First Real Wedding Cake

by Helga
(CT)





This page is a compilation of beautiful Wedding cakes from visitors. This was my first real wedding cake using real cake. It was a challenge stacking the cakes on top of a little one. (I used double cardboard). Lots of roses.. The drape in the middle cake was a plan B, because the buttercream was showing through the fondant.. lol I don't know why.

The second tier was 8 inches tall. I put a few dowels in the bottom one then used 3 card board rounds for support in the top cake and dowels to made it looks like one cake.
I had so much fun with my first real wedding cake.

Beautiful Helga. Congratulations! I assume your other cakes were made using Styrofoam dummies. That is a great way to practice decorating. Good luck in the contest.

My Own Wedding Cake

by Mark Price-Pass
(Worcestershire, England)




This was my own wedding cake and my first. The cake was made at home and decorated at work. a prison. I teach NVQ catering but this was a real challenge, yet enjoyable and at times stressful.

The hardest part was making the Lilies and getting them lined up to make the top look like it was resting on the flowers.

The wedding cake figurines on top were purchased and added for interest.

Driving 20 miles with it in three parts back home was pretty nerve racking.

Thank you for your cake contest entry. Great DIY wedding cake Mark. Congratulations! Hope you get lots of comments and ratings. Ask your family and friends to stop by and say a few words about your own homemade wedding cake. Good Luck.

My baby brother's wedding cake

by Edith Sieg-Reed
(Newport News, VA)


My little brother and his sweetheart he met in the Navy decided to have a 4th of July wedding. It was at my country home and they chose black and white for their colors.

My sister in law had just lost her mother whose favorite flower was the daisy. I incorporated the daisies into their flowers which were black and white roses. This gave her a feeling of her mother's presence and a reminder of her mother.

It was a beautiful day, nothing could have gone more right for the two of them. Her grandmother flew in to Kansas from Ohio and it was lovely!

Thank you Edith for another great entry in to the cake decorating contest. Very sweet story too.

The Bride And Groom Take The Top

by Nivia Rodrigues
(Warfield, Berkshire, UK)


The Bride And Groom Take The Top



This tiered wedding cake was a great challenge for me. It was my second! Being that this was the first time doing this design and putting 4 cakes together, apart from doing the bride and groom toppers.

The tiers had to be 4" tall because the bride wanted to have that look. It was scary to make such a cake.

In the end it was all worth it! The great feed-back from the bride and groom is what makes all effort put into it appreciated.

Love Your Suitcase Design
by: Lorelie

Hi Nivia, Thank you for entering your fabulous suitcase wedding cake. Its amazing that this is your second timr. The bride and groom toppers are awesome too. I can relate to how scary it is to make one so tall and heavy. Even after 25 years plus, I still get a little nervous. Until the cake is safely set up at the reception hall you really have to stay on your toes! Great work! Hope you get lots of responses .

This cake is a beautiful wedding cake, my first ever. It took me several days to complete it, of course not working 24 hours a day.

Making Sugar Roses is HARD!

by Kate
(London)





For the last couple of months I have been wedding cake and sugar-flower obsessed.

One of my good friends is getting married in a couple of weeks time and knowing just how much very average tasting wedding cakes can cost I offered to make her wedding cake as her wedding gift. She agreed.

N wants a cake to match her bridesmaid's dresses; beautiful vintage style yellow background with pink roses and blue forget me not flowers.

'Sure!' I said. 'No problem!' And then proceeded to realize just how incredibly difficult it is to make a sugar rose!

It is VERY difficult. After literally WEEKS spent practicing, I finally produced something that looks like a rose! After all of the equipment I bought to make these roses I am seriously considering establishing a sideline in cake
making...

Western Wedding Cake

Western Wedding Cake Topper

Western Wedding Cake


This was a wedding cake I did recently...the couple gave me their western wedding cake topper and their color scheme. The only real instructions were to keep it fairly simple.

