Beary Sweet Train Baptism Cake | DIY Cakes


Happy Thanksgiving Weekend Everyone! Well at least to all my Canadian friends :) 
Today I have a Baptism Cake to share with you all! I was asked if I could make a cake for a Baptism this weekend. Funny how people think I'm a baker or something now, LOL! Of course as usual I said yes, hopefully, they will be happy with the results. I was sent a photo of some inspiration... Two bears, cross, blanket, and especially the train were musts. The photo I found came from Kimberly, an amazingly talented cake artist! I do have to give her credit, thank you, Kimberly, from Kimberly Dawn Cakes for the inspiration, love your work! 

Look at that "Bear" Bum! Isn't it a CUTIE! You could almost bite it... well technically you could, haha!

Well what do you think? Two bears, cross, blanket, train, and I even threw in a rosary!
I really love how it came together :)

DIY Extra Large Rosary Made from Silk Daisies | Decoration Piece

Today our Church Our Lady of Fátima celebrates the day that the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared in Fátima, Portugal. Being Portuguese this is a huge day for our Catholic Portuguese families. It also happens to fall on Mother's day this year, making it extra special!

I guess word has spread that I'm quite crafty,  so some of the ladies from our parish asked if I could help them with some decor for the day. Here is the Rosary I made out of daisies. Not quite sure how it will be displayed yet, but will soon find out (I will, unfortunately, miss this as I am working, but I'll get to hear all about it when I get home) Hopefully, I will see some pictures!

It turned out to be a little bigger than I wanted, but I think it turned out beautifully!  I hot glued flowers that I pulled of their stems, to fishing line. For the cross and connector, I simply cut 6 layers with my Silhouette Cameo and glued them all together to give it the chipboard feel.

The rosary made with little balls of rolled fondant then strung them all together with a stretchy elastic wire.
