This cake was made for a couple that was having a small wedding and reception. About 40 people. The flavor for the cupcakes and wedding cake was yellow butter cake with vanilla butter cream frosting. The handmade white roses were butter cream.
Sorry about the quality of the photo, its been around a long time, but I thought I would post it anyway.This is the first really big cake I ever did many years ago. The customer wanted to create a stunning focal point for the wedding reception. She also did not care what I did as long as it was large. Being excited by the possibility of doing a BIG cake I decided on the “Lady Windermere” style. Their were 8, 8″ cakes at the base, they surrounded a 14″round and going up there are a 12″, a 10″ and on top a 6″. Designs included a ruffle drape, Cornelia lace, butter cream flowers with royal icing bridges that I made to connect the 8″ cakes to the 14″ to complete the cake. My customer loved the cake and I liked the way it turned out too.
Do you remember the “PEZ” containers that had candy in them? I do.
This couple found these and thought they would make a nice topper for their cake. Not sure if they are the REAL thing but I agree, they are cute and different. They also chose the wave and vine design with a red ribbon wrapped around each tier with a few fresh flowers.
