Two of my grandchildren were baptized this past December 2016. They were baptized with their friend Seth. It was a beautiful service and such an enjoyable Sabbath.
For this cake I made chocolate cake. I used a box mix because I didn't have time to mess with a cake from scratch. I made four rectangle cakes and froze them. While I had time I went to You Tube and watched how others put a book together. I wanted this to be open. I used a chocolate ganache filling.
I put the two layers together and then carved the book shape and covered each side with fondant. The lace book mark ribbon is edible lace on top of a black strip of fondant. I used the Russian Icing Tips for the flowers. It's the first time using them. I do like them but I think I need more practice.
The "pages" are painted with luster dust mixed with vodka. The vodka evaporates and sets the color on the fondant. I had wrote the words but next time I think I will use a smaller round tip. All in all it turned out pretty good.
