The christening cakes can be customized in several types of decorations and flavors that ranges from simple sheet to stacked tier cakes. Christening or baptism became one of the Christian right that followed the baptism of Christ in the river Jordan. This was followed by the people to represent the purification of the child and making the child to enter the god’s kingdom with no sin. This is one of the practices that are adopted by early people who follow Christianity. Still people are following this tradition as the naming of their new family member.

There are two choices such as Christian cross and tiered cakes for the parents to choose for the christening ceremony. Christening cross cakes are simple and traditional cakes that have a shape of christening cross molded to form the cake. This type of christening cakes is simple and easy to make. People can simply bake their cake in a sheet pan that they use regularly.
After the cake cooled, it can be cut into a shape forming a cross sign. Later they can decorate the cake with icing. They can spread the vanilla butter cream over the entire surface of the cake. Else they can use the royal icing to form a thin layer over the surface of cake. Adding food coloring to have some extra frosting will make the cake look beautiful.
Tiered christening cakes are made if the parents arrange some large party for the day of their child naming function. Most of this type of cakes will be made using the tier of either rectangle or round cakes or even the combination of both shapes. Another idea of making the cake is the cupcake christening cake that can be served for individually to all the attendees.
