6″-8″- 10″ yellow butter cake with vanilla buttercream. Fresh flowers provided by King & Hollyfield Florist, Southern Pines NC.
I have always liked the off-set design of a square wedding cake. Stacking the tiers in this manner gives it a little different look. Having the corners exposed leaves lots of room for flowers or other decorations. This 4 tier yellow butter cake is decorated in Vanilla butter cream with dots and has 3 different butter cream filling, Mocha, Chocolate fudge, and Vanilla.
It’s fun to create a wedding cake with different designs. I made a drawing for the bride with lots of ideas and she liked these designs best. On the top I have dots, then a horizontal wavy line, a Cornelia lace design, and at the bottom stripes & dots. Flavors are a classic yellow butter cake iced in Vanilla butter cream. Fresh roses are added for the topper.
This is a cake I did several years ago for a Fall wedding.
The bride had seen another cake I had done with this “string” design and thought It looked like bark on a tree and she loved it. The base/cake stand she wanted to use for the cake to give it a rustic look was a large slice of real wood so this design went well with it. Fresh fall flowers and greens were added for a finished look.
This was for a small wedding on the beach and I thought seashells were perfect for this cake. The bride wanted the color purple somewhere on her cake so I tinted some of the shells and added other colors for contrast. Cake flavor, classic yellow cake with vanilla butter cream and white chocolate shells.
Small wedding cake with 2 tiers. The top is a 7″ chocolate cake, bottom tier a 14″ yellow butter cake, frosting is vanilla butter cream. The red roses are butter cream, the W monogram is fondant.
NOTE: sheet cakes or cupcakes could be added for additional servings.
