Christening cakes Manchester


Celebrate your child's christening with a bespoke cake from Fancy Cakes by Rachel. We make Bible cakes, Cross cakes, Carousel cakes and cakes with blocks, teddy bears, rattles and booties or we can put a sugar model of your child's favourite soft toy on the cake.

Look at our photo gallery to see the range of cakes our clients have requested.

We are based in Manchester and make cakes for all your celebrated occasions, including wedding cakes, birthday cakesanniversary cakes, engagement cakes, first holy communion cakes and baby shower cakes.

All our cakes are baked fresh to order using the best quality ingredients. You can choose from a range of different flavours, please look at the cake flavours page.

The most popular cake flavours are the vanilla victoria sponge cake with jam and buttercream filling and the rich chocolate cake, made with real Belgian chocolate. Visit the flavours page to see the full range of our cake flavours.

We also make a range of free-from cakes, If you require a cake that is vegangluten-free, egg-free or dairy-free please let us know on initial contact and we will let you know if we can make it for you. 

All cakes are prepared in an environment where nuts, wheat flour, dairy products and eggs are used and therefore cannot guarantee nut, gluten, dairy and egg free, there may be traces. If you have a high level of allergy, we don't recommend purchasing one of our cakes.

Our Chocolate box cake is a firm favourite. A round or square cake is decorated to look like a beautiful box with a layer of chocolates of your choice on the top. The "box" lid is open so you can see the delicious chocolates inside. Decorated with bows and flowers and in your choice of colour, every chocolate box is different.

Floral decorations

We use sugar flowers, fresh flowers or artificial flowers to decorate the cakes. The sugar flowers are handmade and can be made in the colour theme of your wedding. Fresh roses always look lovely but the colour palette for fresh roses is less extensive. Artificial flowers come in an extensive range of colours and shades and can, therefore, get a closer match to your colour theme. Artificial flowers are the best option if you require a larger number of flowers on your cake.

Cakes with bouquets of handmade sugar flowers are always popular. Look at our gallery to see the flowers we make. Bouquets of sugar flowers may be wired and these should be removed from the cake before eating

Character cakes can be based on a hobby or pastime, a favourite football team or to reflect a special holiday or event.

If you have a photograph you would like on your cake send us the picture and we can incorporate it into the design - See the photo cake page for more details. The higher the resolution of the image you send the better the picture will print on the icing. The picture is printed in edible ink onto an icing sheet.

Please send pictures via email, Facebook, Instagram or Whatsapp of the designs you  like, the date the cake is for, how many people the cake is to serve, and any additional information and we will price the cakes for you.

Children's birthday cakes

We make all the favourite characters including Frozen, In the night garden, Shrek, Cinderella, Cars, Thomas Tank, Cocomelon, Boss Baby, Spongebob, Mr Tumble, Lazy Town, Hello Kitty, Peppa Pig, Tom and Jerry and many more. Ballon cakes are great for children's birthday parties. Balloons on straws are added to the top of the cake, usually a chocolate drip cake and look fantastic.

Cake Stands

We have a selection of  cake stands for hire, including a crystal stand with a water fountain for those who would like a little extra drama from their cake and the very popular crystal pillarsHoop stands and chandelier stands are increasingly popular.
