Elizabeth's Christening

I got the privilege to do cookies for a Finnish family that has moved to Utah recently. Tuija and her family are some of the nicest people around. There little Elizabeth was christened a couple of weeks ago and Tuija wanted some cookies and a cake for the celebration gathering following the christening.

I also made some Karelian Pies or as the Finns call it karjalanpiirakka. They are a savory pastry made of a rye crust with a rice porridge filling. You think top it with egg butter and they are so delicious  Seriously I love them, they are my most favorite Finnish food.

I was not in love with my finished product on the top tier of this cake. Just makes me realize that I need to be a better planner and maybe I should not try to cover cakes with fondant, I should just stick to butter cream. :)
