Cakes for confirmation ceremonies allow for plenty of creative expression. These cakes honor the Christian sacrament of confirmation by featuring symbols like crosses or doves to represent its celebration; additionally, these cakes can include information such as the date and name of their confirmation ceremony.
Sweet Bloom’s doile lace design above left, and a soft pink shell with framed details below right are two lovely confirmation cake ideas with beautiful lace patterns and shiny silver details that would look perfect when combined with their stylish little boy and girl toppers below right.
Doyle lace design
This sophisticated doile lace design makes a striking Communion or Confirmation cake design suitable for girls and boys alike. Sweet Bloom Cake Studio has used the technique to craft their angelic little communion girl cake topper (above left), while Karla Chumpitaz from Sweet K Cake Design used it to create an exquisite little communion girl model (above right). An easy and stunning way to transform any plain frosted cake is with a beautiful lace design underneath! All it requires is a doily or piece of lace fabric (paper is also acceptable) perforated enough to allow sugar through, powdered sugar or cocoa powder, and a sieve. Once your cake has been baked and cooled down, place the doily over its top and lift gently from underneath for an intricate design.
Pearl encrusted cross
Pearl-encrusted crosses make an elegant touch for communion or confirmation cakes, with edible lace designs working beautifully as decorative elements and even your little girl’s communion dress being used as the cake topper – as Karla Chumpitaz of Sweet K Cake Design did for her first holy communion toppers cake (left). Fabulous quilled cake designs such as those by Cake & Cupboard (above left) and Alka’s Creations (below suitable) provide great extra flourishes to these celebration cakes, adding that finishing touch – they do not just need to look pretty; they add flair!
Instead, why not opt for something simple like Sweet Bloom’s pearl rosary on a cross adorned with silver details, as seen below left, or The White Cakery’s design on the right? Both cakes would make lovely additions to a first communion or confirmation celebration and are an ideal candidate for use as a christening cake.
Baptism cakes are created to commemorate the Christian sacrament of baptism. These cakes may feature religious symbols like crosses or doves, wheat and grapes to represent Communion bread and wine, or an image of Jesus himself. You may even opt to have your baptismal font and child’s name written on it! To add another festive note.
Little boy and girl toppers
Little boy and girl toppers make the ideal finishing touches for communion cakes or confirmation cake ideas. Edible lace adds the final flourish on Karen Keaney of Roses & Bows Cakery’s adorable communion girl model shown below, while another angelic little girl model by Andrea’s Sweet Cakes can be seen adorning the stylish lavender damask cake below right.
Boys’ designs often incorporate an elegant gilded cross with pearl rosary beads for an added sleek touch, like in this stylish pale blue design by Sweet Bloom on the left or this luxurious shell pink design by Verusca Walker on the right. Additionally, an adorable communion boy makes an attractive model for these amazing quilled cakes by Karla Chumpitaz of Sweet K Cake Design or this striking lavender damask design by Cake & Cupboard that showcases their top model’s top design or cameo side design features!
Gigi’s Custom Cakes provides this elegant “God Bless” topper as an ideal finishing touch to a first communion or confirmation cake, and you can personalize it free of charge with your child’s name. Printed on premium-quality 320gsm matt photo card for superior quality printing and equipped with an easy food-grade pick for placement within your cake, the topper makes a lovely keepsake to mark this momentous milestone in their lives.
Mannequin and dressing table
Little girls look forward to their first communion and often see it as a mini wedding, complete with wearing an exquisite white dress. Karla Chumpitaz’s beautiful mannequin dressing table cake design would be a gorgeous finishing touch on any communion or confirmation cake for girls; similarly, Roses and Bows Cakery’s stunning fondant model would add another lovely element. Both designs would also work perfectly as Christening cakes! Hada Straviesas offers adorable toppers, such as cute little boy toppers or angelic little girl toppers, which would add the final touch for boys or girls celebrating communion/confirmation alike!
Lavish dessert table
Create an eye-catching dessert table by featuring a selection of petite sweets arranged in an eye-catching arrangement. This will offer guests more choices while being more cost-effective than a large cake. Personalized touch: Incorporate desserts inspired by family or cultural specialties for added personalization; finally, add fruit displays for an elegant and colorful finish!
Display Dessert Strategically: Make dessert easier for guests to locate by grouping them by type – for instance, cupcakes together, cookies in one area, and petite pastries in another – making the search for their dessert much quicker and reducing wait times. Labels or chalkboards can help clearly identify each dessert.
Accent Your Table with Additional Decor Elements: Select decorative elements that complement the theme of your wedding and enhance its atmosphere by including ornamental greenery, ribbons, paper products, candles, and fairy lights for added warmth and coziness.
No matter if it’s a bridal shower, wedding reception, or baby shower – creating a dessert table is an effective way to set the theme of any event! From classic chocolate cakes and fresh lemon treats, desserts will impress guests at your next celebration!
