Christening Cake

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi

I have been asked to make the following christening cake (see photo below).

It is a square 2 tier cake, and she would like it to feed roughly 40 people using sponge (maderia), can someone advise what size cakes would be best to make?

Also, what colours would you use to do the poka dots, they look very metalic to me.

Anyone any suggestions how to make the teddy also and what colour to use?

Thanks, Sarah

A six-inch (12 servings) plus a nine-inch (32 servings) tier will give you 44 servings, according to Wilton. Do the teddy bear and the silver polka dots in light grey fondant/gumpaste and dust them with silver luster dust (there are several shades available, so pick the one you like the best. You can also paint on the luster dust dissolved in some everclear, vodka or other clear liquid with a high alcohol content.
