This Communion Cake Is Easy To Make!
I made this easy Holy Communion Cake and think it turned out pretty well. This is a great decorated cake for beginners, as the decorations are simple and the use of fondant is minimal, yet pretty.
I baked 2 half sheet cakes, and allowed them to cool.
This vanilla cake recipe works really well if you’re looking for a sturdy, yet delicious cake.
I cut the cakes in the shape of a cross, making sure that both cakes were the same.
You can do this by making a sketch of a cross on paper and using that as a guideline.
I stacked the cakes and used my perfect buttercream frosting as the filling. You could also use my Chocolate Frosting too.
Next I bought some white fondant. I like the brand Satin Ice, It’s easy to work with and tastes good!
I dyed some of the fondant blue and rolled it out to about 1/8- inch and cut it into the shape of a cross to place on top of the cake.
I also rolled out some white fondant and cut it into a circle to make the name plate. I wrote on the nameplate with a food coloring marker.
I colored some of the fondant with a light blue food gel and then formed it into small balls for the rosary beads.
I made the cross out of fondant also for the end of the beads, and sprayed it with a silver food coloring.
I bought light blue sugar flowers to decorate the top of the cake, but you could pipe those on too with frosting.
