#2. Rosary Bead Cake
We love the simplicity of this cake idea – just make your standard cake and decorate with white fondant icing, and decorate top with fondant cross and beads (for convenience you could even just use real rosary beads which you remove before eating).

#3. Simple Carrot Cake
For a fool-proof option, why not make a carrot cake, using this recipe from the Food Network, and cover with some cream cheese frosting. You can then decorate with Confirmation cake topper like these crosses from Amazon.co.uk or Amazon.com.

#5. Confirmation Cupcakes
For something a bit simpler, 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 & Amazon.com to decorate, or make your own cross and dove shapes. You could also display them on your table in a cross shape.

#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.
