Communion Season

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.

This is an easy cake to make and turns out so cute!

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

I *am* Catholic…and I am in the library reading this post trying my hardest not to laugh out loud!!! Oh my goodness! The ashes! My mom said when I was in 1st grade in Catholic School, my class when to Ash Wednesday Mass and I wouldn't go up…I thought they were HOT ashes!!! (I guess I didn't remember from the years before?)

Anyhoo…your rosary!!! That is fabulous! I just made fondant this week and I'm thinking I need to make a rosary from it now. Would it be wrong to eat it, though?

Love the colors in this cake! I knew someone who ate Crayola crayons in elementary school, so trust me, eating Chapstick isn't so bad!

While I was made to go through communion and all by my parents, I could have easily breezed through it more appreciatively if I knew I had this cake to dive into afterwards. It would have made it worth it in my opinion, lol. You always do a beautiful job.

Gorgeous cake. Being from the South I didn't grow up around many Catholics, either. But now that I'm older I see that there are in fact other religions around me. I was just a typical, blind kid!
