We have just started to plan my sons Christening which is in June. I'm in no way an expert baker, I can make cupcakes and pipe icing. However I wanted to have a go at making his cake myself. (We will still have one professionally made as a back up lol).
What is the icing called that you use on these sort of cakes?... is it marzipan? And how easy is it to make?
I wanted to do a Peter Rabbit theme, where can I get a little Peter figure from to go on top?
And how long would this sort of cake take to make? I was thinking a sponge cake, so what sort of life do these have? Obviously I would need to make it in advance.
Thank you to anybody who takes some time to read this and thank you in advance for any advice and help x
