Christening Cake

You may recall the sugar trainers I made earlier for this cake (as well as the paper ones I made for the exploding box that I have made for his parents), well I thought I would share the finished cake with you.  Top tier is sponge/madeira cake and the bottom tier is rich fruit cake - both marzipanned and coated with sugarpaste.  I was asked to do the name in little blocks.  I had to create an extra block to accommodate the two names of the same length and the spare block has a little elephant on it.

As you can see I added a little teddy leaning against the top tier

with a bit of luck if you click on this picture you will see that the writing says - On your Christening Day and the Date.
