First Holy Communion Cake and Link-up


As I mentioned in the Baptism Cake post, this past Friday my brother-in-law flew in to offer a traditional Latin Mass during which our two daughters received their First Holy Communions!  Afterwards we had a simple cake reception in the parish hall.

For the girls' First Communion Cake I ordered Costco's Chocolate Cake with chocolate mousse and iced with white buttercream.  (Normally I would have opted for the white cake, but I wanted to have a little variety, since the Baptism Cake was already white.)   Since I wanted to make a white Bread of Life Cake Topper, using my Communion Candy Mold, I needed a contrasting color frosting to place it on.  (I didn't think it would look that great placed on white frosting.   Originally I had planned to make my own cake for my daughter, frosting it soft-pink and placing the chalice on top, but since my options at Costco were limited to white or chocolate, I decided to have them decorate the cake with their "Bouquet" design (which is the same one I had chosen for our last First Communion) with Pink Roses and place the topper into the center of the roses standing up.   Didn't it turn out pretty?!   I also had them write "Adoremus in Aeternum Santissimum Sacramentum" which translates to "Let us for ever adore the Most Holy Sacrament."


Now it is your turn. If you have made a cake for a First Holy Communion reception, we'd love to see it! Please add your link below.
