If you are of Christian faith, you do understand how important a baptism event is’ especially to your children. Every child born of Christian parents must be baptized in a church. The baptism event is symbolic of the baptism of Jesus Christ that marked the beginning of his teachings and ministry.
During the event, it is customary to have a baptism communion cake to share with friends and family during the event. This can be a custom baptism cake or something simple as cupcakes or a homemade cake. However, most parents like the custom made cakes as they are more telling of the theme for the event.
In this case, a visit to the nearest baker is necessary to pick the best cake to culminate the christening ceremony. While buying a baptism cake, these are pro tips to have in mind during the process
- Appropriate flavors – Unlike weddings or other adult-centered events, baptism events attract children and young adults especially immediate family members. This limits your choice for flavors to those appropriate for all age groups available. While pure vanilla cake with frosting may be appealing to children, adults may want something less sugary. Hence the choice of flavor has to be a perfect balance for both adults and children; something like a red velvet cake.
- The number of guests – The number of guests you expect dictates the size of cake you buy. It would be disappointing to have a small cake and some of your guests miss a piece. It is advisable to have a cake whose size is enough to serve two or more pieces to your expected guests as well as their plus ones.
- Theme – While the event is a baptism event; religious in kind, you can be having a themed party thereafter. Deciding on a theme for the event dictates the colors, design and decoration to use even on the cake. The gender of the child also plays a role in defining the event’s theme. For instance, a baby girl will appreciate a floral cake more than a baby boy.
- Find the best baker – While anyone can easily make a cake from following a recipe or tutorial, it takes a professional to perfectly balance each ingredient and achieve just the right amount of fluff desired. Professional chefs will also guide you in selecting flavors, size, decoration frosting or fondant. A good baker has excellent reviews from previous clients especially those who’ve brought baptism cakes. Take time to meet several bakers as during the interaction process you will find your perfect fit.
