Baptism Cake

A friend wanted a cake for her son's baptism.  So I baked a two layer vanilla cake with chocolate fudge frosting for the filling.  I smoothed the vanilla buttercream icing on the cake and stuck it in the freezer to harden a bit.  I printed a free picture of a boy being baptized.  I then put the picture on a cake dummy and used a toothpick to poke holes along all the lines.  I then took my cake out of the freezer, placed the holey picture on top of the cake where I wanted it, and gently rubbed  the picture.  When I picked up the picture, the holes imprinted all the lines from the picture onto the cake.  I then used the fudge frosting and a size 2 round tip and traced along the lines.  I then used a size 14 star tip and filled in the picture with a bunch of stars.  White vanilla frosting for the clothes and peachy vanilla frosting for the skin.  I then used the fudge frosting for the hair.  When that was done I used a size 32 star tip and the vanilla buttercream for the top and bottom border.  Done!
