I don't consider myself to be very traditional...at least not when it comes to cake decorating. (I have little confidence in my ability to do consistent shell borders and make a frosted cake look like glass.) But getting an order for a baptismal sheet cake is pretty traditional. And for a person who could decorate her own cake if she had the time (and with four kids I imagine there's very little of that to go around)...well the bar was set. I tried to put my own modern spin on it and I actually liked the border I decided to add last min. Even the writing (ahh!) didn't turn out half bad. So see. I can do cakes after all. ;)
Pretty writing and a white chocolate shell - the symbol of baptism.
By the way, this is what a cake is SUPPOSED to look like when you turn the pan - UNlike the first time I tried!
