Christmas Eve Wedding Cake Delivery



A friend of mine approached me recently and asked if I would make her wedding cake for Christmas Eve.

She wanted something simple with snowflakes on it and red ribbon. The bride requested a layered white cake with a raspberry filling.

Raspberry Filling


Since this was only the third time baking and decorating a wedding cake, I searched the web for ideas. All of wedding cake recipes I found for raspberry filling were not exactly as she wanted, she wanted more of a cheese type flavor. So I came up with a raspberry cream cheese filling with a layer of raspberry jam that was kind of tart. This helped balance out the sweetness of the raspberry cream cheese filling.

Not So Sweet Buttercream Frosting



TIP:The bride also wanted a butter cream icing that was not so sweet, but more buttery. This really stumped me at first wondering how was I going to make a butter cream icing that was stiff enough and not so sweet. So I did more online research and found that if I add a small amount of popcorn salt to the icing it would cut some of the sweetness. This is what I did and it turned out perfectly.

A Simple Royal Icing Wedding Cake Topper



The bride and groom were pleased with the result as well as the guests. All of the snowflakes were hand drawn with royal icing and then painted with edible luster dust. As an added touch I made an “S” for the bride’s new last name in royal icing. She didn’t want a topper, just snowflakes so I put the “S” in the middle of the snowflakes to top the cake.

The Snowflakes



The snowflakes were a lot easier than I thought it would be. Since it was my first time making them, I was a little uneasy about how fragile they would be. But they turned out pretty good.

Success



All in all the cake was a success. And many thanks to my husband for all he did to help me on Christmas Eve to get this cake done and delivered before we had our traditional Christmas Eve Family gathering.

My Wedding Cake
by: Lisa Smith

This cake was beautiful and delicious! I asked Gale to make a cake that would fit my Christmas Eve wedding. She mixed several requests to create this amazing cake. She not only met but exceeded my expectations. Everyone immediately commented that the cake was gorgeous.

The rave reviews on the flavor were repeated throughout the reception. The raspberry cream filling was the perfect surprise. The cake was moist and flavorful. The snowflakes were multiple shapes and added texture and sparkle to an impressive work of art.I am very grateful and would recommend Gale to anyone who wants a one of a kind masterpiece!!

Gorgeous
by: Nikki

This cake turned out beautiful!! I was excited to hear that my talented mother was doing a winter themed cake!! Wish I would have seen the cake in real life though, I'm sure the shimmers and textures really popped! I love the fact that I can be her taste tester, even though my waistline doesn't! Lol, I'm inspired by the effort and skill she puts into every order! The feedback from her customers makes me very proud to say ''my momma did that!''
