First Holy Communion (more cake!)

And as if three birthday cakes weren’t enough… Littlest Littlesheep had his First Holy Communion so we needed more cake!

Usually my cakes are chocolate sponges with chocolate butter cream but having only just finished off the last two cakes I did a normal Victoria sponge as the base for this one (albeit gluten and dairy free), strawberry jam (with no bits in it) in the middle (would have added ‘butter’ cream too but couldn’t make enough as I’d run out of icing sugar!) and then covered it with vanilla ‘butter’ cream. The decoration is white chocolate fingers, crushed meringue and freeze dried strawberries topped with a chalice and host made from (ready made fondant icing) with silver shimmer dust and silver balls.
