First Communion Cake Tutorial
Today was my middle son's first Communion day! We attend a small church so there were only 5 First Communicants. At a nearby church, there were 150! Amazing!
I made my son's cake using ideas that I pinned on Pinterest and then I added a few of my own ideas to create this gorgeous cake:
Want to make your own? Here's how:
First bake 24 cupcakes and cool them in the refrigerator. Then make some buttercream icing (or buy it). I used a recipe from Wilton to make my own buttercream icing. The recipe turned out perfect. I made two batches, one white and one blue. I had lots of blue left over!
Next, you need a cake board to put this HUGE cupcake cake onto. I made my cake "board" from cardboard pieces glued together and then covered with fabric. I then taped some wax paper over the fabric for a beautiful background.
Now assemble your cake. Using a dab of icing on the bottom,"Glue" each cupcake to your board. Form a cross by placing sixteen cupcakes in 8 rows of two going vertically down my cake board. Then added four on each side to finish the cross.
