Christmas Wedding Cake

Christmas Wedding Cake

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 Wedding Cake

Fall Wedding Cake

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.

Sangria

Sangria

When you have a very bold color for your wedding colors it works best to use that color on your cake with flowers or ribbon as I have done here.The ribbon color  here is Sangria. Sometimes icing colors when very deep especially when using butter cream frosting may tend to “bleed” into the surrounding icing making it not so pretty.

Dots of Silver

Dots of Silver

A large 5 tier with tiny silver pearl dots scattered over the cake and piped butter cream scrolls. Fondant bows brushed with pearl dust were placed on the tiers and added on the top as an ornament. A large fondant monogram and a silver ribbon at the base completed the cake.
