3 tiered Christening cake (my pride and Joy)

I was so proud of this cake... Spent many late night on
it making all the decorations.  As much as I loved it when it
was finished and didnt want to see it go.... It scared me half to death as well as it was the first time I had ever made 3 tiers and fully iced with fondant ! It was also the first time i had to have boards on all 3 levels, hidden supports and a centre dowell 
through all 3 tiers to stop it sliding.  Was a little unsure but had researched it over and over to make sure I was doing it all correct.... Now it will be fine, was scary but i did it !!! and I loved the end result ! 

Three girls from the one family were being christened. All different ages and different likes, Mum came to me with some ideas and we worked together to come up with what you see. 
Baby booties, Princess and Horses... I then tied them together with the three different sized flowers to represent their ages (large for the eldest, medium for the middle child and baby ones for the little baby) When mum came to pick it up she nearly cried ! Was the most amazing feeling !

  2. Hi Kelly and thanks :) I use the white irridesent glitter. i mix a small amount and then add some water to it (not much just a couple of drops) then I paint the model with it. Hope this helps :)
