I don’t often toot my own horn, but I am so stinkin’ proud of my most recent wedding cake that I just had to share it with all of you! I’ve been dying to do a romantic style wedding cake, and I got the opportunity last month to create this 4 tier, over 2 foot tall, masterpiece. It was so much fun to make, and the wedding was positively stunning. The photography is by the amazing Ariel at Ari Photography who photographed my own wedding. My sister danielle at Save The Date FL did the beautiful flowers.
This was actually a dummy cake, where the tiers are made of styrofoam and I covered them in real fondant. It works out great when you want a huge fabulous cake, but don’t have 500 guests. The 130 guests were served sheet cake in Champagne Vanilla cake with strawberry filling and vanilla buttercream, and Chocolate cake with raspberry filling and dark chocolate ganache.
Whenever I do a dummy cake people often ask what to do about the cake cutting. The bride and groom actually cut their slice out of a little tiny two-tier cake that I prepared for them. The top tier is their piece for the night, and the bottom tier which is a 6″ cake is their anniversary cake. You can see in the last picture where they are cutting the cake that it worked out perfectly!
