This square 3 tier (6″-8″-12″) off set cake gives the appearance of being much larger than it really is. The silver stand gives it height and the corners of the cake are great for flowers. Using pine, magnolia leaves and red berries with just a few red and white flowers gives you that Christmas look. Topped with a fondant bow. A small extra tier for them to save with their cake ornament is placed to the side.
Fall is such a beautiful time for a wedding. It’s cooler and the flowers have such rich colors. I loved doing this cake. We sat it on a beautiful copper tray and surrounded it with fresh mums.I piped scrolls all over, made a fondant monogram & bow, dusted both with gold petal dust. Adding to the beautiful reception (not shown here) fresh pumpkins were used on the tables to hold the flower arrangements. Giving the room a real Fall feel.
Votive cake #1
This cake was perfect for a late evening reception. If you notice the corners hold votive candles, to be lit when the party began.A fun way to “light up” the cake. Fresh flowers, dots and a piped bead border completed the look.
Votive cake #2
After seeing votive cake #1, this bride liked it so much she chose this look for her wedding but chose a swiss dot pattern and darker hued flowers.
I think I like green flowers on cakes. They have a fresh look about them.
The month I did this cake everyone wanted dots, I could have done them in my sleep. It seemed to be the only design they liked, only the flowers changed and maybe the shape of the cake. A single monogram D tops the cake.
This was a fairly simple cake to do, not to large with stripes, criss-cross & diagonal stripe design. Sizes were 6″-8″-10″ squares.
I placed the tiers in an off-set design instead of stacking them straight up because of the tier sizes. I like at least a 3″ difference. This allows for decorations, flowers etc. to be placed on the tiers. Having the cake off -set gave me the corners to work with and I liked the way it looks.Fresh yellow roses and petals were used here.
The sizes for this cake are 8″-12″-16″. I always thought it looked larger in this photo must be the angle the picture was taken. Each tier is wrapped with pink ribbon and the bow and monogram are fondant. Fresh flowers at the base.
I think the name says it all “Falling Leaves”. All the leaves I
made from fondant, some are maple, some oak, and some I don’t know
what they are only that I like the colors. It all makes for a very colorful cake.
