Chocolate Fudge Wedding Cake
This Fudge wedding cake display is one I did a couple of years back when I worked at Vandewalls Candies. I have been a cake decorator for seven years now. When I first started out I took three Wilton cake decorating courses at Hobby Lobby and made cakes for friends and family just for fun.
Cake Decorating Work Experience
I have worked at four different bakeries, and at one point in time I was working at three of them around the clock to make enough money to remodel my house that I bought at age 21.
I worked at Hill Top Bakery in Kauakuna and the Piggly Wiggly each for three years as a bakers helper, doing donuts, pies, danishes, and decorating cakes. I've also worked at Vandewalls Candies in Appleton for 5 years as a decorator and baker. Decorating Ice cream cakes at Baskin Robbins for about a year was another great learning experience.
I loved working at all the bakeries and loved the people I've worked with very much! Working long hours at bakeries makes the people you work with become family and I still keep in contact with most of them.
Work At Home Mom
I am now 25 years old and I just had a baby on June 20th 2012, her name is Lilly. My fiancee and I decided that I would be a stay at home mommie.
I do not have to give up my passion as a decorator because I'm still able
to do continue it all for my friends and family in the comfort of my own home.
I even bought myself a professional stainless steel decorating table for my kitchen. I hope to some day own my own bakery.
Chocolate Fudge Wedding Cake Tip
This is one of my favorite designs that I've done. I iced the entire thing with chocolate fudge icing. Chocolate fudge icing is hard to ice with so here is a tip to make it easier. TIP
Make sure your cakes are baked a day before and put them in the freezer to harden and ice them while they are still frozen the following day.
Use a bucket scraper or what ever you like to use to ice and smooth your cake with. To make the cake look like it was done with fondant you smooth the edges with a piece of a cake color you would normally use to make a whipped cream torte. Cut a little piece and smooth the top edges of your cakes.
I used a tip number 2 to pipe in swirls with homemade chocolate butter cream. Use a gold ribbon tooling to go around the border of the cake.
This is a very elegant wedding cake and I wish you all the best of luck if you are going to give this a try. Just remember the TIP
and make sure if your going to ice with fudge icing to freeze your cake ahead of time. My Favorite Tip
