Project Description

Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Square cake pans: 8", 12",16". Almond poppy seed cake, Cinnamon cake. Cream Cheese Frosting. 5 lb. Commercial fondant. Wilton food color gel (delphinium blue, sky blue, and cornflower blue mixed), plastic cake plates and pillars, sugar snowflakes, white roses, blue spruce sprigs, floral oasis foam, white glitter glue, wooden dowel rods What are you most proud of? This was my first wedding cake. A lot of time and planning went ahead of the actual baking and decorating. So it was pretty exciting when it all came together. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take your time. Talk to people who do this for a living and come up with a realistic schedule for getting everything done. Leave extra time in case there is a disaster and you have to make a new cake or new batch of frosting, or whatever. For this wedding, I actually made a practice cake a month in advance (just one 8 inch square) to make sure the cake was the right consistency, and to practice rolling the fondant and covering a square cake (which can be tricky!).
