sophisticated touch to the dessert, it’s worth including gold as one of the cake colors.
For the decoration of this christening cake, the bet was for the coverage of white American paste and details decorated in gold, such as the ribbon between the layers and the rosary that decorates the top of the candy.
Choosing a cake is no longer easy, but if you have twins the task can seem even more complicated. The proposal is to use a cake just for the two children, and for that reason, it’s worth using a model with neutral colors and it’s even worth including the children’s names on the cake.
In this model used for the couple of twins, the idea was to make a small cake covered with white American paste and decorated with a third and the children’s names.
simple and cheap
If the intention is to contain expenses and use a simple cake for the christening party, there are several options that fit this aspect very well. For this, avoid models that are too large and full of details, which usually make the candy more expensive.
One of the proposals for the simple and beautiful christening cake is the naked cake model, which is very popular. In this case, the cake was made with light dough and white fillings and the decorative plaque on top decorates and refers to the baptism.
