Cake Ideas For Confirmation


Cakes can be custom-tailored to any special event and celebration milestone, from first birthdays and weddings to anniversary gifts or confirmations. Here are some stylish cake ideas to help plan a treat worthy of celebrating a significant life event!

Sweet Bloom offers stunning cake toppers featuring edible lace dresses to top their stylish lavender and purple damask cake design, while an angelic little girl makes for a breathtaking centerpiece in Andrea’s Sweet Cakes’ exquisite pink communion cake design below right.

Lavish Shell Pink Design by The White Cakery

The White Cakery, an Australian bakery known for their incredible cakes that look like modern art paintings, has created unique creations such as this dark pink ombre piece, which mimics the rose petals that covered the aisle during This Is Us star Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Larry David’s emotional outdoor ceremony.

One gorgeous design for communion or confirmation ceremonies features a beautiful pale blue piece with silver details gilded by hand, perfect for stylish young girls. Or try an alternative method like an elegant pearl rosary featuring gold lettering.

Mini meringues, florals, and painted buttercream cakes are popular options for first communion and confirmation cakes. Blooms like larkspur, daisies, and wildflowers create an organic effect, while more structured botanicals such as pampas grass or fern fronds make geometric styles. For an even more modern and unique appearance, add floral swags or frame the cake with trailing ivy to frame its edge and frame the whole affair!

Floral Swags and Framed Detailing by Simply Sweet Cakes & Cupcakes

If a cross or crucifix aren’t precisely what you have in mind for decorating the sides of your confirmation cake, why not create some simple white butter icing flowers or ribbon borders as decoration instead? For an alternative look, you could make patterns using silver balls. To do this, mix some butter with icing sugar until smooth; roll it out to a thickness of 4-5mm, and carefully smooth it over your cake’s top surface.

If there’s enough space (and with permission from the confirmandi), consider adding in a short phrase or powerful quote such as: ‘May God’s Light shine through you for all to see” or “Hold tightly onto His Hand.” Be wary, however, not to make too many additions; remove anything unnecessary later if the confirmandi dislikes what was added!

Jeweled Crosses by Sugarbelle Cakes

Communion and confirmation ceremonies mark critical religious occasions for children of the Catholic faith worldwide, and stylish first communion cakes often include beautiful white dresses as part of the decoration and fun cake toppers. Sweet Bloom offers doily lace designs, while The White Cakery offers shell pink plans with silver details for girls’ communion or confirmation cakes. Both options make stylish choices. Edible lace makes an impactful statement in this bespoke communion dress cake by Roses & Bows Cakery for girls, while Andrea’s Sweet Cakes’ angelic fondant model topper would make an excellent communion topper for boys or confirmation cakes by Cake & Cupboard.

Paula Cake Couture’s exquisitely detailed toppers on both sides are sure to put any communion or confirmation cake over the edge.

Edible Lace Dress in a Cake by Roses & Bows Cakery

An elegant lace gown can provide excellent design inspiration. When considering details such as scalloped edges and floral embellishments, try mirroring these on the cake design.

If the gown features an eye-catching yet less complex pattern, allow a cake designer to recreate it using the edible medium. A lace-effect border piped using identical tone-on-tone shades of icing resembling its details perfectly mimics what Baked Stems accomplished with their stunning confection.

Flowers make an attractive decoration for confirmation cakes, especially when they match the bridal gown. Silver dollar eucalyptus adds an organic element that contrasts beautifully with Zorica’s Cake Art’s intricate piping work on this confection. This cake would also make an impressive first communion cake or sweet child communion cake topper model!

Angelic Little Girl Cake Topper by Andrea’s Sweet Cakes

An angelic little girl model adds the perfect finishing touch to a first communion cake for girls, such as this adorable design by Karla Chumpitaz of Sweet K Cake Design. Additionally, Cakes by Alka’s quilled cake design could also make an eye-catching topper for a confirmation or holy communion cake.

Ornate floral swags and frame detailing add flair to this stylish lavender damask cake by Sweet Cakes & Cupcakes; on the right-hand side is Sugarbelle Cakes’ lovely lattice lace stenciling design in soft pink. Edible lace dresses make an impressive communion cake addition. Such as this stunning dress in cake by Roses & Bows; a pearl-encrusted cross adds the final touch to this luxury dessert table by Verusca Walker.

Quilled Cake Design by Cakes by Alka

Quilling is a papercraft technique that can easily be applied to cake decorating. It involves rolling strips of paper into decorative shapes and creating eye-catching patterns with them, making quilling an elegant alternative to traditional fondant wedding cakes. Wilton offers an informative quilling tutorial to get you started with quilling.

Pretty patterns and intricate detailing highlight our final two communion cakes this week: Cake & Cupboard’s elegant lavender damask design (above left), as well as Karla Chumpitaz of Sweet K Cakes’ stunning little girl model with pigtails wearing a gold bag (above right). Both models can also serve as toppers for your one-of-a-kind boy or girl!

Sweet Bloom offers this elegant cake featuring a cameo design on a blue damask to celebrate confirmation for both boys and girls. If desired, the cameo can be substituted with either male or female silhouettes to suit any gender preference.

Sometimes, all a cake needs is one unique decoration to bring its elegance out in full bloom. These imaginative cake toppers for boys and girls feature an array of DIY and store-bought options you can add onto either store-bought or homemade cakes to truly make them shine!

Mannequin and Dressing Table Cakes by Paula Cake Couture

Add an eye-catching element to your confirmation cake by including edible models or toppers as an unforgettable finishing touch. Edible lace dresses make a beautiful impression (pictured left), as do angelic little communion girl models by Andrea’s Sweet Cakes (see right), as well as Karla Chumpitaz’s quilled cake design (below suitable).

Paula Cake Couture creates beautiful first communion and confirmation cakes featuring elegant details such as mannequins and dressing tables as the finishing touches for their girls’ communion or confirmation cakes, with chic mannequin cookies proving especially suitable. Muffin Mania and Calling All Cakes both specialize in such confectionery creations – as can be seen from the examples below.

Add an inspirational quote or message for extra significance and personalization on the cake. Your confirmationandi’s name could also be piped onto it, as well as religious icons like a cross or dove, though unfortunately, there may not be enough room to write out an entire Bible verse!
