The First Holy Communion party is over and almost all of the goodies were enjoyed; just a smidge of cake is left, but I took a picture when I finished decorating it, so I could share it with you. I wish you had been here to enjoy a piece.
What I did: I used a vanilla pound cake and filled the Wilton cross-shaped pan halfway, aftergreasing sndflouring well. I think it was 1.5 times the recipe. I baked it until a toothpick came out clean. After cooling, I frosted it with buttercream frosting and then placed a white chocolate cross (purchased at Easter) on the center of the cross. Using a small round top, I piped the pink, squiggly line all over (to look lacey). I made pink roses and placed them on the cross and piped green leaves. I used a small star tip to pipe a pink scallop around the bottom edge. With just s few cake decorating tools and some time, it was easy to do.
