Beautiful Baptism Cakes - Ideas and Simple Recipes You Could Explore
Are you seeking ideas and inspiration for baptism cakes?
One of the most important days in the life of a Christian is the day he or she is baptized. Baptism is a rite of passage in the spiritual journey for most Christians and is a day of celebration for the path they have taken.
When christening a new baby, you will want to celebrate the occasion with family and friends by hosting a reception. The first thing you need to consider when planning your reception is the number of guests you expect to serve. This will help determine the size of cake you wish to have at your reception. Baptism cakes come in a variety of sizes and flavors.
One option to consider is baptism cupcakes. Cupcakes are rapidly gaining a reputation as a good cake standard for receptions. Each one is an individual serving and can be personalized. You can use personalized cupcake picks including the name of the person baptized and the date of the special event. Other options are placing crosses or angels on the top of each cupcake.
If you want to go with a large baptism cake rather than individual cupcakes, there are many options available. One is a "Bible" cake. You can purchase an "open book" cake pan at most craft stores. Using the open book cake pan, prepare a cake mix following package instructions and bake in the specialty pan. Once the cake is baked and completely cooled, use the following butter cream icing recipe to prepare the perfect decorator icing.
To prepare butter cream icing, fold 1/2 cup margarine and 1/2 cup vegetable shortening together until they are completely blended, add one teaspoon vanilla flavoring and blend. Slowly add 4 cups confectioners' sugar until completely blended. Add 2 tablespoons milk to make the icing creamier. This will yield three cups of white icing.
Use food coloring or cake icing coloring to color portions of the icing to use for writing or putting trim on the cake. Completely frost the cake with white icing. Using a decorator tip, add trim to the outside edges of the cake. On one side of the "book", you can add scripture. On the other side, you can write the name and date of the baptism.
One good verse to include on your "Bible" cake comes from the book of Matthew, "Confessing their sins, they were baptized by him in the Jordan River." Another verse to consider is from the book of Mark, "I baptize you with water, but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit." Whatever verse you choose, you will make a memorable baptism cake to celebrate this special day.
Another option for baptism cakes is a cake in the shape of a cross. As with the open book cake pan, you can also purchase a cross cake pan at most craft stores. Prepare and bake a cake mix following the directions.
Using the butter cream icing recipe above, you can frost and decorate your baptism cake in the way that you wish. One option is to put the name and date of the person baptized on the cross pieces with a short scripture verse down the middle of the cake.
A baptism is a very special time. It marks a deeper commitment in the life path of a Christian. A reception with a well made baptism cake will help everyone important in the person's life share in this wonderful experience.
