I love carving and creating structured cakes, but I also love making gorgeous wedding cakes. So when my sweet Cousin got engaged I couldn’t WAIT to sit down with her and designing the cake. We went through more designs on this cake than any other, BUT once you come up with the perfect design you just KNOW it!
It’s a HUGE cake, super heavy, but it looked just lovely! I love the different height’s on the layers and everyone loved all the different flavors too! We had coconut with coconut filling, strawberry with lemon cream cheese filling, white with white chocolate and chocolate with chocolate!
For the top tier I added fondant pleats and then a line of buttons matching the gorgeous back of the dress. It was super easy to make, roll out thin fondant, cut in quick stripes of different widths and wrap them around.
This couple is hilarious! The groom wore his DAD’S wedding tux, thus the blue ribbon around the bottom of the cake, to match this retro baby blue tux (complete with ruffled shirt, seriously). I love watching the couples try to cut the cake. Everyone thinks they know to cut a cake until that MOMENT when all eyes are on you and you realize you have NO idea how to cut a wedding cake!
