Ok here goes...I made this garden cake for my wedding this past weekend. It is the second wedding cake I have made. ( first one didn't turn out so great ) Though it is totally different from my original design ...in the end it fit my "Country boy meets City girl " theme perfectly.
The Cake Flavors
The cake is three different flavors, chocolate fudge with chocolate caramel ganache filling, carrot cake
with cream cheese filling and french vanilla with raspberry.
It's covered in fondant,
the flowers are sugar paste which I had never used before and have come to have a love/hate relationship with... I love how they came out, but hate how fragile they are (I broke a good third of the daisies hence why there are only roses on the top tier) My favorite part of the design is the yellow and champagne color scheme. Overall I think it came out well and everyone loved it. I want to thank you for all the helpful tips and ideas posted on your site...
I used a great many of them in the process of making this cake ...the ones that really made a difference for me were... making the cake ahead of time and freezing it,
letting it set for a few hours after daming and filling it, and using the popsicle stick for support. Also the pearl edging was made from a Wilton mold that I swear by...it saves so much time !!!
Next up a baby shower cake this weekend and my first fondant figurines...wish me luck!Tamyra, Good luck with your baby shower cake this weekend.
