I have an order for a baptism cake, and they sent this photo in to me, which I then found on Pink Cake Box's site. I think it's gorgeous as is, but am wondering how to make it unique without changing it too much. I want to give the customer what they want, without being a complete copy cat. icon_redface.gif


Thanks for your ideas! Oh, and it will just be a standard 6 inch round.

You could put a giant bow on top & the cross on the front side...

wish I could help...but the design is so simple and elegant, I honestly can't visualize anything else! I suppose you could make the cross a different bow. Use tiny pink flowers instead of the dots...I don't know. That's all I can think of, and that's not much! Good luck!

I like quilted sides. Not too small though. Maybe your customer would like it. I like the cakes here. Maybe it will give you an idea. She does lots of quilted sides.

Maybe add a white cake board with pink ribbon around the edge. Once you remove that cake from the rose colored plate, it will look different, IMO. I like the idea of changing the cross. You can still make a simple cross, and keep it elegant. Good luck.

Change the design of the cross. Look thru the gallery they have good samples.

instead of the cross on top you can put a picture of the baby and make the dots a little bigger from the sides

I think all it needs is a more ornate cross made ahead out of gumpaste or fondant.... and then you could maybe add some short little ribbons coming out of the bow. Otherwise I'd pretty much keep it as-is, really....unless the customer wanted it much different.

Oh you guys are lots of help, thank you!! I'll browse for some different cross ideas... but I might do little pink flowers for it, I like that idea. I'm tempted to quilt the sides too now, although I've never done it before!

What about making the cross out of white chocolate with a candy mold. I buy white chocolate crosses at a cake store one because they are only 1.00 and you can't beat the price. Has a nice pattern and they brush the cross with pearl luster dust.
