Hello everyone,
I've just been asked to make a cake for a 12 yr. old boy who is doing his Catholic Confirmation and will have around 40-50 guests.

I have no idea what is usually done for this occassions, neither does my client.


Thank you,

Here's one I did last weekend.

Also doves (holy spirit) is another common theme for Confirmation cakes.

i always think a bible is a nice way to go, and especially for a boy- it would be easier if it were a girl- i'd recommend roses and such. or you could do a cross. go do a search on here under either baptism or confirmation ( i think it's under celebration cakes) that might help you start to get some ideas. maybe a fbct of praying hands.

this is one of my bussiest "holidays" being from a catholic town my most ordered cake for confirmation is the large square cake (forgot the actual size) with the wilton cross cake on top at an angle. i usually cover the cross in fondant and either BC or cream cheese icing for the square cake then add flowers on the cross "falling" onto the square cake.
i added a pic, i actually made this for my niece's baptism but it gives the idea of what i tried to expain above lol

I am doing a confirmation (16 year old girl) and first communion cake (her 7 year old brother) soon and just ordered a candy melt mold set from sugarcraft that will assemble into a 3D church on the top. I think it was $4.50
