My eldest, my baby girl had her first holy communion this month. She looked so angelic walking up to the altar dressed up in white to receive Jesus for the very first time. She was so anxious and full of excitement! And yes of course seated along with the other mums and dads we were more thrilled than her!
Her dress was a simple white gown with lace and pearls on the top so we thought we'd add some of that on to her cake. Thus we made the 2nd tier with a lace effect and added edible pearls to complete the look. The top tier well I wanted to try the edible leaf. She wore a silver tiara and silver accessories including her 'sparkly' shoes (she calls them) So hence I went with the silver effect. It was a completely new level for me something I loved playing with ;) Each leaf comes covered with a non stick paper on both sides that way its protected as this leaf can be really sticky if you're not careful.
Alright! So moving on to the floating chalice...cool right?! When we first tried it out my kids were like, 'Whoa!' 'How?!' 'Magic' we said to them....heh heh...
I've seen some Levitating cakes on the internet they look amazing floating in midair. We actually wanted to make the whole tier but then changed our mind. Probably invest in that later on. So we focused on the chalice instead and it worked. Its all about a 'First Holy Communion' after all isn't it?!
I didn't make way too many goodies, just what you can see on the table. The reason I've always stuck to making and selling cakes and cupcakes is because they're much easier. The cake pops I've always hated to make coz they're too fiddly and macarons? Well that was the second time I had made them and honestly as everyone says, 'They're too finicky'. They taste awesome but a big NO to putting that on my menu.
The main cake was lemon drizzled sponge filled with vanilla buttercream.
The cupcakes were red velvet with cream cheese frosting.
The cake pops were chocolate.
And the macarons were bubble gum flavour (I knoww... my daughter's choice, couldn't say no)
