White and Silver Wedding Cake

Tuesday, July 5th, 2011

 

This Mini 3 Tier Wedding Cake travelled all the way to Ottawa for a winter wedding. It’s perfect for a smaller guest list while still maintaining that big wedding cake look. Each tier of this cake borrows from 3 separate cake designs. The different designs are tied together by the use of pearls accents on each tier, in the brooch and around the base of each tier. The entire cake is covered in off-white fondant with the accents ‘pearlized’ (dusted with pearl dust) and the bride’s silver wedding dress inspired the use of silver ribbon. The extra-large cake board and gathered fabric look of the fondant on the board creates more presence for this mini wedding cake.

The top tier of this cake features 3D sugar-flowers and leaves with vines piped on and accented with pearls. It was inspired by a cookie design that the couple found in a wedding cake magazine. On the top of this tier the initials of the bride and groom were piped on. The middle tier was done in a classic quilted pattern and the base tier was done in an equally classic Damask pattern.

Top Tier – 4 inch round Vanilla Raspberry Cake with Cointreau Buttercream

Middle Tier – 6 inch round Banana Chocolate Chip Cake with Light Chocolate Buttercream

Base Tier – 8 inch round Chocolate Cake with Semi-sweet Chocolate Buttercream and a middle layer of Snickers (chocolate bar) Chunks

This White and Silver Mini 3 Tier Wedding Cake provided 36-38 servings making it a great size for bridal showers and anniversaries as well.

Ivory Rose Wedding Cake

Thursday, June 30th, 2011

 

For her outdoor summer wedding by the shores of Lake Ontario in Whitby, this bride wanted an elegant cake design with lots of ivory roses to match her wedding colours and flowers. This Ivory Rose Wedding Cake was covered with ivory fondant and had a quilted design on the top and bottom tiers. The design on the middle tier was piped with royal icing and painted with liquid pearl. The darker ivory piping on the base of the top and bottom tier and the row of roses on the middle tier were done in buttercream. Ivory sugar roses on top and our round silver cake stand completed the look.

All 3 Tiers (6, 8 and 10 inch round cake combination) were Vanilla Bean Cake with Vanilla Buttercream and provided 72 servings.
