Preheat the oven to 180°C.
Mix one batch of Stork Beat 'n Bake cake.
Pour equal amounts into the well greased, lined square pans and bake for 45 minutes or until cooked.
Turn out onto a cooling rack and allow to cool.
Place one of the square cakes base side up in the centre of the cake plate or board.
Spread ⅓ of the icing onto the cake and place the remaining cake base side down to sandwich them together.
Using the remaining icing, ice the top and sides of the cake, making the icing on top thicker and "fluffing" it with a flat bladed knife.
Chop up the 200g of white chocolate into chunks, place in a glass bowl and place in the microwave on defrost mode between setting 300 and 400.
Stop the microwave every 30 seconds and stir the chocolate, until melted. Continue stirring until it becomes thick - this is to temper the chocolate. It will take about 10 minutes.
Once it begins to get thicker, pour two round discs onto baking paper, the size of the top of a drinking glass, reserving a small amount of white chocolate.
Allow the discs to set, and mix some blue colouring with the remaining chocolate.
Place the blue chocolate in a small ziplock bag, and cut a very small corner off.
On one of the discs, write the baby's name and the date of the christening.
Place the two discs on the cake, one in each corner, and place the booties on the blank disc.
Place the white choco wafers around the cake, and then tie the blue organza ribbon around, securing with a bow.
