When you are hosting a party or ceremony, you want to end it on a sweet note for your guests. Baptism events are no different. Baptism cakes are symbolic of all baptism events and a must have. The cake symbolizes the body of Christ as shared in Holy Communion and emphasizes the dedication of the child to God.
When shopping for baptism communion cakes, you want to be sure your selection is appropriate and acceptable from the occasion. It goes without saying that you cannot have an alcohol, flavored cakes for a baptism event. Similarly, a Halloween themed cakes would be misplaced for the occasion even when the desire is to have a custom baptism cake.
Since baptism events are more religious and conserved, it can be limiting when considering ideas for a baptism cake. This does not mean you should settle for a boring, white cake with minimal decorations. You can always get creative and have the best cake at your child’s baptism. Here are some ideas you can explore.
The best flavors for baptism events should be those that appeal to both adults and children. Ginger spice cake would make an ideal choice for an adult only event but not the best flavor for baptism cake. Do you know of any children that would relish on ginger? Strawberry and chocolate make the conventional flavors of choice. However, if you want to be more creative you can have a fruitcake. These are some of the cake flavors you can try.
- White vanilla cake
- Strawberry and cream cake
- Red velvet cake
- Carrot cake
- Raspberry cake
- Lemon flavored cake
- Banana flavored cake
The list is not limiting as you can discuss more available options with your baker. The rule of the thumb is to select a flavor mildly sweet. You do not want to give the young children enjoying the party sugar rush or upset the sugar and calorie intake of the adults at your event. Strike the best balance for both parties; this will be well appreciated.
While the baptism event is in honor of your child, he/she may be too young to make the decisions about their cake. As a parent you will have to make all the decisions/ For instance, would you wasn’t a religious-themed cake or a cartoon themed cake? What decorations, frosting and toppings will be used in its design? As you decide on these nitty-gritties, bear in mind your child’s remarks when they grow up and understand baptism and related celebrations.
