Fall Fantasy Wedding Cake

by Debi Hallowell
(East Springfield, P.A.)



This fall wedding cake was the most fun cake ever, it was my first attempt at gumpaste decorations.

Gumpaste Decorations


I cut out each leaf with a small Wilton cookie cutter then formed them in different ways by laying them over the edge of a box or gumpaste tool.

I then let them dry and applied various fall colored luster dust on each one with a small paint brush. I started making the leaves about 3 days before the cake was due so that they could dry.

I then made tiny acorns, also from gumpaste and floral wire to create curly-q branches. The cake itself was made from a box mix. Confetti cake to be exact. It made for a fun and yummy cake!

Grooms Cake Ideas


The bride asked me to do a grooms cake for her as well. I was very hesitant because I had never done a cut out cake with fondant. I promised her that I would try so I went to town.

I baked the cake and froze it so it was easier to cut. When I cut it I started making small cuts and I kept cutting until I had the shape of his race car cake. I formed the wheels of the car out of rice krispie treats and covered them with black fondant.

When I went to place the cake on the board it was too low for the wheels to fit under the cake. I had to cut a flat piece of krispie treats to raise the cake up off of the board. Bingo! It worked.

I covered the cake with fondant and used my airbrush to color the car blue. I used black fondant to make the bumpers. I used a small paint brush and food coloring to make the logos and writing on the sides and hood of the car.

Cake Decorating Techniques


These cakes inspired me to try my hand at new techniques. I am now making figures out of modeling chocolate and I now make my own fondant!

Easy to do and very nice to cover cakes with. All you need is a bag of marshmallows, some powdered sugar, water and flavoring. Quick and cheap!!!

A True Artist In Wedding Cake Design
by: Patrick Lyon

Debi created the wedding cake for my daughter Rachel when she married Nick Cacchione in April of 2009.

In fact, as I am writing this, they are celebrating their 3rd wedding anniversary (April 18th, 2012).

My daughter was busy like all brides at making plans for her wedding and found Debi's style just what she needed at the time. Debi had plenty of great ideas for her to consider and the cake turned out beautiful and got rave reviews at the wedding reception.

Not only is Debi a real pro at cake decorating, she's also a very talented artist.

Beautiful and unique!
by: Sandy Danch

It is obvious to me that this cake decorator takes the time to listen to her client and brings their visions to reality. To have beautiful fall foilage with a race car bride and groom shows that the client cleary had a unique vision that was brought to life. The groom cake absolutely tied it all together. Debi gets my vote!
