A cake is usually served, typically white or ivory with some symbolic elements like a cross, a dove or something similar. However, your child may prefer something entirely different and instead your cake could be used in place of serving a dessert.
These Confirmation cakes are all stunning, and yet you don’t need to be a master baker to be able to make your own!

For something a bit simpler, we love this idea from One Sweet Treat for confirmation cupcakes.
Just make some cupcakes in your preferred flavour, and decorate with some coloured frosting. You can use ready-made sugar paste crosses available from Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.com to decorate, or make your own cross and dove shapes. You could also display them on your table in a cross shape.
#6. Frilled Cake
I love this frilled cake from I Am Baker, simply decorated with icing frills. Add a Confirmation cake topper to complete the look if you feel the need.
#7. Religious Cake Pops
For something completely different, make some Confirmation cake pops like these ones on Pinterest.
Here is a recipe for making your own cake pops, and then decorate with some blue coloured icing and edible beads in the shape of a cross.
#8. Dove Cake
Top a madeira cake or cake of your choice, with some chocolate icing and then top with a white icing dove. You can make your dove shape with paper and “draw” outline on your chocolate icing with a toothpick, like Catholic Cuisine did for this cake.
#9. Ruffled Cake
Elevate a simple madeira cake with this simple but impressive ruffled icing. Follow the instructions on this video from Smash Cakery to create your very own version. All you need is some time and patience!
#10. Decorated Dove Confirmation Cookies
Not exactly a cake, but for something alternative, why not make these cute Dove Confirmation cookies from Bake At 350, using a dove shaped cookie cutter, royal icing and some edible icing pens. You can find dove cookie cutters on Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.com.
