Sophie's Christening

A few weeks ago, we had Sophie's Christening and I wanted to share a few pictures with you all.

I was really worried about not having anything to fit me so I ordered my dress of Need That Look, I really love this dress, it fitted so well and the fabric is stretchy which made the dress so comfortable.I paired it with which black tights because the day itself was quite cold and wet.

Since I love baking I decided to do Sophie's cake myself. I wanted to forget about fondant and use buttercream. I wanted simple but elegant.I choose a vanilla sponge with pink buttercream filling and iced all over in bright white buttercream. I then decorated with pink and white non pareils. For her name I printed out her name in a font I liked and put in under baking paper. I then tinted white chocolate with pink and painted over her name. It turned out so well and will definitely use this trick again.

I also really wanted cupcakes, but I knew I wouldn't have time to do them myself. I turned to cake genius Agatha from Cakefield Avenue.I choose mini cupcakes, half malteaser and half vanilla with pink buttercream.Agatha was a dream to order from, she is so lovely and I'd definitely reccomend using her for a special occasion.

I also did a sweet table for the kids (and adults) which completely vanished before I had a chance to take a picture. I did manage a picture of the menu. I decided to do a menu rather than having to fiddle around putting labels on the jars.
