Like traditional Wedding Cakes, A Christening Cake was usually a fruit cake base, topped with marzipan, white icing, trimmed with Pink or Blue, Then a Stork, a Baby or Icing Flowers as a topper.

However, the modern Christening Cake, calls for a contemporary twist on the traditional cake. The fruit cake base is now more likely to be a sponge, white is often replaced with colour(s) and cute cake topper.
