Christening Cakes

…Freshly made for you!

Christening cakes are all part of celebrating your child's big day, and are a tradition that dates back to when married couples would save the top tier of their wedding cake and then serve it up at the christening.

But there are plenty of reasons why you might not have a layer of wedding cake set aside - and even if you do, a christening cake is a great way to make sure you have enough for all of your guests.

Our traditional christening cakes come in a range of different designs and can be customised with a piped icing message or your child's name or the date of their birth or christening.

When you have a christening cake made to order, you can tell our master bakers exactly what you want it to say, and they will help you to decide on a message that will fit nicely into the available space.

Naming day cakes for all denominations

Because our celebration cakes are themed around typical childhood items and other non-religious themes, they work well as naming day cakes for any religion and for atheist families too.

So whether your ceremony is religious, humanist or just an informal gathering of friends and family to introduce your baby by name, we have a celebration cake to suit.

You can find out more about each style of cake by visiting its individual page, or read about the different types of sponge, buttercream, icing and so on, as well as any potential allergens in the ingredients, in our 'more information about celebration cakes'.

If you still have any questions or you want to discuss placing a particular order for a specific style of cake, you can call Greenhalgh's on 01204 696204 to speak to our team, or just drop into any one of over 60 local Greenhalgh's bakeries where our on-site bakers will be happy to help.