So I chose rope and pearls as the borders and used roses to bring in a pop of red. Each tier was a different flavor with three different fillings. It was also accompanied by three dozen cupcakes in three different flavors.

Tracy Thank you for your western wedding cake entry. If you would like to tell us more please feel free to add to your story in the comments below. Would love to get more information such as what the flavors were. Do you have a tip you would like to share? Thanks the more details the better :-) The topper is great. Can you find out where it came from? I know that someone is going to come along and ask that of me where they can find it.

Ivory Buttercream Cake

by Krystina
(Oregon)

4 Tier Ivory Buttercream Cake

4 Tier Ivory Buttercream Cake

This Ivory Buttercream Cake was 4 tiers of actual cake. Each tier was a different flavor. It is covered in ivory buttercream, black satin ribbon and fresh flowers.
Tier By Tier
The bottom tier was made using a diamond impression mat and then placing sugar beads at each cross point.
The next tier up is hand piped swirls and such using buttercream. Next we did the sugar beads in a diamond pattern.
The top tier is buttercream piped in the shape of a plaque with the letter "B" in the middle for their last name.

First Wedding Cake


This was the first wedding cake I have ever made and also the largest. I have to say thanks to my mom who came over at midnight and stayed until 4 am to help me finish.

Ivory Stencil Wedding Cake

by Krystina
(Oregon)


This Ivory Stencil Wedding Cake was intended to sit atop a cupcake stand, but because of the weight it got a place all of it's own. It is covered in white fondant with a royal icing ivory stencil on all four sides. The flowers are real and so is the satin ribbon around the bottom.

Fondant Bow And Lace

Fondant Bow and Lace

Fondant Bow and Lace

This fondant bow and lace cake I made for a ladies 85th birthday is a 3 tier cake (pink is her favorite color).

In doing all of the lace I learned that it is very tedious, I had to punch out all the holes by hand.

Beautiful cake!
by: Anonymous
Beautiful cake! There looks like there's detailing on the pink bow...is there? Either way that bow is gorgeous!

Pretty Lace and Fondant Bow
by: Lorelie
Hi Tracy,
Thanks for entering the cake decorating contest. It's a beautiful cake. The birthday girl must have been very happy with it. I can imagine that the lace was tedious. Can you give us some details as to how you made the lace and the bow?

Funky Wedding Cake

by Tacy Riddle
(Osceola IA)


This was a funky wedding cake I made for one of my friends. She wanted fun bright colors, and funky patterns. So this is what I came up with. One of the hardest things about it was making sure I had the correct size pans, because when I turned each tier they would hang over if they were not the right size.

Victorian Lady's Day Dreamer Wedding Cake

Day Dreamers Victorian Wedding

Day Dreamers Victorian Wedding

This is a cake I entered into a contest this year to benefit Dolly Parton's Imagination Library. It was my first attempt at making books. It was a lot of fun to create, I learned a lot and I felt day dreamy as though I was a bride planning my big day. At least that was the inspirational theme along with the books. Enjoy :)

How did you fair in the competition?
by: Mary-Beth Rubin

I can see how much work you put into this. It is a 'novel' (ok, excuse the pun), and with a lovely romantic theme. I like all the accessories around it, too. Nice touches.

Very Unique
by: Lorelie
Hi Jeani,

Thanks for submitting your unique design. I wonder if you could tell us more about how you did it. Any special techniques? Do you have a piece of advice that my readers could benefit from?

What an unusual and interesting piece of work! :)

Grecian Inspired Wedding

by Tacy Riddle
(Osceola, IA )


I made this Grecian Inspired cake for a local vendor fair, I had one that was funky but I wanted to show something more sophisticated! So I used an old prom dress as inspiration and this is what I came up with!

The hardest part was getting the swags to stay in place, every time I turned my back another one had fallen off, so eventually I called some help to just sit and hold them until they dried!
