Christening Cakes

A christening, baptism or naming day is such a special, jubilant occasion, it calls for a beautiful cake. Like the way we mark birthdays and weddings with the ritual of cutting a cake, it also plays a vital role in the christening celebrations. With the cutting of the cake, everyone gathers around and celebrates with the new parents and godparents, and, of course, the newly-christened baby.

Patisserie Valerie has a vast range of beautiful cakes to help you celebrate your child's special day. Our elegant yet simple christening cakes are the perfect way to help you introduce your little one to the world.

What kind of Christening Cake should I choose?

A common tradition was to save the top tier of your wedding cake and later use it for your child's christening cake. Today, it's more popular to mark the occasion with a magnificent cake. However, with so much choice available, it can be hard to decide what would make the perfect christening cake. Modern christening cakes come in various shapes, sizes, styles and even colours. Some have simple decorations on the top, while others are a lot more extravagant. Patisserie Valerie has a great selection of modern christening cakes for girls and boys.

You can opt for a colourful christening cake in pastel blues or pretty pinks, representing your baby's gender. If you prefer a christening cake with a more neutral colour scheme, you'll also find more simple christening cakes with minimal embellishments. Your cake can also be personalised with a special inscription to help you mark the special day.

Christening Cakes for Girls

If you are looking for christening cakes for girls, you won't be disappointed. We offer a range of unique Christening cakes for girls.

How about a Fairytale Gateau for your little princess? Not only does it look beautiful with glimmering pearls, hand-piped pink and white swiss buttercream swirls and pink sprinkles, but it also tastes delicious, too. You'll enjoy four layers of vanilla sponge, vanilla swiss buttercream and delicious raspberry jam.

You may prefer the Pink Candy Stripe Gateau, a five-layered cake with alternate pink sponge layers, delicious raspberry jam and Swiss buttercream. Decorated with macrons and a sprinkling of chocolate and glitter confetti, it's undoubtedly an incredible cake.

The Raspberry Fault Line Gateau makes a beautiful christening cake for a little girl. This delicious cake has four layers of chocolate sponge alternating with layers of raspberry cream and raspberry compote. Covered in pink vanilla Swiss buttercream and topped with pretty pink swirls, the cake is finished off with a band of blue sugar sprinkles.

But perhaps the ultimate showstopper christening cake for girls is the Pink Piñata Cake. Decorated with pink and chocolate Swiss buttercream, it has delicious layers of chocolate sponge with chocolate Swiss buttercream and dark chocolate ganache. The pièce de resistance has to be the surprise inside of multicoloured chocolate beans.

Christening Cakes for Boys

You'll find there's no shortage of delicious and magnificent christening cakes for boys. Gorgeous inside and out, the Blueberry Ombre is a delightful christening cake for a boy.

Its soft vanilla sponge complements layers of freshly whipped cream and a blueberry filling. A cake that's fit for a prince, it's decorated with royal blue Swiss buttercream, rosettes and more blueberry fruit filling.

If you are looking for a christening cake for boys that's not only beautiful and delicious but fun, too, choose a Blue Piñata Cake. Chocolate sponge layers combine with dark chocolate ganache and chocolate Swiss buttercream to hide a surprise of multicoloured chocolate beans inside.

The cake is finished with blue and chocolate Swiss buttercream. The Blue Candy Stripe Gateau is a feast for the senses. Its five layers of blue candy stripes and alternate layers of vanilla sponge combine with a zingy raspberry jam and delicious Swiss buttercream. Coated with white and blue Swiss buttercream icing, the cake is lovingly decorated with vanilla and salted caramel macaroons, hand-piped vanilla buttercream swirls and sprinkled with chocolate and glitter.
