Nothing brings us cake makers more joy than seeing the expression on someones face when you give them a celebration cake decorated just for them.
When you make a cake for someone you love that joy triples.
Bless my little Theo, he loved is Noah’s Ark Christening cake.
I know a Noah’s ark cake isn’t the most original christening cake, but it is definitely the most fitting and the little animals are so cute.
Making the Ark
There are a few ways you can make the foundation of the ark, either cake, rice crispy treats or my way, always the easiest
Always keep any polystyrene you get in packaging, it always comes in useful. This time I bought the sphere from hobby craft and cut it in half, then cut a rectangle block for the middle.
The best thing about using this method is it lasts, I always like my cake toppers to be keep sakes for people.
I kept the blue theme running right through to the side of the cake, by making a favourite flavour of mine…who doesn’t love a blueberry cake!
My favourite Blueberry cake recipe is from the Hummingbird Bakery book. If you don’t have the book, I would 100% recommend it to you. The cakes recipes in their are divine and really easy to follow.
Obviously this picture is taken after we ate one of the tiers. I do love how one tier is just as impressive! I’m a firm believe of less is more.
This Noah’s Ark Cake can be adapted to a little girl or boys celebration. Its ideal for baby shower cakes, Christening Cakes or 1st Birthday cakes.
