Textures All In White

Do you sell this cake? Yes Name of website or online shop Cakes ROCK!!! Link to website or online shop cakesrock.rocks Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake I combined 3 of my favorite techniques from this class to create this cake. That bottom tier is a 10" round, & it took me & one of my Cake Minions 4 hours each working together to finish 3/4 of it, & then I spent another 3 hours finishing the rest by myself. There are over 400 individually cut & placed wafer paper pieces on that tier! The effect is awesome, but it may be the most time-consuming tier I’ve ever done. The middle tier is ribbons of fondant in a quilted pattern. I’m in LOVE with this look! One of my brides saw the preview pic & changed her wedding cake to this pattern—-I was so excited! The top tier is a bas relief solidly covered in various rose & brooch molds. It’s such a gorgeous texture with intricate detail when viewed closely. I highlighted the top 2 tiers with airbrushed pearl white to bring out the detail.

Q&A with CatCakeChristy

Garden Baker asked:
Beautifully done!!! Since you now have lots of wafer paper experience, I have a question for you about this beautiful technique and medium that I've not as yet used. When a tier like this is cut and served, does the wafer paper just get removed and discarded??? Would be such a pity, but as I understand it has no taste.
CatCakeChristy answered:
Oh no way anyone would eat that stuff! Yes, sadly, all that time & effort is just for show & will be thrown away. I imagine it would just pop off when the cake is cut anyway.
filigreec10946572 asked:
how many sheets of wafer paper did u use to get that tier covered?
CatCakeChristy answered:
I don't remember how many whole sheets I used, but I know there were around 450 individual pieces. I hope that helps!
