I had the pleasure of making this elegant 4-tier wedding cake with handmade sugarpaste orchids (my favourite!!) and gold accents. The cake was chocolate sour cream cake and strawberry vanilla cake with vanilla swiss meringue buttercream.
Here's another photo of the cake with flash. Make sure you check out my facebook page to see the gorgeous photo that the bride posted.
Cake Decorators Tip: Always bring a level tool! Actually in this case, I didn't need a level because the cake table was ridiculously wobbly. You spend so much time levelling each tier and stacking the cake perfectly, so it really sucks when the table is not level.
I will not mention the venue because they were very nice, as helpful as they could be and vowed to get a new table for cakes. I'm not sure if you can see, but the table is a little "battered", on an elevated platform that also wasn't too steady and the resolution was actually a pad of paper tucked in all corners of the stand to keep it level. However, in the end, I was satisfied with what they could do and they also allowed me to take photos of the paper-tucked table.
So, my tip is to have the venue help resolve the issue to your satisfaction and document it somehow. If you are still uncomfortable, make sure you have the table moved to a different lower traffic area or set up the table somewhere else.
On a gorgeous fall Sunday, I delivered this wedding cake to the beautiful McLean House at the Estates of Sunnybrook. I would say it was the most perfect day!
I loved where the cake table was set up by the staircase. It was perfect for this 3-tiered large ruffled wedding cake with a matching ruffled pedestal that the bride provided.
I love how this cake design came together - I felt like I was putting delicate large petals on this cake. I was also able to surprise the bride by creating a sugar flower that matched the flower design on her wedding dress.
Isn't this a lovely view from the top of the staircase?
I love making cakes shaped like other food items, like this giant hot dog cake. I had this great opportunity to be featured on the Ontario Premier's Blog and make a video. I came up with this cool homemade cake idea to share with everyone.
Everyone cake make this fun and fabulous cake that looks like a Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich. It doesn't require any fondant covering skills and its fast, easy and look fabulous! It's great for birthdays, an anniversary or any type of event. And for those who are allergic, it doesn't contain any peanuts!
Two 8-inch square vanilla cakes
Chocolate Buttercream, Chocolate buttercream (with some yellow food
coloring) to look like peanut butter.
