Collection: Christening Cakes

A christening cake is perfect for a christening, baptism or naming day. 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.
