Light Pink Christening Cake

This cake is all about the subtlety. It was made for a baby's Christening and was iced in very light pink buttercream.

I decorated it using white fondant pressed into a lace mold, some buttercream dots & crosses, a hand-made name plaque, and a hand-made gum paste bow topper.

It's subtly feminine and baby-ish while still giving impressions of maturity, elegance, and the importance of the event it celebrates.
